A group of tourist anglers finished off their week’s fishing with Kit Dunne of Wicklow Boat Charters and added a specimen Corkwing Wrasse to the specimen sized 11lb pollock from earlier in the week. They spent a day on a species competition which produced 14 species in total and a day on the wrecks which threw up Pollock, Pouting, Huss and a Black Bream. They departed back to mainland Europe delighted with their week’s fishing and looking forward to next year already…

Then it was over to Irish anglers for the rest of the week where Tope came to the fore. Dan Finlay managed a fine 52lb Tope from Wicklow, while John O’Brien managed a 158cm Tope fishing out of Kilmore Quay.

Kit will be targeting more Big Tope, Spurdog and Huss this coming month with Wreck fishing on Neap tides. Give him a call if you want more info:
