Pirking – The action of fishing a pirk. Popular in particular for cod fishing. It consists of dropping the attached pirk to the sea bed then working the pirk with a lift and drop action. Lighter pirks may be cast up-drift and worked back to the boat to maintain the optimal vertical position for longer.
