Marlin and Sailfish
‘Billfish’ is a name often given to marlin and sailfish, huge gamefish that are the ultimate prize of many sports fishermen and women.
Billfishing is excellent at Groote, where marlin and sailfish are found in high numbers, particularly during the peak season at the end of the year. But we do catch them all year round—something that doesn’t generally happen anywhere else.
Large juvenile black marlin are caught around the island, and the sailfish around Groote are some of the biggest in the world. The average size sailfish out here is 35 kilograms (77 pounds), but we’ve caught some almost double that size. (The world record for sailfish is 90kg).
Our boats are custom designed game vessels fully equipped with quality game fishing equipment specifically for chasing billfish. They’re fast and smooth.
