The week started with strong South-easterly winds as this season continues to run late. The early season bonefishing has continued to impress and so have the triggerfish, trevally and permit catches. This week proved to be a big GT week with some real monsters landed on the flats, in the channels and along the surf line. The normal bout of tackle failure occurred as numerous anglers lost tackle to these big unforgiving ‘tackle busters’.

Andrew Martin managed to hang onto an unforgettable brace of big fish. His first GT measured 112 cm (63 lbs) and a couple days later he topped it with a fish of 118 cm in length and a 90 cm in girth (75 lbs). Stanislav Gorbounov also landed a personal best GT of 111 cm (60 lbs). The week got even better when Andrew Wood and Sergey Ivanyutin both landed “Flats Slams” comprising of a GT, triggerfish and bonefish all in one session.
