Alphonse Island News – Big Bones, Triggers, GTs and Milks!





The weather turned for the better last week and even though the occasional squall did interfere with a few sessions the bonefishing was exceptional with numerous anglers catching more than 20 per day, with an impressive total of 395 landed for the week.

The triggerfish played their normal games by outwitting numerous anglers but through sheer determination – and skill of course – Mattias Kantorek landed his first yellowmargin triggerfish and Uwe Holzkamp followed suite with a large giant triggerfish. 

The GTs played their part in deflating the team’s egos and removing pieces of tackle from various outfits with some hooking as many as four in a day – with an end result of zero landed… 

At the end of the week it had to be said that the GTs definitely took the honours with just six landed and Ronald Benck’s fish of 94cm the largest.

Oscar Nieber landed one of the largest thick lipped trevally (Caragoides orthogrammos) ever caught on St Francois, which added to the astounding variety of species for the week, which also included a magnificent 30lb Milkfish to Terry Coleman to round off a great set of results for the week.

Tight lines from Keith Rose-Innes, Devan Van der Merwe and the Alphonse team.
