Milkfish continue to impress at Alphonse
By Charlie White
In the past weeks the Milkfish have been threatening to feed in a pattern that would allow anglers sufficient shots and chances of hooking these high flying speedsters. This week it changed in dramatic style with nine landed for the week, which meant that five times the amount had to be hooked. The new week kicked off in fine style with Jonathan S and Sarah A both landing Milkfish on the first day. Jonathan, Nick S and Frans C were up to the fight and challenge and went on to land two Milkfish each for the week.
The Bonefishing was exceptional with most guests catching more than 20 bonefish in a day when targeting them. Nicholas S had a day not to forget when he landed his first Permit while guided by Alec Gerbec. There isn’t a question of a doubt that Alphonse and St Francois hold the best milkfishing opportunities on this planet.

St Francois Atoll was on top form over the past week. An event occurred that only happens once every few years. Massive schools of rabbitfish formed bait balls and moved into the lagoon which in turn made the GT’s go absolutely wild. The GT fishing was fantastic over the last week coupled with amazing bonefishing and even a few permit and triggerfish being caught in between. Not only was the flats fishing amazing but also the bluewater angling, with anglers landing some catches of a life time.
Ten years ago, work started on constructing the Delphi Club on a beautiful, deserted beach in south Abaco. Financed by Peter Mantle and a group of fishing friends from Ireland, Britain and the US, the venture quickly established itself as one of the finest fishing lodges in the world.
