Dublin angler Tom Walsh had a Bank Holiday Monday to remember this week when fishing with Hamish Currie out of Red Bay. The lucky angler hooked into a huge spurdog which turned out to be a potential record breaker. The fish was weighed at 24lb 6oz  – beating the current record by 10 oz. The current record of 10.6kg (23lb 12oz) was set in 2011 by Albert Kouwenhoven, a Dutch angler fishing out of Red Bay with Hamish Currie. In fact the last 5 times the record was broken was by anglers fishing with Hamish!
