Down-riggers allow you to get your bait and lures to the correct trolling depth, when the fish strikes your line is released from the down-rigger and the ball weight can be retracted electrically or manually depending on the unit purchased. Electric down-riggers are preferred when fishing in deep water. The electric motor does the work of hauling up the weight often 8 to 15 lbs from 100ft, 200ft or 300ft in some cases. Down-riggers can easily be fitted to most fishing boats. Along with Downriggers and Planer reels/posts we offer a wide variety of mounting fixtures and accessories for adapting the riggers to your boat. Many of the units come with swivel bases and telescoping booms and rod holders mounted to the downrigger. With these versatile and space saving features the down-rigger is easy to maneuver.
