Prior to moving back to S.E. PA last summer, most of my fishing was done on the Finger Lakes of NY and Ontario. The tools of choice there were planner boards or downriggers. Since I have a pair of electric riggers, and am familar with their use, I'm wondering if I could use them to run an umbrella rig? Could I use a short piece of wire to attach the umbrella to the ball, and then hook the release for the bait to the center of the rig? Once the fish takes the bait, you would be fighting the fish only. thanks!
