After a massive run of Big Smooth Hounds Wicklow Boat Charters customers set out to target the Tope in July. With very few fresh mackerel being caught frozen was readily taken by the Pack Tope between 25 and 40lb weight. On one trip having fished 2 marks a total of 12 Tope were caught and released along with a few good BullHuss, a ray and many Grey Gurnards.
The Tope have turned up everywhere, in all the usual marks and a few new marks closer to home, wind hasnt been an issue with sheltered marks producing very well.
One Specimen Tope was taken by German angler Peter, he landed a fine 40lb fish at 163cm long, a length based specimen.
On the species front we managed to bag a few new ones to the list, Conger, Garfish and a Red Mullet for Arthur Goonan bring the total to 34.
