Kit Dunne reports from a busy week in Wicklow:

Tope frenzy for Wicklow Boat Charters

Tope on overdrive in Wicklow this week  – more than 20 in 2 hours on Tuesday aboard Lisin, well done to you all. Plus another 38lb Sunday for Brendy Adams while Ricky pulled a fine 16.5lb Hound out of the bag. And there’s more 🐟🐟🐟🐟

That’s 50 specimens and counting for Nicky McEvoy…….

There was a big day on Saturday for the boat, Nicky McEvoy had his 50th Specimen Fish with a Tope, that’s Specimen Tope 2 days in a row! Tom Lynch also had his 50th specimen recently with his Smooth Hound and Robbie done the business with his 2 specimen Hounds and a Tope of 38lb. Eamonn Power landed a cool 9lb and 10lb smooth hound just for the record.

On Friday there were tope for everyone, including a 42lber for Gary Blake and a little bonus for the skipper on a Spur rig. Lots of fine Huss, including a 14lb for Liam Markey and a Tope – Huss double for Ronan Doherty. All in all a great week, Month even with record numbers and sizes of fish. Still focusing on the Bream and Shark shortly.
