GABON REPORT BACK – 7 TO 16 MARCH 2017
Week 3 of the 2017 season we were joined by a group from the UK plus one South African guest. Unfortunately for the new guests in camp, the good fishing in the surf slowed down dramatically compared to the the previous week. We’ve not had rain for almost two weeks now, which is very unusual for the peak of the wet season. The lack of a strong flow out to sea has changed the river mouth quite dramatically and left us with a unfavourable formation of really big shallow sandbars along with warm water along the coast.
None the less, we changed our strategy accordingly and still managed to land some really nice fish off the boat. Tarpon, giant african threadfin, cubera snapper to name just a few. Andy Hales got destroyed by a really large tarpon on the third evening that left him with a really hot and completely empty spool. BUT he managed to turn the tables however and landed a very nice poon later that same evening
