Abstract

One of the important factor which determine the success of handline fishing operation is bait. Normally, fishermen use natural bait, goldstripe sardinella and Indian mackerel, to catch hairtail. However, those fish has a high price and not always availabe. This study aims 1) to analyze the composition of the catch, 2) to analyse the weight-length distribution of the catch 3) to measure the productivity of catch based on bait type. The research was conducted by using experimental fishing. The obtained catch was small-head hairtail (Lepturacanthus savala) with a total of 1.148 individuals, weighing of 235.58 kg. Length-weight relationship of small-head hairtail (Lepturacanthus savala) is y=0.0008x3.0113, which is positive allometric. The productivity of handline using natural bait was 5.95 kg per trip while the productivity of handline with artificial bait was 5.26 kg per trip. However, artificial bait can be used as an alternative to substitude natural bait for catching small-head hairtail when natural bait is not available or in a season when hairtail is hard to catch.
