FAQ:

Q: What size downrigger weight should I use?

A: What size Downrigger weight should I use? When using a Downrigger to help control where your Line is sitting, the amount of weight you attach to it can be determined by the troll speed and lure and bait resistance. The rule of thumb is the bigger the better, though it depends on what you are trying to catch. If you troll a small trout lure slowly, you can use a small weight.

Q: How to make downrigger balls?

A: DOWNRIGGER CANNON BALL WEIGHT Precision engineered, this 2 piece mold is designed to give you a straight running ball.You will need your bench vise to stabilize the mold as well as heavier casting equipment. If you are looking to protect the finish on your downrigger balls you can spray our Heat & Dip Powder Paint for a hard high gloss finish using our Powder Paint Spray Gun.

Q: What is downrigger blowback?

A: What is Downrigger Blowback? Simply stated, downrigger blowback is what happens to the downrigger weight when you pull it through the water behind your trolling boat. As your speed increases, so does the horizontal distance between the downrigger weight and your downrigger. The faster you go, the farther the downrigger weight is behind you.
