    Alphonse Island Fishing News | 14th – 21st  March 2020

    Unfortunately, the Alphonse Island season was ended a few weeks early due to the Covid-19 outbreak. However, the guests that spent the final week of the season at Alphonse were able to land some absolutely fantastic catches. The weather throughout the week was excellent with a light northwesterly wind blowing. Anglers were fortunate enough to fish a neap tide.

    The bonefishing was brilliant as usual. Anglers landed 307 bonefish over the week. The largest bonefish of the week measured a massive 68 cm which is a fantastic specimen.

    Day one was off to a bang for Peter Ross. Peter managed to land a massive 50 cm yellowmargin triggerfish. Mark Hannah landed his first moustache triggerfish on day one as well.

    Ms Chantal Chone a famous and legendary Alphonse angler landed another yellowmargin triggerfish on day three measuring 40 cm. Day four was the best day on the water. Nick Lloyd landed a fantastic 40 cm permit. Peter Ross landed the biggest GT of the season measuring a whopping 127 cm.

    Another fantastic week was spent at Alphonse Island fishing St. François Atoll. Memories were made and bonds were formed that will last a lifetime.
