Opening week of Astove Atoll

By Charlie White

Opening week of Astove Atoll

It was no surprise when Peter O started off the season by catching the first “Flats Grand Slam”, comprising of a Bonefish, Triggerfish and a GT on the first day. His luck didn’t end there as he managed another “Slam”, consisting of a Bonefish, GT and a Milkfish. Peter M started his trip off by landing a 100cm fish on the first day, he later went onto landing an impressive fish of 111cm, the biggest of the week. Unfortunately the weather didn’t play its part for the first part of the week with lots and rain, wind and heavy swell on the “wild side” of the atoll. Once the weather eased its grip and the sun came out the fishing improved drastically with the the numbers of fish caught doubling.  The weather shifted focus on the inside of the lagoon where an uncountable amount of Bonefish were caught, several Permit were seen and big GTs were landed, all in skinny water.

The tally at the end of the week stands as follows:  93 GT’s of which 5 were over 100cm, 2 Triggerfish and 1 Milkfish.

Alphonse Island Report Week of 28th December 2019 to 4th January 2020

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.
