This week was the first week of the much anticipated Farquhar Island season. The first week started out well with all anglers getting a taste of the species that roam the flats including GT, Bonefish and even some very nice Bumphead Parrotfish.
Farquhar Island – 20/10/2021
The opening week of the 2021- 2022 Farquhar season got off to an incredible start with some great catches throughout our guests. The family trio of Johnathan, Johnathan and Jennifer had an outstanding week! Johnathan and Jennifer both managed equal Flat Slams as well as several other great species throughout the week.
Alejandro also managed a Slam that comprised of an Indo-Pacific Permit, Bonefish and GT. It was the first Permit of the season. He also had a great variety of species under his belt at the end of the week.
Rasmus and Martin had a stellar week. Martin managed to land the first Bumphead Parrotfish of the season as well as the biggest GT of the week measuring an impressive 112 cm. He did not stop there as he also managed an impressive Permit after sadly losing one at the net. He also managed to land himself a Flat Slam!
Rasmus shot the lights out at mid-week with an impressive Super Slam comprising of Bonefish, GT, Permit and Bumpy, sadly the Triggerfish did not materialize. Jacob consistently ticked over the number counter with steady GT catches throughout the week but sadly lost a Bumpy after a long fight.
Despite the weather not always being conducive as there was still a stiff SE trade wind blowing with patches of rain from time to time, the group were constantly in great spirits, especially around the bar in the evenings swapping the day’s war stories.
