South Wales shark haul

This 90lb porbeagle certainly justified Andrew Griffith’s 12 hour roundtrip from his home in Canterbury, Kent to Milford Haven in South Wales.

During two days fishing aboard Andrew Alsop’s White Water II he also landed 20 blue sharks with several topping the 100lb barrier.

All of his fish came to a selection of baits including mackerel, pollack, coalfish and whiting floatfished at various depths.

He said: “The prized porbeagle was the first shark to be boated on the second day. It put up one hell of fight and the long journey was worth it for that fish alone. I’ve got another session booked with Andrew in a few weeks and I can’t wait.”
