Fishing Sherbro Island, Sierra Leone

30 pound test line-class record, 283 pounds, 4 ounces

Sherbro Island, Sierra Leone

Sherbro Island off Sierra Leone is prime trophy Tarpon water. At right is a photo of Yvon Victor Sebag's record catch of 16 April, 1991. It still stands as a 30 pound test line-class record but a bigger fish was caught in 2003 by Max Domecq off Rubane, Guinee Bissau

"The Tarpon season there is from January to May. Record fish have been caught with live bait in the estuary, but there is also the possibility of fly fishing in the tarpon breeding grounds. Other fishing (trolling for barracuda, grouper, jack, etc) is available all the year round. Very little fishing has taken place in the estuary during the past decade." Extract in quotes taken from
