The Seychelles (Indian
Bonefish- Expect large numbers
of tailing fish while wade fishing. The fish average around 4lbs and very
readily take most bonefish patterns. Some of the more effective patterns we
found were the x-mas island special and the honey shrimp. While most of the
fish you encounter will be tailing, you will see some large singles and
doubles. The bone minnow was a very effective pattern for these fish.
Trigger fish- One of the more
unique fish an angler will ever encounter. All of our Permit patterns were
producers. Angler can except to find fairly spooky fish with presentations
needed according to tidal flows.
Trevally- Most baitfish
patterns will produce memorable strikes from the veracious fish.
Permit- We did encounter a few
permit each day. So anglers should plan on fishing some of the day with a few
of the crab patterns we stock that work well for bones and permit.
Reef fish- For anglers wanting
to catch a variety of species take heavy sinking lines and some of our larger
baitfish patterns and fish beyond the reef.
Milkfish- Algae patterns that
are specific to that area. The guides at Alphonse Island Fishing Co. have a
good assortment of these patterns on hand.
