Re: A few downrigger questions

There is a product called king starboard that is a polymore sheet in half to three quater in. thickness. Cut the size you need, thru bolt to gunnel and mount base. Or if you have gunnel rod holders you can buy gimbal mounts for the riggers. If you want some starboard product I,ll give you what you need as I have plenty of extra. Also have some gimbal mounts. e-mail me if I can help. Cal P.

Re: A few downrigger questions

thanks, that's very kind of you. sent you an email but it got kicked back.

Re: A few downrigger questions

This may be another option. I will be eventually installing these on my new ride.


Re: A few downrigger questions

thanks for the help everyone. i ended up building some some mounts out of steel. pretty simple design.. basically like a hitch/receiver setup. they work pretty well. managed to try em out this weekend on winnisquam. no salmon, but i did pick up a small rainbow.

i also grabbed some chamberlain releases too. glad i did.. the ones that came with the riggers didn't seem like they would work all that well. the chamberlains are really nice.

Re: A few downrigger questions

i run lures 8 to 20 feet off a painted ball, either chartruese green yellow or orange, the painted ball attracts fish close in. earlier when the line is much further out the lead or black color works better, no attraction for long lines out is needed or wanted on the ball
