ALPHONSE ISLAND REPORT 19 – 26 FEBRUARY 2022
A week of GT’s in tricky weather here on Alphonse, starting with strong winds, almost cancelling a day or two at the start of the week, but as the week progressed the weather was spectacular with blue skies and windless days. Although we had tough conditions that didn’t stop our anglers from catching some awesome fish, with over 30 GTs being caught this week!
Starting with bonefish Jessie managed to catch his first, while Graham managed to catch his first bonefish over 60 cm. Miles, Peter, Jessie and Graham also all managed to catch 20+ bonefish in a day, which crowned them a part of the 20+ Bonefish Club. On the GT side of things, Phillipe, Jake, Jessie and Benoit all did really well and managed to catch their first 1st GTs, with Benoit getting a really nice first fish of 82 cm. Brian also managed a really nice size GT of 92 cm, although Bo definitely took the cake this week with a magnificent fish of 106 cm and her first fish over one metre. Bo also managed to catch an additional five GTs this week making her the ultimate GT angler for the week. Kajsa was close behind catching five in the week giving their boat a total of 11 GTs, which is phenomenal!
Some other noteworthy GT anglers included Miles who caught five GTs – one of which was a healthy 85 cm, Alister who caught four and finally Donald who added a couple to his tally. Donald did however also manage to catch his first permit which is an incredible achievement. Once again, we had one Slam this week caught by Jessie consisting of a GT (his first) a milkfish (another of his firsts) and finally a bonefish.
That’s it from us here on Alphonse this week. Next week’s weather is looking spectacular and with the spring tides coming up we should have some phenomenal fishing.
