So somehow I managed to convince the wife that a boat is a perfectly reasonable purchase. Either that or I learned a thing or two and nagged her enough. The boat I'm picking up does not have downriggers, but is wired for electric. The question I put before you, is the convenience of electric downriggers worth the extra cost? When fishing for silvers and kings, how deep do y'all normally fish? Is reeling in a 12# weight by hand all that difficult?
Once I figure this out, I'll see if I can get y'all to let me in on your secret holes!
