I may buy a manual downrigger to troll up some kokanee this summer. What do I need? What should I look for/stay away from in terms of the riggers, releases, rods, etc.?
Holly Guacamole Don!!! Going to the dark side are you?Wow the world is ending...GoFindYourOwnDamnFish trolling for forage!...and yes that salmon you made was badass...
One of these days! I appreciate the offer! That has got to be a blast. Did your trawling gear work out the way you were hoping? Looked like a great set-up.X2 on the swivel mounts. I'm spoiled with Trawling for fast action kings in Ak, if any of you guys ever want to plan a trip up and hop in8)
An epic trip it was almost 10 years ago...two epic versions of the trip...one factual (mine)...my first koke trip, never used a fish bonker (downrigger) before that trip...and my first baitcaster...Ihave over come that use one for swimbaits now...too bad the pictures are lost from the story...here is the thread...Holly Guacamole Don!!! Going to the dark side are you?
If you are ever in Denver, I have a few fish bonkers I can set you up with; as Z once called them after successfully bonking a salmon on the head. Canon.
Yes and no, I change out the stainless steel cable for braid and it turned out to be a mistake.One of these days! I appreciate the offer! That has got to be a blast. Did your trawling gear work out the way you were hoping? Looked like a great set-up.
