The Seychelles ... the name conjures visions of idyllic islets amidst perfect white-sand beaches and turquoise lagoons. And a recent visit proved it’s all that — and, for sport fishermen, much more. In a distance of no more than two miles we caught bonefish on pristine flats and sailfish on poppers in blue water. This gallery offers some idea of the fishing we found around Desroches Island. Watch for the feature in the March issue of Sport Fishing magazine to see more great photos and get a better idea of what this fishery is like.
We caught lots of green jobfish like this one, a fast-swimming and hard-fighting member of the snapper family. George Large, general manager of Yo-Zuri America (left) caught this bad boy on a popper from an anchored mothership before breakfast. Capt. Brad Simpson holds it for the photo.
