Rob Millard reports on a good weekend’s fishing on the east coast:
Fishing from my own boat ‘Chali Tuna’ out of Greystones, Co Wicklow at the weekend, my first tope was a 162cm female weighing 52lbs, and rounded off the weekend with a 170cm Female which tipped the scales at 64lbs. Both fish were caught on a 6-12lbs class Daiwa Kenzaki rod loaded with 20lbs braid. Mackerel are pretty thick on the ground, so little time was wasted getting bait. I hope to see some more big girls over the next few weeks.
