Long liners are not sport guys and there is no report of the boat having a kicker.
PS, it's trolling. Trawl is a net.
You don't "fish for shark" at 30 mph and your right about trawl vs troll. Humboldt Bay was home to many trawlers before they fished themselves out of business...
BTW...did you know that as a taxpayer you own several former trawlers?
