Kit Dunne reports on some recent trips including a wrecking expedition 22 miles out to sea…

03 August: Wicklow Boat Charters Wreck Fishing and first Specimen Pollock for Jerry Dixon. After checking the Wreck situation last year we set out to investigate in more detail. Yesterday was a special day with Plenty of Pollock to 12lb, Cod to 7lb and a couple of Coalies to the boat, plenty to go round.

Alongside a massive break through I had the chance to meet a very good friend, fellow Charter skipper, Gethyn Owen ( He steamed to the same wreck from the Welsh side). I can’t thank him enough for his help so far. I can say that a bottle of JD goes a very long way,or MyWay. Bottle or not Gethyn gave all the help he could. Roll on the next Wreck Trip from Wicklow.

05 August: Plenty of Club records and PBs broken the weekend with the Belfast Mariners. Irish Specimen tope for Paddy Trainor and we even got loads of mackerel 👀. Great bunch of lads, pity we couldn’t enjoy the social side a bit though.

Go fishing…
