What does COVID-19 mean for our future?

ALPHONSE ISLAND FISHING NEWS – First Super Slam Of The Season

14 January 2020

Alphonse Island Fishing News | 03 – 11 January 2020

This week at Alphonse Island there were nine very skilled and eager anglers. The weather was good, and the moon was in its third-quarter which brought on a neap tide. The neap tide brought a lot of warm water into St. François lagoon making the fishing challenging however this made the surf fishing extremely productive. The bonefishing was as excellent as always with 153 bonefish being landed by some extremely lucky anglers.

Day one was off to a good start for Adam Mahone, Adam managed to land the largest bonefish of the week measuring 63 cm. Mark Beilovich landed a fantastic 70 cm GT. Mike Mach landed a 60 cm GT. Travis Townsend landed two GT’s measuring 62 cm and 70 cm. Travis landed another 70 cm GT on day four.

Kyle Simpson guided Gabe Nyblad onto a massive 103 cm milkfish on day five and then on day six guided Christian onto the first super slam of the season. Christian landed a bonefish, a moustache triggerfish, two milkfish and two GT’s measuring 65 cm and 83 cm. Alexey managed to land three GT’s on day six measuring 60 cm, 78 cm and 88 cm.

Another fantastic week was spent at Alphonse Island fishing St. François  Atoll. Memories were made and bonds were formed that will last a lifetime. Stay tuned for next week’s report as we are sure you won’t want to miss it.

Tight Lines,
