or a conger - they eat doggies (though perhaps only dead ones - I don't know if they can often catch live ones)


Are you going to try a fillet of doggie (with or without skin) off there ?
Or do you think it wouldn't work if it were not live bait ?

A friend of mine caught a spurdog many years ago from a pier (night fishing), and soon after hooking it - he had a much harder job on his hands.

When he eventually got the fish to surface, we saw the hooked spurdog, with an enormous conger hanging onto it. When our headlamps focussed on the conger, it bit through the spurdog and disappeared.

It was a huge conger (well from the shore anyway) and we estimated that it must have been close to if not as big as the british record.

Spurdog was estimated to be 6-8lb before the conger chomped it.

This was at a very deepwater mark at Lochaline on the west coast of Scotland.
