COSMOLEDO FISHING NEWS | 22 – 29 DECEMBER 2022
The week was perfect weather-wise and held up to the high Seychelles expectations. The calmness allowed for the elusive milkfish to make an appearance, which was welcomed with open arms by the anglers.
Steven Esrick was named the GT king for the week, having managed to land 13 in total. Despite being so busy with the geets, he did not miss out on the milkfish action and also bought one to hand. He also brought in a yellowdot trevally which deserves a special mention as a cool and unusual catch.
Lenny Englander was lucky enough to cross paths with a 103 cm GT using a fly he tied himself. A special fish made even more thrilling by the way he caught it.
Chris Griffith managed six GTs for the week and also caught an emerald parrot fish, a truly special fish that many people have never caught even after having fished for years. It was the perfect warm-up for his next week on Cosmo.
Valerii Naumochkin a long-time Alphonse Fishing Company guest showed us his skills, catching six GTs and a beautiful milkfish.
Last, but certainly not least, Alex Hirst took a liking to deep-water fishing and took full advantage of both the flats and the outer atoll fishing. He easily racked up the most species and some special mentions go out to his 14 GTs, male and female saddleback grouper as well a beautiful napoleon wrasse.
Stay tuned for the next report from Cosmo!
