Alphonse Island Fishing News 8 – 15 April 2017
The spring tides were back on Alphonse and St Francois and with them a variety of choices available for the angler. There is the chance of challenging triggerfish on the finger flats and surf sections. The possibility of seeing and being able to target the elusive permit on the sand flats. Who could pass up the latent chance to catch a ferocious giant trevally. These are very possibly the world’s finest bonefishing flats and should be on every saltwater fisherman’s bucket list.
Despite a couple of windy days and tough casting the team persisted and managed to land an impressive 330 bonefish before changing their focus to other species. Mark Rodick´s fish of a lifetime, a 15lb indo-pacific permit that had everyone drooling over the pictures and listening to some great anecdotes about that wonderful catch.
On the triggerfish front Sprat Nabors left his mark on the lips of a couple of these spooky fish catching two triggerfish, and so did Richard Bronks, Tim Rogers, Richard Baugh and Mark Rodick.
Not many weeks left until the end of the season here and the fishing on Alphonse and St. Francois is still in great shape!
