A trot line is a long rope or cord with many separate lines of fishhooks attached to it, used for catching large quantities of fish, primarily catfish. Lonnie Grinnup's trotline "of light cotton rope" runs the width of the river (68) near his hut, and around the house are "short lengths of cord just cut from a spool near by, and a rusted can of full of heavy fishhooks, some of which had already been bent onto the cords" (68) that are ready to be baited and attached to the rope.
