What Is Line Caught Fishing?

Line-caught fishing is a method of catching fish where the angler casts a line made of natural fibers or synthetic materials into the water. The line is usually weighted with a lead weight, and then attached to a fishing rod and reel. The angler then retrieves the line by hand or with a mechanical device such as a winch.

This method of fishing has been around for centuries, and it is still one of the most popular ways to catch fish today. It is used in both freshwater and saltwater environments, and it can be used to catch everything from small panfish to large game fish like marlin.

Advantages of Line-Caught Fishing:

  • It is relatively inexpensive.
  • It does not require large amounts of equipment.
  • It can be done from shore or from boats.
  • It does not require bait, which makes it more humane.

Disadvantages of Line-Caught Fishing:

  • It requires patience and skill.
  • The angler must pay attention to the line in order to detect bites from fish.
