Kit Dunne of Wicklow Boat Charters had a couple of Dutch angling journalists onboard during the week and he showed them some of the quality fishing that’s available on Ireland’s east coast. Bram and Bert had a mix of ground fishing and a trip to the wrecks and they had a total of 14 species for the week, including Tub Gurnard, Conger, Tope, Black Bream and Pollack just shy of 10lbs. The lads were impressed with the quality of the fishing and will no doubt spread the news when they return to the Netherlands.

It wasn’t only the Dutch that enjoyed good fishing with Kit as some Irish lads got in on the action too, including Niall Burke who landed this beaut of a specimen tope measuring 158cm.
