Week 2 at Astove Atoll

by Louise Laycock

What many people don’t know is that it’s equally as impressive for other species like Bonefish, Triggerfish, Permit and an array of other species. The 6 anglers this week took full advantage of the variety and landed 9 Triggerfish and numerous Bonefish around the 8lbs mark. Throw in 75 GT’s and you have a combination that offers anglers the chance of a “Flats Slam”. In total we had 4 “Flats Slams” with Ronnie B landing an impressive “Double Flats Slam”, comprising of 2 Bones, 2 Triggers and 2 GT’s. Helmut Z landed the biggest GT of the week measuring 120cm. Joern H’s monster wasn’t far off measuring 117cm.  Joern and Maria stayed for 2 weeks racking up an impressive 59 GTs between them. Does it get any better?
