Thread: downriggers on open skiff

    Default downriggers on open skiff

    I'm seeking opinions on downriggers, I have a large open skiff (20ft long 8ft beam) and I'm considering mounting 4 downriggers (probably cannon unitrol 10's). I would mount two with telescoping poles out back past the motor/prop and two with telescoping poles on both sides about half way down the boat. Does anyone have an opinion, is it possible or am I just looking for trouble.

    I ran the same set up on a narrower boat with two downrigger straight out the back on the corners of the transom and the two more telescoping riggers out the sides up by the windshield, with no sharp course changes it worked pretty good for a couple years.
