Primitive Fishing! Handline Rock Fishing in Mexico!

661 ratings | 25939 views
Rock fishing in Cabo San Lucas is DANGEROUS. Try at your own risk. Today we are ditching our fishing rods and reels and going with a more primitive version of fishing. HAND LINING. It is a whole class of fishing on its own. Many countries still have this as a primary method of fishing. It may seem basic, however it requires much skill to master. There is an art to hand lining. Watch us succeed, watch us fail. Learn from us!

You can use an old coffee Can or any can with big diameter and you can use it like a Cuban Yo-yo with at least 50 lbs mono. That's what I used when I was a kid. Both of you inspired me and I started fishing again after 25 yrs. Now with my wife and 9 yr old son. Thanks so much! Keep it up

Dont hold the line along the ridge of your finger.
mpirarxos (2 months ago)
i use handlines every time. Got some big ones. Also you don't pull the line like a maniac. You let the fish take it's space if it drags. just like when you reel

Yes your line is too lite we do it with ticker line 60 lb and for bigger fish 100lb so you can get a better grip on it and When you have fish on dont pull in from left to right by trying to grab the line you have to like roll it overhand love all of your vid keep up the good work

In about a hundred cuts your hand will get a tougher, that’s what old fishermen used to tell me. Use gloves, simple method and reliable.

Do you know how people in Montenegro learn how to fight big fish? 0.1mm line that is about 1lb test tied to the wooden beam and try sliding your fingers without braking it. Also make sure that your fingertips are wet when doing that for better sliding and later on for not making those wounds again. My personal best was 4.2kg fish on hands.

I wish I could have a wife like Erin as a fishing partner

I see an Egyptian man handling mackerel all the time and he used no gloves and 30lb. He used 1oz to 2oz with 4 to 6 flies. He was very skilled and was getting out about 40yards whipping it around four or five times and throwing it kinda like throwing a sling.

You need a thicker line for this kind of fishing.
DeKa Koplak (3 months ago)
You can use the crab's leg, in my country i use it to fishing snapper n grouper.

it's a common technique that we do in bali, even though you have a rod and reel, but here we change the spool with a bamboo or a PVC to have a better grip
Kadek Widy (4 months ago)
in bali that handling fishing is still useful technique Eventhought you have a rod and reel. but here we change the spool with a bamboo or a PVC to have a better grip on the spool

Other people have said this as well, but yeah use a Cuban Yoyo to fish with. They come in several different sizes and are inexpensive. Challenge 50140 Yo-Yo Hand Reel https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0084EF0ZY/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_Jz6ABb3163264

If you have a small pot laying around the kitchen at the hotel it would make an excellent handline
Iqram Mazian (4 months ago)
never use braid for handlining, use floro or mono line, 50LB at least.

Hello senko skipper team. First of all I want to tell you how great your channel is and that I really like your idea to show people how to do their best to catch fish.

I would love to send youy link and hope you could share that information with all your followers. gofundme.com/hotspot-fishing please check it out. Thank you

You should use Mono line heavier 30 lbs to 60 lbs and you must use gloves
Senko Skipper (4 months ago)

Awesome job Erin and Brendon maybe thicker line and a coke can next time.
Rudy Jimenez (4 months ago)
Senko Skipper ive seen little kids fishing off docks in Ensenada mexico with coke cans or plastic bottles. When the cast out line they point can or bottle end out and the line goes out and use can or bottle to wind in using a circular motion to wind in. I think by using thick line and only 20 yards of line is easier to manage and control. Good luck Brendon I'll be waiting for your next show.
Senko Skipper (4 months ago)
lol good suggestion. i think i need to wrap it around something...

Grow tougher skin & don't catch crabs from anybody. Lol
Joshua Wong (4 months ago)
Use some thicker heavier line and use this thing thats called a cuban yoyo . It has a hole in it thats ment for your hand , it makes it easier to retrieve and throw your line out , thus making it a one man job . People in my area have done it for so long , they have thicker skin (calluses) on their finger . So it doesent really bother them . Good video btw 👍🏼

In my country we do hand lining. There is no rod concept there. We wear band aid on each finger where the line rubs to avoid getting cut.
Jonah Schneider (4 months ago)

Javier Hernandez (4 months ago)
I have hand line fished since i was five years old. I am 45 now and i all ways used gloves. The line weigh doesn't matter use gloves. You felt what happened when you hooked into that big fish. The lesson learned use gloves always. I love your show and i to have learned from you.

Should be a parrot fish. You can try using a heavier main line and a lighter leader.
Heriberto Marrufo (4 months ago)
use a Cuban yo-yo
dassey dsouza D3 fishing (4 months ago)
Line size does not matter make sure u hold it tight once u hook up and then hold it between all your figures and t hole off your palm so t friction area is larger for it to get hot and burned

Stop being rude to erin
Raul Colmenero (4 months ago)
Yeah I've cut myself pretty good just tying knots when my hands are wet and I had too many beers like an idiot. Also a blue Herron flew onto my line and I stopped him to release him, got cut horribly that time but he lived, gloves with cut off finger tips are a must at least on one hand. Dude 20lb test is really thick, I wouldn't go any lighter as it would cut u even easier.
Mo Doe (4 months ago)
Nice video dude. I went to Fiji and did night fishing. I was using a hand line and caught a barracuda. I used medical tape to protect my fingers. Also I was using fresh bait with 20 lbs test line. When you set the hook, strike it hard sideways.

John Leonard (4 months ago)
Saw you got cut. We had hand lines as a kid, the line was a thick natural fibre twine on a frame and we'd use mono for the leader. Might want to try something similar.
Nathanael Davis (4 months ago)
Hand lining is actually my main fishing strategy. It's cheap and easy to learn especially as I can't afford rods as yet. Tip, get your hands on a hands caster or a yoyo as some may call it. It really makes the whole game easier. I tend to use 40lb line.
John Leonard (4 months ago)
If you were really hardcore, you'd coil the line around an empty beer or soda bottle, making what is essentially an open-faced spinning reel. Use the neck as a handle and reel in by twirling. But cool nonetheless.

Just the other day I was thinking about hand lining, you just invested in hand lining by getting thst burn bro, once that burn heals you gonna have a nice calous on there, you wont even feel the burn next time.

Wrap it back around the spool as u bring it in or wrap it around ur hand. Don't just keep pulling the line up with ur hands

You can also try the Cuban Yo Yo Fishing Reel if your going to attempt hand lining without using any gloves. I knew you we’re going to get burned & cut. That’s why I tuned in😈
