Suggested Downrigger


Recommended Posts

Hello fellow FR's.

I need some suggestions for a downrigger for my 4.9m webster. I'm thinking of running 2.

Some quality brand names, advice about whether to go manual or electric, type of mount would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

go electric , nothing better then pushing the switch up and then forgetting about the bomb until it comes up. This gives you time to fight the fish and not to worry about winding in the bomb with rod in one hand and boat rocking from you moving about.

Run one downrigger until you get the hang of it or if you fish solo. A double hook up on manual downriggers would make you cry like a little girl if your on your own.

hope this helps.

cheers john
