mostly try it for thornback ray and huss but i am sure it would take tope. it has its day. smaller species should take it but i haven't given it a fair trial for them yet. it should work as a sight bait in clear water as it really catches the light.

Thanks! Lots of this fish here in Sligo atm brilliant to catch them on lure. Must stock some for winter fishing.

they are cool to catch. they should work well for whiting through the autumn/winter.
