I`ve been looking at trotline supply sites on line for these longline clips, thinking they may be available cheaper than at the commercial fishermans supply. Haven`t found anyone who even carries them, retail. Talking to T`KISH KAPE, he says he has been looking for them. So I thought you trotline fishermen may be interested in them. They sure make setting out and picking up easy. We use mono 125# and up for the drops, which allows you to work 50 to 100 droplines out of one bucket, prebaited, without tangling. You would have to think about weight, seems to me you like to run lines in midwater. Also, you would need to tie knots in your mainline to keep large fish from sliding them together so you stay legal with your separation. The other thing is they are kind of expensive, being stainless they have gone up pretty much. If enough of you are interested, I will contact the moderators and the supply store and see if they can become a sponsor of this site. That seems to be the right thing to do.
