hmm what about having a trolling line of maybe 300 hooks....ive seen this small business do it from a dhingy before...but im not sure what kind of license the guy had? he seemed to have just been going after random fish. Does anyone still do this these days? whats the catch like for 300 hooks on a line thats designed not to tangle?

How about designing a giant net that you can pull behind your sailboat. Tow it to shore...
better yet, tow it straight to the fish house....dump the "catch" in their weigh bin, collect
your $500.00 check, and goof off for the next two days. That way, you're not really
fishing, you just happen to have a net behind you. Probably don't need any license at all
for that.

OR...you could use dynamite sticks. You could keep more of them on the sailboat and lots of the
fish would already be "cleaned" so they'd bring more, I'd imagine.

tommays will become famous soon enough
There is all kind of fishing for a living on Long Island and i cant think of anybody from the big 100 person charter-boat down to the hardcore guy raking clams all winter that is not just shy of starving to death right now

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

On our commercial salmon troller we pulled 6 lines down (similar to having 6 downriggers) with 6 to 8 drops (lures or baits) per line making about 40 lines to tend and try to keep from tangling. Can't imagine what 300 lines would be like? A disaster, I think?

DR,

Can't help it, things are slow and I couldn't get another Rocna thread started. Have to give "Business" some credit, he is always thinking.
