Capitalism at its BEST! AMERICA what a country.
He then goes over to what they call welfare point where the bank fisherman are and sold the thing for $15. Buy low sell high.

But you can catch ling cod from shore if you know how and where to fish for them. My family has been doing if for over 100 years down at Dillon's Beach, CA. That's just North of San Francisco and Point Reyes National Sea Shore, California. We've owned at least one house down there continuously since before 1900. We fish the rocks North of Dillon's by poke pole fishing. If you've never done it it looks and sounds strange but is a very effective way to fish. You fish with a long bamboo pole with a stiff wire tip of about two feet long a top the pole. You use a leader of hundred plus pound test about four inches long with at least a 5/0 hook. The trick is fishing at minus by tides climbing out onto the rocks and fishing down between and under the boulders. Clam makes the best bait and you can catch a great number of and variety of fish and eel as well as crabs that grab hold. Your bamboo pole and a burlap sack along with some bait and a couple of hooks along with a low tide and that's all you need. Not very high tech but very effective. To show you how long we've been using this technique here is a picture of my great great grandfather on the left holding a shark and his trusty poke pole at Dillon's Beach in 1901. Notice the women holding the crabs they caught too. The little pregnant lady holding onto her hat is my great aunt Maude Crocker. Her son Roy who she is still carrying was born May 14, 1901. You should see the stacks of old photos we have from way back. Maybe that's why I became a photographer. Unfortunately I hardly ever get to be in the pictures.
My wife thinks I'm the ultimate fisherman! I just hope she never finds out that you usually can't catch ling cod from the shore

Thanks we have quiet a few beach and family shots. I was going to post the one of me and my mother from 1954 but then I reconsidered.
John, that is a neat old photo graph!

I'd be leery of eating anything called "Monkey Face"...
A lot of those pole fishermen are going after Monkey Faced Cod. Kind of looks half eel half fish.

You're right Steve we just called them eels. But caught other cod, perch and rock fish. Those Monkey Buggers taste good!
