The Old Man and the Sea

What does the big fish do after he take the bait? Why does Santiago keep the line across his shoulder rather than tie it to the boat?

The great fish pulls Santiago out to deeper water. Santiago refuses to let this fish go. If the fish should escape Santiago will go down with it. Santiago wants to feel the fight in all its violence and extacy.
