Farquhar Atoll Fishing Report 25th October – 1st November 2023

Farquhar opened its arms to 10 eager anglers this week who gave it their best on the flats and, once again, the atoll produced some amazing fish.

Lance opened the week of fishing true style, landing his very first Bumphead Parrotfish. As the week progressed, the weather made for tough fishing and many of the guests took to the deeper water and coral heads, looking for and landing an array of different reef species. All the guests managed to tick off new species, one of the more notable catches was an 88 cm African Marbled Grouper landed by Noah.

The Giant Trevally were out in full force towards the end of the week with Noah, and guide Evan, managing to land five in one day! Noah’s main goal for the week was to try and land just one GT over-the-metre-mark, he exceeded all his expectations landing not only one, but two at 104 and 122 cm respectively. His 122 cm Giant Trevally is now the biggest for this Farquhar season so far. As if the day couldn’t get better, he also landed a bonefish and a beautiful Yellowmargin Triggerfish to bag Flats Slam. Like father like son Noah’s dad, Fernando, also landed himself a sizeable Moustache Triggerfish.

Noah continued on his GT rampage throughout the week landing three more in the last two days, one measuring 99 cm and another over a metre at 109 cm. Lance also joined the GT train landing his first two GTs in the second half of the week.

Another epic week showcasing Farquhar’s big GTs and diversity!
