You never have problems with not banding the claws?

Is that a wolf fish?

Nice catch. Makes me hungry.

Unfortunately, Dungeness Crab season doesn't open until November, and we don't have lobster this far north.

Looks like a dogfish to me. I must admit I don't like to see these being caught, as they are dwindling. But I'm not the sort to preach - each to their own! I do like to come back up with a lobster or two when I go diving though!!

Good catch!

Thats very true at one time you were pulling doggies up for fun.

I once saw a photo of tens of dogfish just cast aside on the beach after a fishing comp in N.Wales. Disgusting

They only really exist at a couple of areas where I set, and are plentiful.. not changing in habit or numbers since I was a boy (wiznae yesterday) they get caught in the pot mesh, and drown due to lack of gill flow ... what I am hoping for, as a side line, is a conger eel .. but, I prefer setting in conditions that get a higher hit rate, with patches of sand here, which doesent really favour congers, they prefer rocky overhangs and shelves, where they can hide.

I keep crabs and lobsters apart for that reason ... mostly the lobsters are quite passive once landed .. and sit together fairly well..... crabs are more... crabby they always retreat to the corner of any box you put them in as they dont like company
