Astove fishing report 7th – 14th November 2019

Astove Island opened the 2019 season with the team being well rested and ready to receive their first guests. The two rods that joined for first week fished under tough conditions, strong winds and rough seas made it challenging for the guides and guests alike.
Ray Palmer and Jim Bankston fought through the poor weather early in the week to catch three GT’s, two permit, multiple bonefish and a giant 70 cm bluefin.

Ray had a little tough luck with four big GTs refusing his fly early in the week, slowly this changed as the days progressed and he landed two large triggerfish and two GTs of 70 and 71 cm.

Jim obviously angered the fish gods and had some hard luck, pulling the hook on a permit five minutes into the fight and losing a 90+ cm GT at the leader. He pushed on to end and finished on a high landing three GT’s between 65 and 75 cm.

Ray did especially well, ticking off the species list day by day and catching most of what was presented to him. His total for the week was two triggerfish, two permit, two GT’s along with multiple bonefish.
