Default Re: Down rigger

Thats exactly right they have a weighted ball with a line clip that is attached to a wire reel. You set your line out at the desired distance behind the boat then clip to the weight. drop the weight to the depth you want and if you get a hit the line clip lets go and your on. Some downriggers are more fancy than others with auto retrieve and other bells and whistles but they all work on the same idea. I have the cannon uni-troll and they work the balls. Hope this helps ya dude
