Evan McGovern reports on a charter fishing trip with Kit Dunne out of Wicklow…
We travelled to Wicklow in the early hours of Saturday to meet “shore&boat” Facebook group members from Cork, Dublin, Belfast and Scotland. We were fishing onboard the Castle Maiden, skippered by Kit Dunne.
We started the day fishing for smoothhounds and everyone had fish to 5lbs.
We moved mark and anchored up again targeting tope. We had about 30 tope to the boat. We were kept busy and again, everyone had fish. About ten of the fish were in the 20 to 25lbs range
There was a nice bonus Huss and a big tub gurnard as well. Great day out and well worth the journey.
