so when u use a down rigger do u put ur line out to where u want it then put the downriggerball on it an put it to the depth u want it.i got 1 but this year will be 1st time usein it.thanks for the help
That is exactly how you do it. You will need to let some additional line out as the downrigger ball is dropping down to the desired depth and then you reel up some to get a little bend in the rod so that upon a strike it pop's out of the release clip cleanly. I've had some good success with mine. Best of luck!
Thou shalt not "jump" on any boat-step on is much better.We let out 25-35' of line -then twist the line 10 or so times to form a loop.This loop goes in the clip.Lower the ball with the reel in free spool but with the clicker on.Easy to learn.Sunday March 4th at Tri State marine-I'll be doing a seminar.Downriggers are part of it.
