A friend finaly decided to get a new boat, man is it nice 2005 baha 251GLE. Anyway he is having the dealer install all of his stuff so I don't have to this time. He had 4 downriggers on the old boat and he is going to have the 2 electric ones put on the new boat and I get the 2 manual ones. I have never used them before and plan to use them on some of the central ohio lakes. I plan on picking his brain but the only time he uses his is when he goes to N/Y fishing for kings. I am looking for any information from the guys that use them on smaller lakes. I have a basic idea of how they work but is there anything that I should keep in mind. Any tips or tricks would help me out. Thanks.
