I believe Darryl Ewing, Sligo Fishing Charters, operating from Rosses Point is the man for tope.

Thanks JW

Apparently the Ballina / Killala skippers don't target the Tope any more although one I was out with on Sunday indicated that they are still there - an area he referred to as "the garden" but not ideal for the bigger charter boats, something you could pursue in a day angler or similar...

Also said that there are porbeagle and blues further out on a specific line but that you need the right conditions and good anglers with the right gear. It was not far from the spot where a bunch of us tried to land fish from the shore a few years back, where we got runs but got bitten or sheared off...

So they are still out there, which is nice to know. ;0)
