if it was 6 foot long i,d guess it was a tope ,unlike hounds tope have razor sharp teeth so try not to go swimming with one again or you will be getting plenty of adrenaline off a doctor :lol:

Cheers for the tips here! Lot of info!! What months do they arrive and depart roughly?! Sounds like a serious fish to land!! Is it just the east and south east coasts they are found?

Great information on this thread!
On most of the venues I fish, rag, squid and live hardbacks, I usually drop a net or homemade trap over pier with a whole fresh whiting, with its belly open. If you can't get one where you fish, you can pick one up ftom a mongers for about a euro whole. All it takes is an hour, and because the crabs are feeding they are very animated. No matter what baits I have with me, I always get some live ones where I'm at. Live hardback always fish well as do good quality fresh ragworm, I think it's the movement of those livebaits that makes them fish well. And when using live hardbacks I find the hounds will hit the bait once or twice before hooking.

This is an old thread but I still find the first post really helpful. I just hope that this forum is still active just like before.
