Kit Dunne had a some more great fishing off the Wicklow coast at the weekend…

OCT 30 Spurs, Huss and Specimen Tope for Darren Maxwell crew. We went out deep for the spurs and bullhuss. It was a fresh sea but the lads stuck at it. They had spurdogs to 8lb and Huss to 10lb but no big ones. We headed inshore then for 2 hours at tope. There was a fine 46lb, 156cm specimen for Ryan Maxwell followed by a 153cm for his Dad, Darren. Great group, great fishing lads, great result.

OCT 29 Great fishing today with a great bunch of lads. A few new ones and a few good old friends. Out deep first for Spur and Huss we managed at least 50 Spur from 1lb to 17.5lb and maybe 5 Huss to 10lb or so. There was a Irish Specimen Spur for John Mcloughlin at 17.5lb in the last minute before a move inshore, a well spotted good bite kept us waiting to haul with the engine running. Niall Burke bagged about 13 Spur and his favourite a fine Huss. He also had a run like a train inshore, which was definitely a big tope that didn’t connect in the end.

All in all a great day with great people.

Specimen Spurdog on Saturday for John Mcloughlin, well deserved indeed. 17.5lb 117cm long
