Alphonse Island Fly Fishing Report 6th – 13th March 2021
Its week two on the waters at Alphonse and all the anglers have been catching what they love on the flats once again! We cant wait to get back out there now! We will now pass you over to the guides! –
6th – 13th March 2021
The fishing has been just about as brilliant as the weather on Alphonse and St Francois over the past week. Anglers were lucky enough to fish the transition between a spring and neap tide. The flats and the bluewater angling has been fantastic considering the low number of anglers wetting their lines and bending their rods.
The Bonefishing was as good as always. Anglers managed to land a total of 48 Bonefish over the week. Day one was a brilliant day for Bobby. Bobby landed 20+ Bonefish in one session and a fantastic 80 cm GT. Day two was another fantastic day both on bluewater and the flats. Phillipe landed a massive 90 cm GT and Marc landed a beautiful 91 cm Milkfish. Mitch also landed a fantastic 90 cm GT guided by the legendary guide Gerry who cut his teeth on Farquhar Atoll.
Gregory had an amazing day on a bluewater trip. Greg landed three beautiful sailfish on fly weighing between 80 lbs and 100 lbs. Mike was back on the bluewater on day three. Mike came extremely close to landing the first bluewater slam of the season but unfortunately could not get a sailfish to stick to the hooks. Mike landed a well-sized Wahoo on a 12 wt rod and then brought out his deadly little 9 wt and managed to catch a well sized Yellowfin Tuna on an old GT fly.
Another fantastic week was spent at Alphonse Island fishing the St Francois Atoll. Memories were made and bonds were formed that will last a life time. Stay tuned for next week’s report as we are sure you won’t want to miss it.
