Out on our boat today came across several boats with people hand lining and jogging. Any idea what they're fishing for? Right at the base of the GG bridge.

Yeah rockfish. Sometimes the party boats would drift there on a pot luck trip. Nice to go home with halipers and cod. On the small side though

Hand-lining? That's a new one on me... vertical jigging with rod/reel, yes. I've caught quite a few fish under the bridge toward the south-side vertical jigging live anchovies on a three-way swivel, 12# monofilament and a 4-ounce cannonball weight in 60 feet of water. That was on the Ms Farallon. For sometime after 911, you could not fish directly under the Golden Gate Bridge as we had done. Mostly smaller rockfish but sometimes some big cabezon and barely keeper lings. If you float over to the Marin side in about half the depth, halibut.

Handlining is the traditional way to take bottomfish.

Yeah, but I thought that was just long-lining on a commercial boat? I've never hand-lined on a sport-charter....

I figured they were private boats. I've seen handlining a time or two. Usually by those who practiced it in the old country.

Old country as in people who cant afford a rod and reel so they must handline?

On piers maybe. I ran across an M.D. Who handlines from his own boat.
