HANDLINE FISHING

Join our activities guide for handline fishing on the waterfront. Handline fishing uses a single fishing line which is held in the hands. One or more lures or baited hooks are attached to the line. Usually a weight and maybe a float are also attached. Handline Fishing is one of the oldest forms of fishing in Fiji and is still commonly used. The line can be jigged or moved up and down in a series of short movements, most often close to the sea floor. The motion attracts the fish, which are normally caught while trying to eat the lure but also as they move close to the jigged lure. The line is then hauled in and the fish removed. Handline fishing is most often used to catch ground fish and squid but other species are sometimes caught, including pelagic zone species. If you’re lucky, you might get one for dinner!
