I'd bet CFS does have them or maybe Rose's in Gloucester ?? Don't think it would take much to make one, local welding shop should be able to knock one out. Are ya going doggin' ? Quick thought, drill and tap a block of aluminum for a couple of the skinniest boat trailer rollers you can find ???

Hoping I can dog... So far nobody will buy them. Waiting to see if a market opens up this fall. All the local buyers say they too would love to buy dogs but they have no foreign market to sell too right now.

The supply of dogfish is dependant on the european market. During the summer months many of the business are shut down or on holiday so the demand is not there. The fall months are better and winter the best for demand of dogfish. Expect buyers in new england to begin buying again by mid september.

Good info... Seems like in past years however that the market stayed good all year? I don't know much about it though. This is the first year I planned to fish it hard.... but I'm in the water all winter!

I have still been selling mine while other guys are shut down. It all depends on what country your processerors have contracts with.
