It's lots of fun to catch fish on the surface. Few fishing thrills can beat watching a big largemouth bust through the lily pads and inhale your Hula Popper or seeing a massive school of bluefish and stripers on the blitz racing to maul your Striper Swiper.

Getting Down with Downriggers

Fish don't always live or feed on the surface, however. So if you want to catch them consistently, you have to get down to their level.

Although there are a variety of ways to get your baits and lures down deeper where the fish are swimming, downriggers offer the most precise solution. You can use them to get your lures precisely as deep as you want them. Whether you are trolling on a lake or on the ocean, a good downrigger will boost your success.

There are two basic types of downrigger: hand-cranked and motor-powered. When it comes to the pros and cons of electric vs. manual downriggers, each has its ups and downs. Electric downriggers will get your lures down and back up fast while leaving your hands free. They require electricity, of course, to run, so you will need a battery on your boat.

The Simpler Solution

That's what makes manual downriggers popular, particularly for anglers with smaller boats. There's no need for a heavy battery to run a manual downrigger. That also makes manual models a popular backup choice for those with electric downriggers just in case they lose power on the water.
