Fishing Expedition to St Brandon
The Saint Brandon atoll consists of over 50 small islands, endless sand flats, reef sections, and coral atolls where Bonefish, Indo Pacific Permit, Giant Trevally, and Bluefin Trevally, are in abundance.
For both fly and conventional anglers, Saint Brandon is a true Bonefish mecca with vast white sand flats, perfect for big schools of Bonefish to sneak up on and feed on crabs, shrimps and other crustaceans.
Due to the shallow and clear water, fish are easy to spot and if you miss a shot you can be rest assured there will be plenty more to come. Unlike many other Bonefish destinations where the flats are normally soft and muddy, Saint Brandon consists of firm sand and reef flats, perfect for wading.
Several species of Trevally also frequently visit the shallow flats and reef sections offering you a chance to cast your popper or stickbait direct into the line of fire. St Brandon is notoriously known to hold larger than the average GT right on these flats. When it comes to trophy size GT on the flats, St Brandon will not disappoint.
If you fancy some jigging and insane popping in the deeper drop off and pinnacles further away from the atoll then our world class guides will put you on the spot in no time. All you need to do is HOLD ON TIGHT!!!
ONLY 200 Permits delivered by the authorities for foreigners yearly.
Due to these waters being very much untouched, they hold some true MONSTERS!! Make sure you bring those back up spools.
To top it all off, a bucket full of crayfish for the BBQ is a must do to wrap up the day and share some good laughs and the talk about the one that got away.
But one thing for sure… When you wake up the next morning, St Brandon will be WAITING!
