COSMOLEDO FISHING NEWS | 2 – 9 FEBRUARY 2023
The week on Cosmoledo was definitely one for the books! The full moon spring tides brought a lot of fish through the surf and onto the flats. The skiffs fishing both within the lagoon and in the surf zone, all saw large numbers of fish throughout the duration of the day. The week was focused on surf walks, and we were blessed with the perfect wind and light conditions to do so.
The majority of the giant trevally numbers were produced on the numerous surf walks throughout the week, predominantly during the start of the pushing tide in the surf zone.
Ed Shugrue was fortunate enough to land himself his first flats slam. A super slam on the flats of Cosmo on his first day of fishing here this week. Ed bagged himself a bonefish, giant trevally, yellowmargin triggerfish and a beautiful Permit all within a relatively small area. A big congratulations to Ed for his outstanding achievement.
Henry Gasiorowoski, Van Sternbergh, James Slipper, Ed Shugrue, John Sullivan and Paul Hudson all managed to capture their very first giant trevally on Cosmo and walked away with a couple more to end their week.
Carlton Goldthwait landed himself the biggest giant trevally of the week with a 90 cm fish caught on a popper off coral heads in South West channel. A great fish caught in a difficult area.
Richard Mulcahy had a phenomenal surf walk session on his last day and landed a total of eight giant trevally in the surf within a couple of hours, on the pushing tide. Well done on your achievement Rich!
Stay tuned for the next report from Cosmo!
