  1. If you decide to go with scottys I would recommend the older style with the mechanical counters. Pretty much bullet proof. Also the extendable boom and the swivel base gives you all the flexibility you will ever need https://johnssportinggoods.com/product/downriggers/scotty-downriggers/electric-downrigger/scotty-downrigger-1116/ https://johnssportinggoods.com/product/downriggers/scotty-downriggers/electric-downrigger/scotty-downrigger-1106/ Good luck with your decision
  2. I guess looting and burning are not worth mentioning by some.
  3. You will be happy with the cannons. Glad you caught it before you lost anything,
  4. X2 However correct size crimps installed correctly should not slip.
  5. Usually doesn't matter to the fish. It's more of a speed thing dependent on what you have in the water and how you adjust your boat speed to the current. Plenty of days working the same area I have been taking more shots going in one direction while another boat in the area is getting bit more moving in the opposite direction.
  6. Sharks for optimum performance torpedo shape for good performance and a lot less cost.I got some from troutman and they are decent
  7. I put a couple hundred ft of 40 lb mono on the 600's and 1000 ft of 30 lb 7 strand fills the reel nice.Edit. Good luck. Opps sorry. you were asking about the rigger reels.
  8. I run 600's on my wires and rigger rods for salmon, 500's on my Brown trout rods. Haven't fished the new ones yet, these are the old style.
  9. It can get crowed on the weekends. Crowded if the fishing is good but doable.
  10. Piece of parachute cord with a small stainless steel clip tied on the end
  11. Good luck whatever you decide. I currently have four Scotty electrics on my boat and been running two of them since 1994. They are virtually bullet proof and personally do not have any reason to buy anything else. The only downside is they are physically larger than the other brands with the horizontal spool.. For ease of use and reliability I have nothing but good things to say about them. Reasonably priced as well.
