  5. size motor for trolling on a crestliner 1650 I am going to purchase a Crestliner 1650 and I was just wondering if a Mercury 4 stroke 60 horse would be alright for trolling. I don't want to bother with a kicker. Thanks!
  6. you should have at least 4 foot booms on the outside riggers and keep them high and the inside downriggers should be deep. you also need to keep them all as far back as you can get them. they should be mounted on a board. 2 riggers is fine with cheaters and dipseys, leadcore and copper as the other two lines. 4 poles is fine nowdays.
  7. thanks again cny mike I appreciate the info. they look good to me.
  8. thanks cny mike that is the boat I am looking at. how far back do the brackets go and I like to run my downriggers out the back. will I need 4 ft. booms. thanks for your help.
  9. crestliner suremount downrigger mounting bracket I am thinking about buying a crestliner boat and just wondering if anyone with a crestliner has tried these brackets.
  10. yesterday it was 45
  11. drop my weights down to 5 to 10 ft. off the bottom sometimes. hit bottom many times in the finger lakes but never got hung up. just pay attention when you are running them close to the bottom. the downrigger will bounce like crazy when you hit.
  12. seth green rig rod I would like to know where to get a good seth green rig rod and some other seth green rig tackle. thank you for any help
  13. you will never have a problem with fluorocarbon as long as you use the 100% fluorocarbon and wet the line good before you clinch your knot tight. I think the fluorocarbon has more friction when you cinch your knot tight which can weaken it.
  14. I use the cannon downrigger cable. I always crimp two sleeves on the cable and make sure you leave enough slack so it wont pull through.
  15. medium light for everything. I light the fight.
