    No. Because it means that atleast one part of the eco-system is still strong which would provide a building block to strengthen others.

    If you get rid of the doggies I highly doubt a more desirable specie would take their place. So instead of catching doggies you would be catching nothing.

    The current fish population is currently being limited due to overfishing not due to lack of food.

    I highly suspect that large sharks would grealy enjoy feasting on the doggies, and the baby doggies would provide food for smaller fish.

    Went for a bit of a night fish at Dorie on Thursday night, pig of a sea big pounding waves and a viscious undertow. 2 sizeable doggies and a hookup with something fairly hefty that managed to chew through 60lb steel trace after being on the line for about 1/2 an hour.
    The undertow was so strong it was flattening 60lb mono shock leader lost a few sinkers and rigs.
    Will definitely have another crack down there maybe after a couple of nor west days when the seas a bit flatter.

    Hi all. Im looking to head down the pier about 10pm saturday night if the weather is ok with a bit of crab and see if any Rig are coming in. Be good to meet up with you local guys if any are keen for a late night fish. High tide is about 1am Sunday.

    Had my 1st surfcasting trip for the new season last Sunday (Waianakarua), managed to christen my new surfcaster with about 5 dogfish & one small greyboy! might be a bit early yet but a nice way to spend an evening all the same. I am heading to the Whataroa (south of Hokitika) later this month, anyone here fished the surf over there?, would it be possible to catch a snapper??

    ahhhhh it may be possible to catch snapper although i think it may still be far to cold for them down that far

    Thats the reason I never really fished anywhere over winter apart from a couple trips down to Timaru and one trip up to the Pier.
