WICKLOW BOAT CHARTERS ON THE SPECIMEN SPURDOGS.
Skipper Kit Dunne reports on a great start to his 2019 season with a great session on the spurdogs.
With a break in the weather we set out after Spurdog on Thursday – with short notice and a working day we only had 3 anglers so I planned to fish myself. The weather was calm, with a foggy start to the day. Radar on, we watched for ships as they passed by.
Then with anchor set and baits down it wasn’t long before we had a fish, a bull huss came for Dan Smith, followed by a fine bite, a struggle, then along came a Spurdog of 17.4lb, 116cm long, which makes our Catch of the Week
What a start we thought, and it was only the start, it was followed by 2 specimen spurs for myself. By midday we had 11 spurdog, 3 of specimen size and a couple of huss.
As the tide eased even more things got better and better, Dan and I clocked up a few more specimens each, while Ken Garry and Peter McKeon made their mark with a few spurs including a specimen each.
We tallied up on the way in while we shook out our sore arms, 35+ Spurdog, 15+ Specimens and a few BullHuss, what a day !! Well worth the effort
