Kit Dunne of Wicklow Boat Charters had a bit of a blowout of a week, as he had to cancel 5 groups due to bad weather. Frustrating as that is, he did manage to fit in a couple of days, and when the weather obliged that fishing was top-notch.

He managed one day on the wrecks where a group new to wrecking got off to a flying start with plenty of pollock around the 5lb mark, and one lunker just shy of 10lb.

He also put in a day on the hunt for Tope, and that turned out quite well too, with plenty of fish of a decent stamp, including one to specimen size.
