2016 will stay a year rich in some very good memories for ”Le Performant Fishing Club” in the domain of Big Game Fishing in the water of Mauritius. One of these good time was the record catch of the club. On the 11 of October, the angler Mr Stiaan Van Der Walt and her Wife Azelle Van Der Walt from South Africa who were having their honeymoon holiday on our paradise island Mauritius, caught the 1060 LBS Blue Marlin on our boat “Le Performant 1”.Nicolas was the captain of the vessel and Siva (member of the crew).
The Permal Family was waiting this wonderful moment for more than 50 years to catch a 1000 LBS fish and luckily was Mr Nimalen Permal (Director of Club, 3rd-generation fisherman in the family) to have this opportunity to live this beautiful club record. Nimalen start his career in the big game fishing since early age and now he has more than 25 years of experience in the sea of Indian Ocean.
