ALPHONSE ISLAND FISHING NEWS | WEEK 12 | 04 DECEMBER – 11 DECEMBER 2021
Another productive week here on Alphonse with some returning guests and some new faces. Unfortunately, we had some very trying conditions with lots of wind and rain, we all persevered through, and some memorable fish were caught by the guests throughout the course of week 12!
Starting with the ghosts of the flats, Ed, Marcin, Anita and Bryce all caught their first bonefish on fly. The GTs were definitely out and about this week with Patrick landing the GT of the week measuring a healthy 105 cm, not only was this a healthy catch but was also Patrick’s personal best. He also managed to land another GT later in the week.
Mike, Paul, Keith and Richard all also managed to land two GTs each this week, David took it further and managed to add another GT to his tally during the week. Marcin took his first swing at fishing in the salt this week and managed his first GT and an awesome one at that measuring 101 cm, he also caught another two on the last day he was fishing Alphonse.
Ed also caught his first GT this week landing a lovely 82 cm fish. In terms of the more knifing species, Mike managed to land a nice moustache triggerfish and James managed to land the holy grail of fly fishing, a lovely Indo-Pacific permit on the last day. He also managed to land an awesome bluefin of 68 cm.
All in all, a successful week of fishing considering the conditions. Well done to all our guests for some awesome catches. Next week’s weather is looking phenomenal and the fishing has been awesome, so stay tuned for next week’s report.
