Nice videos! It is amazing the quality of video you are putting together with a mac pro, dji drone, etc. These videos are every bit as good as some stuff you see on Discovery done by pro crews.
Also love living vicariously through your adventures.

tip run the lines off the tip of your rods and use a rubberband off a cleat at water level to get the same effect as a handline. its called a flatline. When you get a strike the rubber band snaps and you fight the fish as normal from the rod.

Thanks, I've been waiting for a good handline while sailing video. I'm 100% clear however on how the bungie setup ties into the handline with the yo-yo. Can you elaborate?

Let me guess... Ben wears a harness and you don't because he's better at coming back around for you if you fall off the boat. If he falls off... maybe you can recover him... or not? Ben: you're my hero. I want to be you :)

I've watched a ton of sailing videos and I can't believe how many don't use hand lines. In my opinion there is no better way to catch tuna! We were out in the Pacific and each new person on the boat had to catch one on a rod and real...so much easier on a hand line. One guy had almost all the line out on the reel and was just dying, everyone was cracking up laughing..and glad it wasn't them. After he got what was left of the fish up we realized a shark had a snack. I always think of that when I see you bleed them off the back of the boat. I am surprised you haven't lost a fish:)

Excellent video....just rigging up some handline sets for my yachtie mates who are about to embark on extensive ocean-crossing voyages. Your choice of lures is spot on ..red and white always right. You might also want to try the old trusty Smith's Jig.....very reliable and a well known lure. Speargun rubber is better than bungee cord.....stronger and more more salt resistant...great video!!

Love the video and I can't wait to put the info into practice when I get my own boat. I love that you shot this partly in Port Vila, Vanuatu with Iririki Island and one of the ships I used to work on in the background. Love your work and that you keep it real. I look forward to more videos in the future.

Do you use the whole hundred yards of monofiliment, or how much do you play out behind the boat?
Sailing Nahoa

You want to have enough to place the lure outside the foam and bubbles of the boat wash. For us on a catamaran that is about 60 feet depending on speed and conditions.

Good info! We must remember to give thanks to the sentient living beings that just gave its life to sustain ourselves. A simple acknowledgement of gratitude for the catch that we are able to ingest the body flesh of this being so that we may also live. Fishing is fun and connects us to the ocean, doing so with reverence, gratitude and humility adds to how we are all connected to the life giving ocean that sustains us. The great Earth and the circle of life.

Interested to know how much line you let out, how far behind the boat you trail your lure. Cheers.
Sailing Nahoa
Sailing Nahoa - 3 years ago
Great question. This is the one thing I’m constantly changing depending on sea conditions and boat speed. A good rule anywhere between 2 to 4 boat lengths. Typically if you’re offshore fish are less spooked so you can go closer. Opposite if inshore.

A method we use in the islands is to have a 5 gallon bucket to throw your line in to when handlining... and.... WHERE ARE YOUR GLOVES YOUNG MAN??? LOL

Well done Ben, nice video. Please be careful with a flipping fish with a hook in its mouth between your bare legs. Ouch. I would have liked you to touch on how far off the stern you troll your lures, most people think that the boat scares the fish away and troll too far out the back. Free Range Sailing went into some depth on this and gave a formula for size of boat multiplied by x amount of metres. In short, the boat attracts fish, they think its cover and a great ambush place so a lure not too far out is more likely to attract those fish hanging around underneath. Speed also concerns fisher people so they want to go slower and slower but they neglect to think that most fish can swim in short bursts up to 50 kph and even faster for the top predators. Love your videos.

If you wish to catch bigger fish on a handline, tie a polyball around 40kg lift to it's boat end. Secure it to the boat with a short sacrificial line, that breaks a little easyer than your main line. A fish big enough to snap it, will then tiere out, fighting the ball while you turne the boat around, to pick him up.
Admitedly I have this from a book and never tried, other than rod and reel, single handed, which did not work well.
The polyball though is used by professionals. Start at 14:14

Not sure if your aware of this, but there are several tackle companies that will pay you to support their products. Your doin a bang up job catchin fish. Might as well get paid for using tackle while you do it. Look into Darsizzle Offshore on Youtube. She gets kick backs from tackle sales. I don't personally know the details yet but it might be worth checking into. Have fun, be safe and KEEP ON, SAILIN ON. (cheers)

Why does nobody use a cordless drill motor to bring in the line. Could be hand held or have a mount . Variable speed 1/2” Milwaukee is a good one. Make an adapter for the spool and Bobs your uncle.
Sailing Nahoa
Sailing Nahoa - 3 years ago
I think a Milwaukee might die pretty quick out here in the salt spray! Do you guys use electric drills for trolling or purely for deep see jigging?
Christer Axell
Christer Axell - 3 years ago
When watching other U- tubers sailing and fishing they sometimes say that some of the fish they caught is not for eating and they throw that fish ob. Those of us that are uncertain of the speices could have great use of knowing what kind of fish there is that fits on a plate. Would be great if u would chare your opinion on that.
Have a good trip / Christer

Hi Ben, thanks for sharing your gear set up man. Hey, how much rope from the line are you using, length of line to swivel and length of line from swivel to lure? Thanks tons if you're willing to share more details. You guys are very inspiring! Aloha!
flanflystrx
flanflystrx - 3 years ago
Thanks tons guys! Can't wait to do a similar set up. Making one soon
Sailing Nahoa
Sailing Nahoa - 3 years ago
Hey flanflystrx, Somewhere around say 40 feet of rope and then I have sections of 300lb monofilament at 40 foot sections prerigged that I can add together (eye on one end and swivel on the other). This way I can vary the length of the total setup.

Ben's the Fish Whisperer! What do you do to stun/kill the fish? I've heard all sorts of things.What do you recommend (interested in the quickest, humane way)?
Sailing Nahoa
Sailing Nahoa - 3 years ago
Alchohol in a squirt bottle is best. Squirt some into their gills and they're relaxed within seconds. Also putting a cloth over their eyes helps if you want to get really humane.
Michael Buck
Michael Buck - 3 years ago
What do you suggest as a "hit" signal? Meaning, you throw out the line, its trolling, your sailing, how do you know you have a fish on the line? do you have bell or something that gets triggered when the line starts to run out, alerting to a fish on the line? I am glad you recommended gloves, as in the video you were shown pulling in that line with no gloves on, and all I could see was the line running through my fingers and cutting a deep gash in my hand, ouch....And yes, she is a beauty, what a catch...oh and the fish too, lol
Michael Buck
Michael Buck - 3 years ago
Augh, I was wondering about the bungee, thanks for the reply, that really helps, can't wait to try this contraption out next time.
Sailing Nahoa
Sailing Nahoa - 3 years ago
You can tell pretty easily if a fish is on looking at the bungee. If it's all stretched out you got dinner in the making!
Michael Buck
Michael Buck - 3 years ago
So do I need to tug on the line every 30 min or every hour to see if there is something dead on the line, or reel it in a bit to feel if there is something on the line? Seems to me that a beel trigger of sorts would work, so as the line is pulled out or stretched on the bumper, I would now, then can wait for the fish to exhaust itself and die, then haul her in.
