Here on the west coast of Wales the fishing is very seasonal and consequently it changes throughout the year. One of our favourite times of year is early season through late March and early April. Its the Easter time fishery and it is when the dog sharks (proper name lesser spotted dogfish) patrol the deeper reefs hunting crustaceans. We target them using strips of squid. Its a meal they seem unable to resist and when they are really in the mood some huge catches can occur. Good news for father and son teams as in this picture. Dog sharks can be a reliable catch and a reliable catch is all an 8 year old needs!
