Gary Robinson in an e-mail sent me the following mail and photo

“I had a cracking catch off one of the Wicklow beaches while kayak fishing last night. the fish was unweighed but has to be well beyond specimen size. I write for and I am waiting for them to post the account of the evening live before i send a link with all the details to Myles Kelly. It’d be great if you could consider it for “Catch of the Week”. I think it should be a good contender anyway.”

Gary in a later mail estimated the fish to be over five feet long.

In another mail last night, Gary caught a even bigger tope

These two great fish captured in Kayak and released after quick photos win our Catch of the Week
