I was visiting a buddy yesterday and as I was leaving I noticed a guy fishing with a unique contraption. At first I did not even notice the boat because I was intrigued at his fishing method. He was using a spool that was 6" diameter and 4" wide like you would see someone use as a hand line but the only difference was he was using it in conjunction with a fishing rod. I thought that was pretty neat until I realized what he had done with his boat. He was packing up to leave and I did not even think to use my phone to snap a picture, he was heading towards the boat launch so I headed over to snap a few pictures. Personally I think it is a neat idea and cuddos to the guy for thinking of it.

Weird, but cool. How does he get from the front to the back? Doesn't look like there is enough room on the sides to walk.

He was prolly fishing with what the Cubans call a "Yo-Yo". it is the most common way that Cubans fish.
i do like the idea of taking an old camper shell from a pick-up and Upgrading to Cabin Cruiser status,,,,,he shoulda stuck a Hatteras or Bertram logo on the side !!

I seem to recall a reel that possibly came from Australia that had those dimentions and it had a crank handle built into the side. To go from casting( like a spinner) to cranking it flipped 90 degrees.

I have seen those in FL. This was a separate plastic spool.

I had a client that brought one on my boat I was like what is that so he proclaimed to tell everyone how far he could cast with it.[supposely it wins long cast contest down under every year lol]by the end of the day he was useing one of my spinning rods.It was called a maldy or something similiar Scott Reeh might remember the name funny to hear about one of them things.
