To round off quite a successful Fisheries Awareness Week the Top Tackle duo teamed up with the 94th Dublin Walkinstown Scouts for a day’s fishing at Arklow Harbour. The day was a roaring success with every scout and leader all landing at least one fish and a lot more in most cases. We started the day by giving the Scouts and rundown on safety on the water and followed with the ins and outs of setting up rigs.

Unfortunately the weather was not the friendliest for sea fishing on the day with strong northern winds making casting for any angler tough to say the least but that did not dampen the spirit of the Scouts and they persevered to get to rewards.

Small Codling, Pollock and Flounder dominated the catches for most of the day but eventually some Dogfish showed their faces and took the bait which brought a smile to all.
