Photo: This specimen spurdog of 17lb wins Catch of the Week for Des Young
Des Young took a fine specimen spurdog of 17lbs whilst out with Terry Jackson aboard his boat “Aries”. Des’ spurdog took a mackerel flapper on a size 8/0 WSB uptide hook, Penn Evo Waveblaster rod and Penn Fathom reel, in 450 ft of water. This lovely spurdog wins Des Catch of the Week. It was part of a catch of 61 spurdogs, 13 of which were over specimen size and a 112 lb common skate. Sid Kennedy and his son Derek joined them on the trip, all catching specimens, including three specimen cuckoo wrasse.
