Okay, I have run 77 charters so far this year and probably caught 2000 dogfish.
Day before yesterday I couldn't take it anymore, so I killed one as part of my two shark annual bag limit. I gutted it and put it on ice. I removed the back bone at the dock and removed the skin. The fillets looked preaty nasty. I soaked them in whole milk for the night and had my wife batter dip and deep fry the little SOB.
To my surprise, the **** dogfish tasted good. I think if you mixed rockfish, lingcod and dogfish together into a fish fry, the dogfish would win in the taste department. the texture was like a cross between a small halibut and a blackcod. nice flavor and oh is it satisfying eating one of them!
Show no mercy guys, the gloves are off! catch um, kill um and eat um.
Limit one per day, two per year......
Good luck at the derby!
