went down the pier on thursday night with a mate, had 13 doggies altogether and lost a nice fish of the end with whole squid, at about 3.40 am.
massive bite though wasnt impressed when the line went slack after a load of tugging and pumping(how wrong does that sound lol) any ideas anyone?, the fish was going absolutely berserk.
also took the new prawn trap down , which impressively caught me a nice sized lobster and 8 prawns which i had for brekkie on friday :) very nice.
took 4 of the doggies to actually try them and what can i say , if you cook them right they taste pretty good imho with chips and salad:)
cheers

It happens to the best of us. mate. Gotta sleep sometimes. :)

Nice report. Useful post, actually.

Was saying to the Pauls just yesterday that we're lucky with doggies up here — rarely a real scourge, often just a few a night breaks the monotony and 2lb+ are common.

And I's gonna get me one o they nets ... I'd pay 4 quid for the one lobster alone!
I don't take many fish :)unsure: though I am under 'pressure from above' to put something on the table, and soon, if I want my generous fishing-time allowance to continue ...) but a lobster wouldn't stand a chance, however hard he thought he looked!

Maybe the next gut-hooked doggie I get will go in the pot ... cheers for the boiling tip!

my dad likes dogfish and conger :yucky: i found the easiest way to prep a doggie is to simply bour boiling water from a kettle over them, holding the tail, the skin then just melts off leaving the flesh, then just wrap it in foil with a bit of lemon juice :)

Nice report!

Hopefully some fish will still be around when I come down next week!.....

Out of interest, what bait did you use in you traps?

Thanks,
