Went deep dropping yesterday. The dogfish were terrible. We fished all over north of the canyon, south of the canyon, 200' deep to over 600' deep. Probably caught several hundred doggies. We hit about a half dozen wrecks... if you didnt catch a dog, you were snagged up on their eggs. We fished over several different types of bottom and places I know there at least used to be tiles and sea bass.... doggies as soon as you drop. We did manage a small catch of sea bass, a couple of tiles, and one 15# wreckfish, but not all all worth it for the amount of dogfish that had to be caught to catch the targetted species. Our ratio was probably over 50:1 on dogfish to tiles/seabass. Even in 600' of water we'd hook up on dogs as soon as the bait hit bottom and several more dogs would follow the hooked fish up- from 600 feet! It was the worst I have ever seen it in the 15 years I have been bottom fishing. I would guess that the dogfish have to be eating all the baitfish and juvenile fish everywhere out there. Something needs to be done with this problem. The government set out to protect these pests a few years back. I have no idea why they would let these things come back like this. They have to be just destroying the populations of groundfish.
