Sea Angler (UK) - - YOUR FISHING -

The Bri­tish Record Fish Com­mit­tee has rat­i­fied two new records for spur­dogs and added a com­mon skate to its no­table fish list.

New records are: Gary Hil­lon’s 17lb 8oz 8dr shore-caught spur­dog, taken in South Devon, on March 4. It adds 12oz to the 53-year-old shore record; Shane Salmon’s boat-caught spur­dog, weigh­ing 25lb 4oz, caught off Hast­ings, East Sus­sex, on April 9. It adds 15oz to the pre­vi­ous record set in 2013 by Tom Walsh.

Dun­can Paul's shore-caught com­mon skate, es­ti­mated to weigh 188lb, has been added to the No­table Fish List. It was caught from the north coast of Scot­land.
