  1. Replacing Line Counter on Marlin Electric HP Hey guys, I have a Marlin Electric HP downrigger and I need to replace the line counter. I do not want to remove the spool (which means disassembling the entire downrigger) but I might have. I could be wrong though. Any ideas on how to do it?

    Diver Rod Angle

    I know this may be a little cheaper than the wahoo industries one but seemed to get good reviews and I only fish 8-10 times a year. The price is half that of the wahoo one. Any thoughts?

    Diver Rod Angle

    @greenboatluke I agree with you and would love to have one on each side but its my dad's boat and I would have to install metal trackers which would not fly with him haha. But I appreciate the suggestion.

    Diver Rod Angle

    @reelintense and @bout time thank you so much for your feedback. I am assuming the rod was more perpendicular to the water?
  7. Diver Rod Angle Hey guys, I am a beginning fisherman but have been out a few times. We have a center console with a t-top and rod holders on top. I run two downriggers, one on each corner and was looking to add a diver to the mix but don't have rod holders allowing the rod to sit parallel to the water. Has anyone tried running a diver down the shoot between the two riggers with a vertical rod angle? or have any suggestions? Thanks for the advice, Dan

    Hey guys, I was out between stony point and calf yesterday afternoon. Had 5 releases and no fish. Again, I'm new to this but is that normal? Am I doing something wrong? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    marlin electric hp downrigger repair

    Thanks for the advice! How much old wire should I leave to crimp the new wire too? A foot? A few inches? Sent from my Nexus 6P using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Hey guys, Last year I bought two used Marlin Hp's (standard). They seemed to be in pretty good condition but need some tuning up. First, I need to re-spool one of the riggers. I don't think I can remove the plastic spool from the downrigger. Do I just remove the old cable and rewire the new cable similar to that of a fishing reel? As you can tell I am new to this. Second, one of the riggers has short stop but was touchy on the water last year. The other rigger was altered. The previous owner removed short stop and installed a reverse motor switch. I am looking to do the same with the rigger that currently has short stop because I think the wiring is shot. Any suggestions when it comes to this? Again, I am new to this and would love some help! Thanks, Dan
