Has been a couple off Steetly recently but as Hart says its hardly worth targetting them around Hartlepool. Ive never seen one caught in 5 years from the shore.

Forget catching them over here ive had 4 in about 20 odd years! All came from cullernose and craster areas whilst fishing for codlings in October/November on crab.

Travel west
Foxes snout over kirkudbright (Ross bay), manxman, mull etc

If you cant catch them there then give up!!!

My dad had one of the stagings at Steetly last year and in the same week another lad had one off the end. if you want loads of doggies visit south west Scotland. Around the Mull of Galloway they are in plague proportions in summer. Off the flat rock you can easily catch double shots of them on sandeels and macky strip throughout the tide. To be honest over there they are a pest more than anything. To catch one over here is a rare thing though, and i have only heard of a few come from our area. On the other hand i think we will steadily see more of them over here. The thornies at Horden are a species which is quite rare, and the turbot and brill caught off Hartlepool are also quite rare in our patch. All i can say is that they are more of a rareity than the norm, however if you fish with fish baits you will increase your chances of hooking one. A good bait to try is a whole sandeel, they catch the bass over here to aswell.

a couple of hours driving and 2 hours fishing on the west coast will give you more doggies than you will get in a lifetime fishing the north east coast.

on the west coast you can get them 2 a cast. over here you could get 2 a year fihing every day.

in 35 years fishing twice a week i havnt caught one here. but had thousands on the west coast.
