    Sorry about taking so long to reply. I have never used downriggers before and I got the 12 lb balls most peeps suggested and I got releases plus rtks. Now I need to learn how to use them. Like how far to run the rtks in back of the ball or do I use flashers, dodgers or any other stuff
    I am just out there to have a lot of fun but would like to catch a few to. I have run dipsy divers and deep sixes before for trout and I have had fair results at cachuma
    but other than that I am clueless as how to use downriggers.
    they came on a boat my brother bought so might as well put the to use. Thanks for any and all info. Pete
    We have a 2460 bayliner and We hope to be seeing you all soon if salmon are a go this year

    Pete, IMO run lures a boat length back. As for flasher/dodger, it's all depending on the bite... Good luck

    Like to troll 1.5 to 3 mph. Seems changing speeds sometimes brings a bite. Good luck to us all
