Default dogfish

Do any of you guys eat them? If so what do you do on the boat to prepare them and how do you cook them?

While not the stereotypical squeamish type with regard to seafood, there just seems so many better options for what to put on the plate. I'll take cleaning a cooler full of searobins over dogfish any day.

Since all the good eating fish are either closed to fishing or very restricted, maybe we should start the first annual Dogfish Tournament. First prize will be a neckless made from those nasty spikes on there tails.

Redfish and Pollock are much better table fare then dogfish and neither are overly regulated.

I might just sign up though I only caught a couple last year.
Found the site. There is some talk on the fishing forums about it.

At the very least, gut 'em & get 'em on ice.

We're going to give them a try this season - and now there's no chance I'll find a single one.

I don't think this works with doggies.

Man, why excluding NJ? A lot of time that Sea Robin were the only thing we caught at the over-fished reefs here..

Well there seems to be a growing market for dogfish since we know that all the cod are "gone"...yea right.. Anyhow, up in maine I have read about Korean-style dogfish tacos. Even on the cape at seafood expos vendors are pushing doggies as a viable/sustainable resource...I would personally not keep any but if Gordon ramsay prepared some for me I would give it a go. Besides, if the crew of the Northwestern can bite the heads off microwaved herring.........need I say more?!?!

They’re passable whitefish at best. Cap them soon as they come over the rail, gut and ice them. I’ve never bothered to skin and brine them at sea but it’s supposed to help. Watch the barb though. It’s a bitch if you snag yourself. Bring vice grips and yank it.

The dogfish is typical of the seafood swap. "The majority of the seafood we catch in our U.S. fisheries doesn't stay here. And while we export most of what is caught off U.S. shores, what do Americans eat? Imported fish.

If you watch Elias V’s YouTube video, it shows you how to prepare it. Did it the same way and I wouldn’t shy away from keeping them again. If I’m out for meat and will be filleting fish anyway, I’ll certainly keep a smaller doggie to lop up. The folks I cooked it up with said the same thing.. definitely edible when dispatched and filleted right. What’s the real downside in trying it once for yourself? Nada.
