I caught a Ray once and brought the wings back home for skinning. I layed them out on the table and my Sister decided to touch one of these wings in the middle. She had the shock of her life! The wing tips rolled upwards as if to grab her hand she ran off screaming.

I never had any interuptions whilst filleting my fish again

As for 'scad' I googled it ..and it doesnt look quite the same, close but not quite, unless the google pics were bad uns, but what we refer to as Horse are just huge Mackerel 18 " in length with exactly the same markings but fainter in colour.... just curious as I havnt seen them in years
I think there all sorts of species of fish that whilst called the same, look different. Whilst I was looking at a program about Sharks the other day, they made reference to Doggies and Smoothhounds, neither which I would call a shark. They are related of course.

all cartilaginous fish (no proper bones) with no swim bladder. Those spiny ones are "spurdogs" which are landed commercially in huge numbers. Just gotta watch when tope (small sharks) fishing when you go to get hold of it to lift onboard by the dorsal fin and the wrist of the tail that it ain't a spurdog, which looks similar, cos it'll give a nasty wound if it is. Lack of a swim bladder means that lesser spotted dogfish, the normal dogs that are pain when fishing for proper fish, just lay about on the seabed. When diving you can pick them up, give em a bit of a shake, let go and they swim off for a few feet and then just flop onto he bottom again. Unless it is picked up by my ex dive buddy of course, who sticks them in the bag minus head. I like rays to eat but they do have the unfortunate mechanism of passing urine thru the skin-so occasionaly they dont taste too good.

I always put my wings in the fridge for a couple of days to let the amonia drain out before I freeze or eat them.

I rather like eating dogfish-the spine can be pulled out once skinned and cooked so no mothful of tiny sharp bones. Quite tasty too.


I bought a hot smoker a few weeks ago. Pollock are immensely improved by brining/smoking them with alder chips.
