    Hmmm...I can picture myself. Go out. Catch dogfish. Kill it, cut'em up and throw the meat on ice. Cut up internal lining and then fish for flounder. Repeat as needed.

    Got to figure out the best and safest way to kill dogfish while in the yak. Sheesh, I got to bring a big cutting board too.

    its not that bad. dogfish dont have regular shark teeth just crushers. make sure to look at its eyes, if the pupils are cat-like its a dogfish and safe to put your fingers near the mouth if they are round keep hands away even a small 2-3' shark can make a hell of a nasty bite

    almost made that mistake with this little guy till i saw its little razor sharp teeth see the pupal is round

    I remember this post from another forum with great directions on preparing any shark you catch. Really good step-by-step I'd have to imagine dogfish would be the same.

    Small inshore sharks that have teeth are usually the young of larger sharks like the Silky, Sandbar, Dusky, Night, Bull or Lemon sharks- sharpnose and blacktip (spinner) sharks are small sharks and don't get big- all are edible so it does not make a difference- spiny dogfish and smooth dogfish do not have teeth.

    Good find. Now I'm about ready for some Spring/Summer shark fishing.

    In Oregon, if we were going to keep any of the "edible" sharks we always bled them to death to avoid the urea issue. Not a Kayak friendly handling procedure, but we smoked a lot of shark over the years

    yeah they are so bad i stopped doing the delaware surf tourneys in the spring. much rather catch a dogfish than a frickin skate!

    the only good shark to eat is a mako. they dont urinate through their skin

    +1 One of the best fighters in the sea as well. Ever see a 250lber freight training drag and doing flips. Incredible!

    I picked one at random:

    I have caught several Makos and they are fine table fare, (taste exactly like swordfish) but don't over look a blacktip (Spinner shark)- terrific fighting fish on light tackle and very tasty on the grill, too- They get to about 40 pounds while mako's max out over 1000 pounds- Mako is an offshore fish while blacktips can be caught from the beach- especially live bait fishing for Kings and cobia- I always keep a blacktip- I never throw it back- yummm...
