Farquhar Atoll Fishing News 7th – 12th December 2019

Weather conditions throughout the week very good with mostly sun and little wind. Tides started off as a cycle of neaps which moved towards spring tides at the end of the week.

A healthy total of nine giant trevally were caught in the week, three of which were landed on the flats by Jaron Simon. Peter Jenkins, Jim Mossop and Darren Hanifl all managed to tick the GT box, all landing their first GT on fly. Taking it down to the wire Mike Lee caught two GTs in last couple hours of the week, the biggest of which was a solid fish of 95 cm. Also catching on the final day Darren added to his first fish by catching another GT before tackling down and wrapping up.

A total of 29 bonefish kept rods bent throughout the week. Jaron and Peter were both lucky enough to get their hands on some gold, landing their first Indo-Pacific permit. The bumpy’s were cruising the flats throughout the week but as usual were being tough to catch. A handful of fish were hooked but only two landed by Mike and father in law Paul.

The spring tides that came towards the end of the week brought the triggerfish out and boat partners William and Peter had an epic session on their final day landing three triggerfish between them. Bob and Jim both landed their first triggerfish on fly earlier in the week.

On the bluewater side of things, three anglers achieved a “Bills and Bones” slam, Darren, Mike and Jim, all successfully landing a sailfish and bonefish on the same day. While teasing for sails Bob landed the only wahoo for the week.
