:1welcomeani: Snapper1,

I have never used a downrigger so I can't help you with the tangling.

But you do have to have the boat moving.

A very slow troll is what is needed.

Maybe once you do this it will prevent the line from tangling.

Hope this helps.

Mate as Steve has suggested you do a very slow trolling speed.

The best advice i can give you is to maybe go out on a charter with Pete Le Blang who is Sydney's most experienced downrigger.

Both Namesay and I learnt this technique from him i know many members have been out with him to learn how to use a downrigger correctly, Like Big Steve
