A second report this week from Kit Dunne of Wicklow Boat Charters – this time targeting tope, huss and ray. Kit has been making the most of the fine weather and the fishing has been excellent for him and his anglers.

It was Alan Buchannon’s crew on board this time and the anglers were kept busy inshore and offshore with plenty of the target species recorded, including a fine specimen tope which came in at 161cm long / 58cm girth, though a modest weight at 42lb.

It was a typical day targeting the big ones, on an inshore mark where more than 20 tope are regularly recorded among the huss, ray, hounds and gurnard. Kit reckons the odd mackerel were showing but not enough to get excited about.

Go fishing…
