Madagascar Fishing Adventures caters for all angling types, but specializes in spinning and jigging. By utilising Sakatia Lodge as well as live-a-board yachts, Madagascar Fishing Adventures offers access to extensive fishing areas, including the remote fisheries north and south of Nosy Be and legendary Castor Bank. A big draw card of this area is the excellent year round sea conditions, due to the protection of the mainland. With little or no swell, light winds and no surf launches or tidal restrictions, losing a fishing day due to weather / sea conditions is highly unlikely.

From deep jigging for massive dogtooth tuna, to estuary and inshore light tackle angling, casting at free swimming sailfish with stick baits, throwing surface poppers for big GT's and everything in between, there is something to satisfy every angler!

North-western Madagascar is renowned for the large numbers of sailfish and marlin that pass through these waters at certain times of the year. The fishing season runs from 15 March – 15 January each season.

An Experience From Anakao Fishing Village

On the South West coast of Madagascar lies the small fishing village of Anakao. The white sand and crystal clear lagoon were very welcoming as we arrived to this absolutely stunning location!

A party was getting ready to take place to celebrate their move to this new location. I got settled into my bungalow and went back out to the common area to play the impossible game of Chinese Checkers and chat with the new gang.

The music began as the sun went down, the island locals came out of the wood work to enjoy the delicious Malagasy and French cuisine and the tasty rum punch. The men started doing their funny chicken dance and Christine, Michael and I jumped right in with them, dancing the night away.
