Firstly Fished The Knap Yesterday 3 Up - No Bites At First, Then The Doggies Came, I Had 5 And My Mate Had 2 - Quite Good Fishing - Good Weather - Had Rag And Macky.

Second Of All -

Whoever Is Fishing Down The Knap And Catching Dogfish, Killing Them Or Leaving Them To Die Outside Of The Water - F**king Stop It

There Is No Need For Killing The Fish If You Have No Use For It

I Found About 7 Dead Dogfish Yesterday At The Knap

I Was Not Impressed

I would like to give the benefit of doubt to anglers and say that dogfish do have a tendancy to swim back towards the shore after being released.

We fished the Knap on Tuesday and found 3 dogfish at different stages of the night washed back on shore that we had probably caught and released. We did however make sure that they went back unharmed.

I hope this is the case for the fish that you found, as i agree that it would be totally unacceptable to kill any fish deliberately. :mad:

There is too little fish around our coast at present due to commercial fishing boats and we as anglers have a responsibility to ensure the fish stocks for future generations.

They may only be dogfish in the eyes of some anglers, but if the dogfish numbers disappear there will be a hell of a lot blank sessions in the future!

I had the same problem with doggies down monknash the other night. I caught one and released it only for it to wash up on my foot about 10 mins later. frightened the life out of me in the dark.
It happened a few times with one doggie washing back up twice.
