Mark Quirk broke his own record of a 40lb tope caught off the beach on the Isle of Man. This one 67lb, weighed & was released on the beach.



Mark Quirk & his 67lb Manx shore record tope

Incidentally there have been at least two other tope over 40lb in the last two weeks, one 43lb & one 48lb & many more 30lb plus

The Charter anglers I know can only dream about catching Tope that big.....But to catch one from the shore is a big achievement.

Well done that man !

Tim

Around the 19th August the 67lber was caught. Another one 48lb was caught on the 3rd September I've seen pictures of the other 40lbers & lots in the mid to high 30lbs too.

Sorry they weren't caught on lures guys but I thought it was worth posting about.

Guys

Caught regularly from a fair old stretch of our beaches from mid May to the end of September / early October.
