ALPHONSE ISLAND FISHING NEWS | WEEK 3 | 24 – 31 OCTOBER 2020
As the world has started to open up and the spirits have been lifted, we have been fortunate enough to welcome a few fishing guests to our tropical paradise. John Butcher, Preben Damm and Paul Davidson joined us for an incredible week of flats fishing on St Francois Atoll.
Alphonse Island greeted our anglers with beautiful weather and the tail end of the slow-moving neap tides. As the week progressed our guests managed to experience a wide variety of tidal variation as the tides moved from neaps to springs.
Paul spent most of his week enjoying the incredible world-class bonefishing, closing his week off with close to 80 bonefish. Both John and Preben spent loads of time enjoying the incredible bonefishing that St Francois Atoll has to offer.
Preben, however, managed to complete a lifelong dream. After losing a huge GT on day one he managed to close his GT account with a gorgeous GT of 86 cm. John found the trigger fishing to be incredibly engaging and set his target for the week. He managed to reach his target with a beautiful moustache triggerfish caught and released in the surf.
After a great week with great guests, St Francois Atoll and Alphonse both showed off everything they have to offer.
