I have just noticed, that you folks have got fishing and hunting section here, so I decided to take advantage of it. I was selecting a downrigger for the upcoming season, and wanted to see, what you folks will say about it. Perhaps, this will make my shopping easier.
Now, I am not ready to spend 1K+ for the electric downrigger, so I am selecting from the mid-priced mechanical ones.
At the moment, I was selecting between these 2:
Big John - https://www.amazon.com/DOWNRIGGERS-M.../dp/B00030AFE8
Scotty's - Scotty┬« 1099 - Compact Depthpower Electric Downrigger with Rod Holder - RECREATIONiD.com
My budget is between $300-$400 at max.
I appreciate any comments on the downriggers you use, or on these 2 I've mentioned.
