fishes with calcutta
Many years ago, before I acquired a boat and before plastic kayaks came along, I had a sail line fishing rig. I only got to use it twice but it worked and we caught a few fish. I haven't seen that done in a long time. The attached article describes the basic fishing line but doesn't touch on the real heart of the assembly. The reel or spool is the hard part. You can use a hand cranked spool but a motorized unit makes the job of bringing back the sail and 1800 feet of line back to the beach a lot easier. By motorized I mean a windshield wiper motor and a car battery. Have a look at the article see and if it's something you non kayak surf fishing folks may find interesting.
