Kit Dunne has been getting some the best tope fishing he has seen years off Wicklow recently…

Specimen Hound for Gary Blake
Specimen 43lb Tope for Nicky McEvoy

21 July: Tope getting bigger. Specimen size 43lb fish for Nicky McEvoy and a specimen smoothhound for Gary Blake. Hard to nail the Tope with no fresh mackerel, 2 yesterday, 3 today, at least its getting a bit better.


24 July: Probably the best tope fishing for years. A lot of mid sized fish and even a few pups.  We were getting up to 50 a day a couple of weeks ago and there are still plenty around, plus the Hounds and Huss. Roll on the Great weather.

Go fishing…
