Weekly update

Tope fishing out of this world for Wicklow Charters

July 10th, 2018 | by

Kit Dunne of Wicklow Boat Charters has all the updates from his recent trips…

One of over 50 tope

Bullhuss, ray and gurnard were also caught, but not in anything like the numbers we found the tope

05 July: We had over 50 tope to about 36lb today. Of these 22 were over a metre and there were 30+ small lads. As well the tope fest, we had a few huss, gurnard and a ray. It was a cracking day with a great group. Even my arms are hangin!!

10 July: Specimen tope and smoothhound coming steady now. We had 2 specimen tope early today and 7 specimen hounds the other day. Not only that but we’ve had 50lb tope and 16lb smoothhound in last week. Tope numbers are at record levels; there’s realistic chance of getting 50+ in a day. Couldn’t be better!

Go fishing…
