It�s here at �The Fishing Line� television show for nearly a decade...we�ve given viewers and anglers this kind of excitement! Learn the why�s and how�s of the tackle, techniques, Rigs and tactics used to subdue trophy fish of all species that call the northeast home.

Whether we use Live Herring for Winter Stripers, or Live Snappers for Doormat Fluke, Plugging Bass and Blues in the skinny water of the back bays in the early morning of a summer heat wave or hitting the Surf for Striped Bass or Kingfish from time to time...�The Fishing Line� has covered it and will continue covering it all�giving northeast regional anglers exciting fishing action and information.

Would you like to see weakfish wormed or bucktailed on light tackle?
