There seems to be plenty of tope in the Wicklow area judging by the reports from Kit Dunne of Wicklow Boat Charters. The O’Brien clan had numerous tope, including two to specimen size on their recent trip with Kit. There were plenty of hounds around too when they went for them and they also came across a decent thornback.

There was plenty of good fishing the previous week too, including this super specimen-sized tope measuring 165cm Length X 69cm girth for Gary Walsh.
