Alphonse Island Fly Fishing Report 9th – 16th October 2021

It’s been another fantastic week at Alphonse Island, with a phenomenal 534 Bonefish being landed by the lucky 12 anglers who visited the flats, as well as the bluewater fishing still producing with five Sailfish and a Yellowfin Tuna!

Alphonse Island – 09/10/2021

We were blessed with impeccable weather once again this week, with lovely sunny days on the flats. This week’s anglers caught the last few days of spring tides and finished off with neaps providing them with great fishing conditions.

This week was filled with bonefish with a staggering 343 fish caught, with a large proportion of the anglers catching 20+ bonefish producing lots of bell ringing. There have been some big bonefish around with anglers Jim, Jasper, Bruce, Wally, Leo, Murray and Keith all landing Bonefish over 60 cm. The Permit have also been showing themselves with Jasper catching one every day except Friday. The biggest being an incredible 74 cm fish beating his personal best.

Yvonne also managed to coax a Permit to eat his alphlexo, catching his personal best fish of 68 cm. GT Friday proved to be the day, with the biggest fish for the week coming out, well done Jim on a lovely 81 cm fish. Considering the GTs were a little scarce at times, Bill and his guide Trevor decided to target some Milkfish. Two and a half gruelling hours later and a trip around the atoll they landed a magnificent 104 cm Milkfish. The last notable catch for the week was a 68 cm Yellow-dot Kingfish caught by David. The bluewater fishing is still on fire, with guests David and Bill catching five Sailfish and a Yellowfin Tuna on fly.

Well done to all the anglers on some memorable catches and we hope to see you back soon. The tides are looking great for next week with Permit and Trigger fishing being the choice of species for the week and GTs closer to the end of the week when the spring cycle begins to kick in. That’s it from Alphonse this week, stay tuned for next weeks catch report.
