The incredible weather continued with light South-Easterly winds and flat calm seas. The Milkfish have been here since October even though they have been considerably late in their offshore feeding due to the non-existent North-Westerly winds. Not only did the Milkies start to turn up on the Western edge of St François but there were also some incredible achievements during the week that will not be forgotten by the anglers in years to come. Tim Aldiss caught the 3rd biggest GT ever reordered on Alphonse, measuring 132 cm and approximately 110 lbs. To make things even more memorable the fish ate a fast-stripped NYAP in an explosive manner. The offshore action was described as “off the charts” with 5 sailfish being landed in 3 outings. Russell Crafter landed 3 Sailfish in 1 day and Joern Heiner and Ursula Mazura landed 2 really big Sailfish after long fights. Joern went on to catch his first Wahoo on fly which was of significant size!
Another super week at Alphonse! Tight lines from Keith, Devan and the Alphonse Team
