Definition of Term
- pole-and-line fishing
Surface schooling fish such as tuna are attracted to a vessel and driven into very active feeding behavior by throwing live or dead bait into the water and by spraying water onto the sea surface to simulate the escape behavior of small prey. The fish are lured with a line and a barbless hook attached to a pole and pulled off the water by manual (sometimes with two people to each pole) or powered devices.
