St Brandon Blog: 6 – 16 Nov 2023

Welcome to our 10th week of the season! We were back into the spring tides with lots of cold water moving onto the atoll, but again next to no wind for the week which made things challenging at times.  

The cold water along with some welcomed low water brought the Bones back onto the flats. Good numbers of fish in the 8lbs range, along with a couple over 9lbs including angler Derrick’s 9,5lbs trophy provided some really exciting fishing. 

The permit were however very elusive this week, with only one being landed by Ryan.

The GT fishing was also pretty tough, with one smaller fish of 75cm coming to hand, but we did enjoy some good Golden & Bluefin action at times.

All in all, not the most productive fishing week unfortunately for our guests, but we feel the lack of wind was the major culprit here.

Our catch tally for the week was: 

  • Bonefish – 100
  • Permit – 1
  • GTs – 1
  • Bluefin Trevally – 4
  • Golden Trevally – 3

Till next week,
