Choosing the correct Downrigger for your boat and for your fishing
experience is like deciding what to put on your pizza. It could be mind
boggling and confusing, the first time. But once you know all the
working parts of the rig as well as your fishing goals, and your boat,
then choosing a rig is a piece of cake.
I am going to start with one of the most important factors;
Do you want Electric Downrigger?The first thing that comes to my mind is
comfort and money, now if you want comfort and have money, then the
option is easy. But lets say you hate to spend for nothing, then think
about your fishing goals; are you going to lure in deep waters, if you
do, that means that you have a lot of crank to do , to bring that baby
up, especially if you are using lots of weight. If you fish often and
you fish deeper than let’s say 50 feet, I would suggest you bankroll an
electric downrigger that would save you a lot of energy and frustration
on that hot day, especially if they are striking a lot.
