Jean Claude from Fishingzone, a passionate fisherman, owns one of the most famous fishing shops in Switzerland (Biel-Nidau). He comes for the first time to Rodrigues for a 34h and a day trip around Rodrigues. Weather is excellent and makes all techniques possible.

Trolling: the activity is difficult due to the too good sea conditions! Jean Claude makes his first blue marlin estimated about 120kg and well released! Beautiful dorados (14kg the largest) yellowfin tunas (23kg the largest)…and only 1 wahoo!

Jean Claude is a professional casting, and more…excellent jigger ! The discovery of multi-fishing as practiced on Black Marlin, particularly with Yann, seduced him and allowed him to make 15 species of fish. Come back whenever you want, Jean Claude !
