Tope aboard My Way

Whilst the wind blows 50mph+ outside today, its hard not to get disheartened with the constant barrage of bad weather. However sifting through photographs today from this years fishing, you quickly remember the many great days we had afloat.   Our tope fishing kicked off in April this year, when fishing for spurdogs and local rod Iwan pictured above, was fortunate to land three 25lb+ tope during the session.

A Fine Friday Fishing

Tope from Holyhead Deeps

Most of the charter fleet off the north Wales coast benefit from a fairly consistent run of big tope. Holyhead is no exception, with the current Welsh record for a boat caught tope, 79lb, being caught and then released aboard My Way in August 2005 by Nottingham angler Anthony Meli. These big fish tend to move inshore late July through to October. Above, Antony Meli and his Welsh Record C&R tope It is though firmly believed though that there have been even bigger fish hooked over the years that have proved far too powerful for the anglers to keep hold […]
