Kit Dunne of Wicklow Boat Charters hosted a pair of up and coming young anglers to some great fishing for tope in recent days.

The junior crew of Tadgh and Órán, accompanied by their dads, managed to land the two biggest tope of the five caught for the evening’s fishing.

The fish, one of an estimated 45lb and the other 156cm long, were both of specimen size and it was a case of the youngsters really showing the old fellas how it’s done!

Blue skies and calm seas, along with the super tope that were landed, made for a great evening’s fishing for all.

Go fishing…
