    COSMOLEDO ISLAND REPORT (06-13 JANUARY)

    Bonefish catch on Cosmoledo Atoll 15 January 2022

    COSMOLEDO ISLAND FISHING NEWS | 06-13 JANUARY 2022

    The tenth week of the season began with 10 anglers half of which had fished the atoll on previous trips. We experienced neap tides for most of the week and we had the anglers covering large amounts of water. By day two all the new anglers had caught their first GTs and were now pushing hard for the big boys.

    Donnie Chisholm and Nedd Ruffin had a very open minded approach and wanted to catch as many species as possible through the week. They racked up a seriously long list which consisted of:

    • Giant trevally
    • Bluefin trevally
    • Bonefish
    • African marble grouper
    • Saddle back grouper
    • White blotched grouper
    • Swallowtail grouper
    • Blue spangled emperor
    • Bohar snapper
    • Potato Grouper (estimated at 40kgs)

    …..and the list goes on!

    For the guys that stuck to the GT fishing, they did very well on their numbers of fish and had countless shots at very big GTs. Sean Tierney and Nedd had one very special morning where they found a very large group of GTs with some bait and managed 12 fish between the two of them. Getting back to the big boys Brett Nichols was the lucky one, managing to catch a dream GT of one metre.

    Tight lines,
