However, the guests that spent the final week of the season at Alphonse were able to land some absolutely fantastic catches. The weather throughout the week was excellent with a light northwesterly wind blowing. Anglers were fortunate enough to fish a neap tide.

The bonefishing was brilliant as usual. Anglers landed 307 bonefish over the week. The largest bonefish of the week measured a massive 68 cm which is a fantastic specimen.

Day one was off to a bang for Peter Ross. Peter managed to land a massive 50 cm yellowmargin triggerfish. Mark Hannah landed his first moustache triggerfish on day one as well.
