Release above or below my probe?


Recommended Posts

Above the probe cause if you put it below when you take the slack out of line it will allow the probe to swing against it possibly cause a weak point and breaking line.

Don't use that crappy breakaway cable that comes with the probe, I lost a cannonball a few years ago when I was bringing the ball over to me. There must have been a weak spot in the cable and it broke free alright, right to the bottom. I made up a heavy duty rig to attach the ball. My probe never comes within 10 ft of the bottom so I don't need it to break free.
Also, those probes are about $250 to replace so if it's not in the water it's in the protective case, I don't dangle it from the downrigger.IMG_1348.JPG
