July 21st, 2016 | by

Kit Dunne of Wicklow Boat Charters gives a round up of the last week of fishing at Wicklow where everything is biting!


Thornback ray

12 July: What a week, My Newcastle guys hit Wicklow hard, hounds n ray, met Finbar Furey, Kieran shaved his head for charity and tope come hard and fast today.


A dozen tope were caught on Wednesday last week

13 July: Not a bad day’s work. We had 12 tope landed, biggest 156cm, heaviest 38-39lb. Plus plenty of hounds, specimens and to go with the Huss and Ray. Catching 2 dozen mackerel at the start of the day made it all possible.
