    oh he is probally runnin limb lines or bank lines...maybe even a trot line...he just ties his lines onto a branch or shove a stick or pipe into the ground and ties his lines onto it, baits them, and leaves them out over night. its a very easy way to take cats and other fish if ya got the time

    As a general note, you might want to check your local fishing regulations before you do that. Trotlines are illegal out here in California. Other people on the board have mentioned that they are required to label their trotlines with name and address.

    I hope things work out for you.

    That's what it sounds like to me.
    I have tied on to someting at bank, tree limb or whatever, go on bout my buisness and check on it now and then. we call it throw lines.

    I agree.
    Before doing any kind of fishing, I would check your fishing regulations. Any store you buy a hunting/fishing license should have a reg. book on counter, free to take. Also can look it up on your state, parks and wildlife web site.

    since your friend was talking about it, maybe ask him what he meant about night lines and go from there.
    Sometimes slang words mean different things in different areas.
    it could be, setting up poles for night fishing.

    good luck fishing
