I know some Dutch guys got some blue shark on the fly with John Brittain a few years back. They teased them 1st with bits on Mackeral tied on a string. Kept pulling them away just as they went to bite them and then tossed them a blue and white fly. Not sure how you'd do that with Tope though. I rarely see them feeding near the surface. When I do though, they're always hungry.
