Shuttlehawk stacker


Recommended Posts

Back before the zebra mussels/clear water, we used to stack rods all the time.  Walker made a green plastic angled device that was supposed to slide down.  I never had much luck with it.  In those days I had the best luck with a “snappy stacker” that was a black plastic slipped over cable and was locked with white plastic screw to cable and used a half hitched rubber band on line for release.  Today I’d suggest one of the pinch pad stackers or just stick with a slider on one rod.  Compared to the old days, today is fewer rigger rods with more dipsey/board lines for a wider spread.

I have used it. It works as shown &

very reasonable price to.

 

I use it fishing lite stuff in Trout lakes in the South and for Landlocks in Me.  

 

I only double up if we are having trouble finding bites to cover more water

 

good luck

yeah- i keep my riggers close so not an issue when i use them

 

i run 9’ rods off the side with or without boards -side downriggers with 2’ booms w 1 rod and sometimes a 2nd rod w that stacker

 

if no stackers-i run a 5th down middle w/wo a dipsey

 

mostly i run 5 lines on my 18’ deep vee Lowe

I can bring my cables in close also but for me it's leaning over the side to reach the water level

i gotta stretch a little but i do not use them that much so it is ok

 

i also cut a hook like notch in a yardstick for all kinds of grabbing lines and such

 

they are worth the effort though

 

good fishing
