Alphonse Island Fishing Report Jan 2019
We have had a report in from Alphonse Island in the Seychelles, it has been fishing very well recently and the group of customers out there have had some phenomenal sport. Why not have a read of the latest report and see for yourselves just how good it has been.
The weather on Alphonse Island was challenging from day one with daily rain showers and gusty winds, yet despite the tough weather the guests were out every day giving it there all.
Bonefish were the target for the first day and we saw guests catch 20 plus bones and some large 50-60 cm fish.
The Giant Trevallys were angry this week and really gave the guys a hard time. Alan, losing his entire fly line to a beast early in the week, finally got his revenge with a wonderful 81 cm GT. The GT of the week, at 107 cm, was taken in the surf and gave an incredible battle to both the angler and the guide. Before the fish was landed it dragged the angler almost off the skiff, destroyed the entire drag and eventually popped the spool off the reel.
A fair amount of time was spent by some of the guests popping and dredging, Bohar snapper, Jobfish, various coral species and some Giant bluefin trevally including a 63 cm specimen were landed.
With the tide moving from neaps to springs the hunt for Trigger fish was on, Nick being the only guest to land a yellow margin trigger much later in the week.
A tough week for all but good memories and unforgettable moments were taken home.
