Saw a boat with a couple guys in MA9 running the old style meat lines. For those that arenít familiar itís a short downrigger style fiberglass boom with a pulley on the end, single action reel with cable like downrigger cable with a downrigger ball. Off of the ball a rubber snubber to flashers, hoochies or spoons or plugs. When you get a bite or fish on, you just crank them in. Have not seen them in years. Thought they were illegal now.
