zombie dog fish

Post by kev37 » Sat Feb 25, 2012 9:22 pm

this may sound crazzy and impossible but how long can a dog fish survive out off water. i went fishing last night with two of my brothers and we got two dog fish to keep after 7 hours we took it home to cleen and fillit them thay were still moving and brithing im sure thats not normall no other fish last that long.

the longest i av managed to keep them alive in freshly changed sea water in a bucket is about 2 hours. you sure it werent just nerves. several fish appear alive but its just nerves. admittedly some fish can be kept alive for hours like eels and flounders in sea water but i av never heard of doggies staying alive that long. you may be right but thats just my oppinion

Don't mean to cause offence but if I am going to keep a fish I kill it on the beach to put it out of it's misery. Best done by clubbing or spiking the head.

Any dogies that I keep get swung down onto the wall or beach holding the tail, normally does the trick. I have had a couple that even after the head bang, gutting and skinning still moved!. The shout from a friend was Marks got another doggie after hearing the thud. It does take a lot to kill them quickly.

I'm with you on that eccles been to alot of venues mainly peirs and marina walls and seen people throwing mackeral on the deck to die slow just because the fish are shoaling.Those doggies do take a firm swipe to dispatch them.

I thought all Good Anglers carried a priest and that it was part of an angles basic equipment.
As Daz said the number of so called anglers that catch fish not only from the boat but also from the shore and piers who just throw their catch into a bucket to suffocate out of water beggars belief.
Yep doggies do take some dispatching. I always release mine as I don't think that it's a fish worthwhile for the table but some folk do like them deep fried in batter (Rock Salmon)
Cheers

Doggies are best caught on a long LEAD-er, using an Abu CARDINAL reel although as already stated a PRIEST does come in handy LOL :D :D >:) >:) >:) >:)
