Live lining dogfish

Not sure why I thought of this but I'd be interested in opinions. Do tuna eat dogfish? Has anyone ever tried to live line one? Is it legal? They seem to be the right size, always around, easy to catch. Thought I could put them to use.

In over 60 years fishing for stripers from Nova Scotia to New York, I never did it. Never saw a striper chasing a doggy or heard of anyone livelining them.

Many times, when I lived on Cape Cod we came across acres of basking dogfish in shallow waters with stripers of all sixes swimming among them. Never once saw a bass chase one. Why would they?

I wouldn't wast my time.

I believe the OP was speaking of tuna, Bill. I have several friends who are Chatham tunamen, all doing it for decades. They have told me many times that fish come up filled with dogs, one even found a small seal in a tuna. I doubt it would work, however, because they spin like crazy, I doubt live-lining them would be a great experience.

I've caught them on Stellwagon with Tuna around and never had one picked off by a Tuna but it occurred to me to maybe pull one off the bottom and let him swim around a bit on the way up to the boat. Haven't really tried it in earnest but thought it could work. Maybe throw a big circle hook through the dorsal fin and see what happens

tuna who knows, but they work great for bluedogs. stay semi alive on deck for a 15 mins or longe, eases wear and tear on the livewell pump

they are fun and easy for bluedogs though..gives them a taste of their own medicine.

Now that's something I need to try. Easy enough to catch.
