Back in July 2013 no one knew that this day would produce one of the worlds registered recorded bit off Angling history that can not be taken away from the celtic deeps or Andy Griffith.
Catching whopping 9 blues 1 porbeagle and the ultimate
shark a mako the lads realised that they made history with a Short fin mako of 194.04lb.
A porbeagle shark of 119.7lb and a blue shark of120.4 lb. Three sharks in less than eight hours on a single trip all over 100lb leaving
a Welsh port and returned to the same port with out a stop at any other port. They then must have the sufficiant evidence for the IGFA COMMITTEE to approve it this takes as you can tell a long time. But credit where credit is due the wait i think was worth
it for Andy Griffith and for the skipper Andrew Alsop. A huge well done lads... Check out total sea fishing magazine this month where Andy Griffith is of on his adventures again catching a four figure in weight six gill shark.. But Andy told me
that his next goal has got to be a dover sole of the shore local over 2lb. Well i think he needs to scale down abit on his tackle for that.
This has truly put wales on the map for local game fishing
and im sure many people may claim around the world that they have done this but no body has registered it. Good luck Andy Griffith in you new ventures.. ALL SHARKS WERE CAUGHT ON ROD AND LINE AND SAFELY RELEASED.
