For viewers that are further interested in learning more about greenstick fishing, you can download a 1996 publication North Carolina Sea Grant produced that describes the gear configuration used by Outer Banks commercial and recreational fishermen to catch tuna. The publication further explains how to construct and operate the rig in either commercial or recreational applications. Download here: http://nsgl.gso.uri.edu/ncu/ncuh96001.pdf
