True, or you could use off-shore tackle crimps for the mono-to-cleat loop.
The bungee just helps you keep from ripping it's lip off when you drag the poor guy for 5 miles, unaware that there's a fish on your rig...

Does catching a submarine count as a big fish?

July 12, 1989
THE WASHINGTON POST

U.S. Subs Had 42 Collisions Since 1983
Commercial Boats Dragged In 5 Reported Incidents


....At least 14 times, the submarines struck tugboats or fishing boats or their nets, anchors or towing cables.

In five incidents, including the Barcona sinking, commercial boats were dragged backward before crews either cut lines free or the lines snapped.

The Navy also released details of 13 collisions involving "objects." For example, U.S. subs collided twice with piers, twice with debris and twice with mooring buoys.

Regarding the Barcona incident 10 miles off Long Beach, a Navy spokesman said the death of Barcona crewman Brian Belanger, 32, of Norwalk, Calif., is the only casualty from a U.S. submarine collision, "as far as we know."

Studies by private organizations, however, allege that others have died in crashes involving subs of other nations.

We had a submarine surface near us in Long Island sound when I was a kid. From memory, I would tell you that you could reach out and touch it. I will bet it was actually half mile away. I always wondered if they knew we were there.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.

M-
The old annual "Number One" edition of the Local Notice to mariners for District1 always used to carry information about submarine surfacing signals and operations because the subs WERE out there. In and out of Groton and other locations, routinely. And there's an old WW2 era "submarine channel" that used to be marked on the charts for Shelter Island, apparently they were expected to use that as a hiding hole. And a submarine refueling station...marked just north of Fort Pond or someplace on the LI south fork that I recall.

Considering the size that subs have grown to, if you see a sudden cloud of smoke on the water, bugging out first and asking questions later would still seem like a good policy. To horribly mangle a quote from Chairman Mao, "Green smoke, orange smoke, all same, BUG OUTTA THERE."

I don't see "submarine channel" but I do see a long swath marked "hydrophones" on a recent 13205 now.

El dorado

I always had good luck casting foreward off the bow letting the line sink as I sail slowly over it. Small white rag on the hook and smallest ball lead for sinker. When the wind is very light mid ocean the fish follow the boats shadow.
