Rigging up for spurdog

| June 11, 2010

Of all the species of shark regularly encountered around the UK, the Spurdog (Squalas Acanthias) is one of the easiest to identify, namely due to the large spines which protrude in front of both dorsal fins

Spurdog are generally slate gray or dark brown on their back which fades to a white belly; they also have distinctive green eyes and scissor like teeth.

Whilst Spurdog may look big and tough creatures they are actually quite delicate especially when out of the water. Losing a fish because of an inappropriate trace increases the likelihood of fish mortality due to trailing line.

To help minimize that possibility, Les McBride has put together a step by step process for creating a suitable rig for catching spurdog on the SSTP site.
