Halibut and Blackcod Commercial Fishing Photographs


  1. Great pictures,to dang cold up there for me though.

    Looking at all the tubs of line I am guessing that he uses drop long lines(vertical)? Our long liners have their line on a spool and lay out miles of it horizonal.

    BTW Jen I have finally got around to reading some of the last few of months NF stacked on my desk and made it as far as the plug for your article,hopefully I will get to it by the weekend.

    • Now, I’m no Alaska halibut/blackcod longline expert, but I do know the lines drop vertically. Buoy on top, miles of line, and an anchor holding it down. I think. LOL. What do they fish for your way with horizontal line?

      • Swordfish,Tuna,Shark,Tilefish and Grouper what little they can fish now because of regulations,these guys put out the high-flyer and run their gear straight out.BTW I’m not a expert either on this kind of fishing but have been around it and have friends in it.
