Down Riggers


Havin' Fun

Question

I'm looking in to buying some riggers for my boat for fishing lake Michigan. I'm looking for some advice on what to buy. I will not be a super serious Big lake man as my boat is 17' but for basic usage, what would you suggest for specifics for the Cannon down riggers.

Length?
Model?
Cable length?

If your not that serious then the Cannon Easy Troll would be my choice. At $150 its a little more then the Sport Troll but you'll get 150'of cable (Sport Troll 100')along with the digital counter. The counter on the Sport Troll is to put it bluntly JUNK. Both have a 2' boom.

The next step up is the Uni-Troll with a telescoping boom and 200' of cable. The base swivels also.

My advice would be to go with manual downriggers. I have been going to Lake Michigan for 15+ years and sure it would be nice to have electrics, but the manuals work just fine. Besides, then you have the money saved from not going with the electrics to get other gear as you've mentioned. One more thing to consider before buying downriggers is where in your boat you will place them and how you will mount them. Just my $.02 worth. Good luck.

Never Enough......

I went out on LS last night chasing trout and salmon for my first time and had a blast. What advice would you have for an entry level purchase. Is it safe to say that you shouldn't vere from Cannon?

What features are important?

Thanks!

Go with the Easy Troll. Cannon's clutch and lock are the best design with a one hand operation. Downside is the only come with 150' of cable.

      With all that amount of guests you have, you need to create the application, yes or yes, it will facilitate communication between you and your clients, making it possible for you to answer each query, doubt and order that they ask of you, in addition to being able to charge them for your service with total comfort, try try to contact a company that is dedicated to developing this type of applications, although I cannot know exactly how much the creation cost will be, so try to have enough capital to spend

      To create such an application, developers specializing in investment applications for banks and other financial services are needed. At https://mangosoft.tech/industry/investment-software-development/ you can order the creation of investment applications from scratch or find ready-made solutions.

      great app idea never heard of commercial apps before. it seems to me that the fastest way to find developers on any exchanges, that is, you need to place your ad and then you will be offered all possible options

      It seems to me that this is excellent advice, but one option is not enough, I think. You need to look at a few and decide which one is best, it all depends entirely on the customer.

      the best option is to entrust such work to other specialists, but you will have to pay a lot of money for this, but still I think it's worth it to get a quality product that you will have to work with for a very long time, if not all your life

      Tips for Reducing the Stress of Writing High School Papers  
    • leoholmes
      High school is a pivotal time in every student's life. The challenges of this period range from the courses themselves to the social pressures that come from interacting with peers. One of the main challenges high school students face is writing papers. The reason for this is that writing is a skill that develops over time, and many high school students have never had to produce a paper before. High school students need to write papers for many different classes. These papers may be research papers or essays. These different types of papers all require different skills for help write my paper. However, high school students may struggle with all of them. This is because they aren't used to producing writing on a regular basis.
