Downrigger Weights

4 posts in this topic

I like to use the heaviest weight my rigger allows, 10#. That way it minimizes the "swing" due to trolling speed and keeps the ball closer to the depth level shown on the indicator.

I wouldn't go with anything lighter than ten pounds. If you are fishing anything over 70 feet deep anything under 10 will track to far behind the boat thus running them shallower than you want them too.

The deeper you go the more weight you'll need. If your buying bombs get the 12lbers.
