Default Fly line??

Ok this may be a novice question but here it goes! When people say they are putting a fly line out when bottom fishing what does that mean???

A line with a live bait and no weight on it. Always the first thing to put out when you get to a spot an anchor up

Usually it means a live bait with no weight. I usually use my king rod rigged up with a live cigar/Ly/hard tail with a 10" wire leader. For me sometimes I'll have a circle hook other times I'll rig it with a
Stinger treble. Works good for the upper water species king, Bonita, bft's... But I've also caught some
Monster snapper on em too...

Ditto above. You can add a small egg weight above it "knocker" style if wanted but usually completely weightless. Best way to pick up pelagics while bottom fishing along with some big snapper and other bottom fish that are suspended higher in the water column

You can use a balloon if wanted but that doesn't allow the bait to drift naturally

++ on Chris' description. Always a treat when it starts screaming, or a critter comes skying out of the water inhaling the bait.

catch 'em up.

I'll give you another secret. It doesn't have to be live bait either. We have caught just about everything that swims by on fresh dead cigs too.

There's no telling how many sailfish, wahoo, tuna, etc have been taken on drift lines with frozen cigs, sardines, ballyhoo, etc

Yeah, agree. "Drift line" or "free line" probably explains it better.
