Tope are showing out of Ilfracombe with these two fine specimens boated on Wild Frontier during calm conditions.
Small Boat owners have been enjoying some great sport whilst taking advantage of calm seas and blue skies. Combe Martin SAC Members have landed tope, huss, pollock and bass.
If you want to sample some of the excellent sport to be enjoyed off North Devon’s Coast line book a trip on one of the Seaside towns charter boats.
Wild Frontier had a couple of 8 hour trips earlier this week that have been challenging at times. Managed to pluck out a few different species such as dogfish, bass, pollock, conger, huss, spotted ray, small eyed ray and this beauty of a smoothie at the end of today, just shy of 18lb on the scales.
Back out on the hunt for tope tomorrow evening and Thursday.

Boat anglers are enjoying an upturn in sport off Ilfracombe with the arrival of mackerel an encouraging sign. Anglers aboard Wild Frontier caught plenty of mackerel, pollock and scad whilst feathering off the coast. Bull Huss provided sport at anchor and an octopus made its getaway at the side of the boat. The next few weeks should see good numbers of hard fighting tope move inshore following the mackerel shoals. Images courtesy of Jack Phillips.
