Tope and dogfish
Well I say dogfish but the're not really, bull huss are normally on rough ground and are caught by accident while conger fishing. Smoothounds are a great sporting fish to catch and are very common in the summer months. Spurdogs can be found in very large packs in the early spring, they live offshore on all types of ground as the spurs move off the tope follow behind and stay most of the summer, sometimes staying as late as November. Tope are another great sporting fish and can often be found in very large numbers just off shore. No tope, smoothhound or bulls are ever killed on Piscary, spurdogs however are very good eating, but all females in pup must also be returned.

Tope Bullhuss and Spurdogs can all be caught in a similar way, a running ledger with a 3/4 foot trace minimum of 150lb mono 3/0 to 8/0 heavyish hook but they will come up off the bottom so a heavy paternoster rig can also work particularly for Spurs, luminous muppets can help and fish baits seem to be best but Squid and Cuttlefish can work.
