10 Anglers descended onto the shores of Alphonse Island for a great week of fishing. Overall, the anglers enjoyed great weather, despite a few light rainy days. The south-easterly trade winds change direction at this time of year making for a very beautiful angling experience.
The bonefishing was as on point with 330 Bones brought to hand over the week. The biggest of those measuring in at a decent 64 cm!
We were joined by first-time Seychelles angler Ben who had been fishing on Farquhar the week before. Ben decided to fish on Saturday and after a very stressful fight around many coral bommies, he managed to land a monstrous 123 cm Giant Trevally making this the biggest GT landed since the last festive season!
Ray, a long-time returning guest, managed to land two lovely Moustache Triggerfish on days two and four of the week. On day three, Mervin Young celebrated his belated birthday, reeling himself in a nice gift in the form of a 79 cm GT.
Steve managed to get things done on day 4 of the week. Honing in an awesome slam consisting of a 65 cm Giant Trevally, a 47 cm Indo-Pacific Permit and a nice fat Bonefish. Congratulations Steve!
All in all a spectacular week here on Alphonse with very happy guests and a ton of great memories. Well done to all anglers, old and new, on some very special catches and an exceptional week.
