Farquhar Atoll Fishing News 27th November – 4th December 2019
Another interesting week of fishing on Farquhar has come to an end. Weather was a challenge throughout the week with a large weather system closing on the Seychelles, this caused conditions to change constantly. The high wind and cloud was a feature made both spotting and casting difficult.
Tides started off as new moon springs which transitioned into neap tides at week’s end. Despite the difficult conditions, our guests and guides made it had a great time and good fishing, landing 30 GT’s for the week.
Guests Charlie Limond and Graham Huttun lead the way with 11 and 12 fish. Charlie landed two fish over a metre, one being 104 cm the other 106 cm. Ken Matsumoto, Toshi Sekiguchi, Gerhard Linska, Angelika Linska, Larry Tailor, Heinz Joella, Patrick Gras all landed GT’s. In total 38 bonefish were landed, with Graham’s 67 cm fish topping the list. Larry also caught a personal best bonefish of 63 cm.
Elaine Tailor landed her first triggerfish and Patrick landed a huge 55 cm triggerfish. Two bumpy’s were caught in the week with one by Elaine, which was her first bumpy and one by Gerhard, also his first. Both bumpy’s were large fish measuring over 90 cm.
With the weather being as unpredictable as it was bluewater fishing was not possible. Despite this, all of the anglers had good species fishing inside the lagoon. Charlie caught a very impressive 80 cm bohar snapper which put up one hell of a fight.
