By David Elliott Ocean Warrior 3 has been fishing the offshore wrecks and we have had some big Pollock off Brighton. The weather finally let us get a couple of days in for some offshore fishing. By David Elliott Ocean Warrior 3 has had a couple of good wrecking trips for South Coast Bass fishing out at sea at last, due to the recent bad weather we have been having! We managed to get out to the mid-channel wrecks for some South Coast Bass fishing, and there have been some good sized Bass showing. If you have been searching for the most remote, off-the-grid, untouched flats fishery on the planet, then St.
The yacht has side stabilizers, a large indoor and outdoor living area and a fully rigged game fishing aft deck.
Brandon’s after the ocean crossing from Mauritius, no time is wasted getting you onto the flats. Hard to reach and far from anything, we are very direct in saying that this is not a trip for just anyone.
Boasting a 23-foot beam and a 7.5-foot draft, she can accommodate up to eight fly fishermen, four guides and a crew of four who cater to your every need.
The guides immediately put their vast Indian Ocean experience and planning to work, allowing you to fish and explore the Atoll’s huge expanse of pure white sand flats and broken coral islands, all of which are infested with large, naive bonefish. Guests will need to fly into the main island of Mauritius the day before the trip begins and should overnight at a local hotel the night before.
If you want to fish “the next frontier” in the world of saltwater flats, however, then a journey to St.
We can testify from personal experience that this is the most spectacular bonefishing you will ever encounter.
On most tides, anglers can expect to see huge schools of bonefish as well as enormous singles and doubles. Over the past few seasons, this fishery has delivered bonefish that measure up to nearly three feet (87 centimeters) fork length, weighing in excess of 15 pounds.


Brandon’s will be accommodated in a new land-based, four bedroom guesthouse on Raphael Island in the northern part of the atoll.
What you will find upon arrival, however, is an incredibly pristine ecosystem that is totally untouched.
When fishing the area, you will oftentimes feel as if you are the first person to set foot on a particular flat.
There will be two guests per room for the first season, and the guesthouse will feature two fully functioning bathrooms with showers, toilets and hot running water. When specifically targeting these notoriously finicky fish (the Indo-Pacific permit are just as difficult as their Caribbean cousins) anglers are usually afforded multiple shots per day.
While the new guesthouse and land-based facilities are fairly basic, they are indeed very comfortable, with air conditioning in all of the bedrooms, new social and lounge areas and a newly built and fully-equipped kitchen. There are new staff and guide quarters as well as a “saltwater mud room” area with freshwater facilities located right at the boat ramp. This area provides the ideal location for guests to “boot up” each morning and is the perfect place to rig, store and clean all gear and equipment each day.Also beginning with the fall 2016, water transfers to and from the atoll will be made using two 50-foot Sportfisher vessels. Each of the Sportfishers that will be used for transport to and from the atoll will be able to accommodate four guests, one guide and three crew members at a time. While the Sportfishers are not as large and comfortable as the Gryphon (the mothership that was used from 2013-2015), these boats are currently the only transfer option to get guests to and from the atoll.
Basic information on the Sportfisher transfer boats is as follows:There will be two boats which will do the crossing together (each able to accommodate 4 guests, 1 guide, 1 skipper and 2 crew members). The boats do the crossing side by side.Both boats are registered and licensed in Mauritius for offshore sailing.
Mauritius is well known for strict safety and security regulations whereby each boat is fully equipped with the latest technology and safety equipment.Each boat will have a qualified 200T master onboard and one of the skippers will be the former skipper of the Gryphon.


Each boat will have three crewmembers including the skipper.Each boat has three cabins (two cabins for four clients). There is also a bathroom, a kitchen and lounge area and the large back deck area.The crossing will usually take a maximum of 24–hours to reach the South Island of St.
