Terminating a downrigger

Recommended Posts

Well I managed to saw off a cannon ball this weekend and it now sits and the bottom of lake Ontario in 200 fow off oak orchard. I now need to re set up the rigger. I have a few of the cannon plastic crimps but after putting one on I was reluctant to try it did not seem too secure. does anyone use the cannon crimps or is there a better way?

I second the Cannon crimps. I have been using them on two boats for the last eight years without a problem. I have been using up to 16 pound weights with them.
