    Default Re: Interesting or unusual fishing tactics

    I've seen Asian folks locally fish with mono wrapped around a plastic bottle.
    They toss the weight and bait out, spinning it around over head like you would with a sling.
    Then after winding up the slack around their soda bottle, the bottle gets propped up on a stick in the sand.
    When the get a hit, the bottle spins on the stick just like a free spool reel.
    Real friendly guys. Just don't ask them if they have fishing licences

    Believe coral type traps were learned from American indians. First being made from sticks & twigs. Have seen depictions of such, for river use.

The fish, if they had the brain power, could escape via the way they got in but fish aren't known for that type of reasoning power. The fish would swim around in circles inside the pin until the people that set up the trap came along and took them out. The person I was with who had a grasp of the local history said the structures dated back to the indigenous people of the region.
    That particular fish weir off Hardings Beach..
    I don't know why, but if you fish directly in front of it, that's the best spot on that whole stretch of sand between the outlet and the next creek to the west.

    Here on the local river there's a number of prehistoric fish weirs and those structures still hold fish 5 thousand years later.
