Excellent January catches
Jan 15: Early January has seen the final stages of the annual bonefish spawning migration to the south of the island. These fish are now returning to their normal feeding grounds in the Marls. But this has not affected catches, which have generally been excellent.
Father and son team, Maurice & James Henchey from the UK, had a great haul yesterday, taking 22 bones and losing as many more. While fellow Brit, young Arthur Wace caught his first ever bonefish, fishing alongside his father Rupert, who had seven to the boat.
At the turn of the year, another father and son team, Hugo & Roland Cassirer from New York, had 24 in a day. And Jared Hall from West Virginia found it all too easy, making double figure catches everyday, whilst fitting in some family time on the club beach as well.
Happily, the weather has just retuned to normal after a couple of windy and wet days.
