My Pop had a mortar (length of steam pipe)that he used to launch his long line with.

The projectile was a shortened window weight about 3" long with a length of chain attached.

It would launch the line 3-400 metres out to sea.

As a small kid it was pretty cool watching him launch it too.

Cheers
Pete

Only those aviators who choose to fly low passes over Pop's fishing spot.
