More than 1,000 kilometers southwest of the main island of Mahé and about 200 kilometers north of Madagascar lies the Cosmoledo Atoll. - Right in the middle of the Indian Ocean and very far from any landmass! Among saltwater anglers, Cosmoledo was once known as the world's premier destination for GT (giant trevally) fishing. However, five years ago, the atoll was closed due to problems with pirates, and security could no longer be guaranteed.
In 2014, Cosmoledo Atoll is allowed to be fished again for the first time. The operation with the expedition boat Maya Dugong is militarily protected, providing a sense of security. Sensational catch results are reported after a test tour in February. - So our expectations are high, especially considering the trip is both elaborate and expensive. My angler friend from Munich, Helmut Alleze, is accompanying me in the very first week, along with the operation's owners, the Collins family, some South Americans, and English anglers. Personally, I will be staying in Cosmoledo for two weeks.
Our group is truly relaxed and pleasant! Everyone from the first and second week is super nice, we have a lot of fun, and we get along brilliantly. Thank you all for this unforgettable, wonderful time together!
