A 22lb spurdog
George Lockhart, right, from Kent, caught and released a superb 22lb spurdog while fishing on the charter boat Peganina, skippered by Anthony Hills, out of Rye, Kent.
The British boat record stands at 25lb 4oz. Three other spurs of 19lb, 15lb and 14lb were caught on the same trip, the 19-pounder being caught by Ian Hewitt, far right.
In Wales, Steph Truswell, left, of Wrexham, caught a 16lb 14oz spurdog on a mackerel head on a running leger. She was on a charter trip aboard Gethyn Owen’s My Way II, out of Holyhead.
