    COSMOLEDO ISLAND REPORT (27 JANUARY-03 FEBRUARY)

    6 February 2022

    COSMOLEDO ATOLL FISHING NEWS | 27 JANUARY – 03 FEBRUARY 2022

    The 12th week of the Cosmoledo season began with 12 anglers and lots of excitement all round. We have been facing some adverse weather conditions in and around the atoll, but despite that we anticipated that week 12 would be a great week.

    As we had hoped the week was a fantastic show, with all round great angling and new anglers catching there first GT within the first couple of days on Cosmoledo. Some of the guests concentrated on specific species as it was their first time in the Seychelles. Drew Chicone was leading the pack in this regard as he caught everything in his path – groupers, snappers, GTs, triggerfish, bluefin and many more!

    Over the week we had a good number of GTs showing up in all sizes. Two very large GT were unfortunately hooked and then lost but despite that the search contuned and the lucky skiff pairing for the week was Gentry Lee and David Buck, both landing a metre fishing on the same day!

    The stars aligned for two anglers who both ended up with Flats Slams for the week. Adam Barker started with a magical GT, a personal best bonefish and his very first Indo-Pacific permit. Scott Mackenzie ended a fantastic week with a GT, bonefish and a very special yellowmargin triggerfish.
