Introduction to Controlled Depth Fishing

Undoubtedly there are many fishermen familiar with the methods and use of controlled depth fishing. During the mid 1960's the state of Michigan introduced Pacific salmon into the Great Lakes in an attempt to revitalize its sport fishing industry. From this successful transplant, new fishing techniques and equipment were developed. One such method was controlled depth fishing which enabled fishermen to place a lure at a desired depth by utilizing downriggers.

Because of the varying factors (water temperature, thermocline, weather, tides, time of day, or time of year) it is necessary for successful fishing to maintain specific water depths that coincide with fish movements and feeding patterns.

One essential feature of the downrigger is the depth meter or gauge that indicates lure depth. This allows the angler to control as well as return to specific depths where fish have been caught.

Due to the success of controlled depth fishing, downriggers are now being used throughout the world to catch a wide variety of species in both fresh and salt water. Whether fishing for blues off Rhode Island, walleyes in Lake Erie, sailfish off the coast of Florida, or stripers in Tennessee, the use of downriggers will make your fishing more successful and more enjoyable.

Installation

Downrigger Mounting on Boats

A downrigger should be mounted wherever it is easy to operate and observe. You want to be able to see your fishing rod and to react quickly. So, choosing a good location to mount your downrigger on your boat is very important.

Due to the great variety of boats available, mounting your downrigger can be a difficult decision. Cannon has a complete line of mounting and fishing accessories to aid in your fishing experience. Before making any permanent changes to your boat consider what accessories might be used in your application.

Installing the Base on Your Boat Decks up to 7/16" thick

Where access to the underside of the deck is not available, the mounting base can be mounted using wellnuts. Use the base as a template to mark locations and drill four wellnut clearance holes. Mount the base using four 1/4-20x1-1/2"truss head screws and four wellnuts. Tighten the screws so the wellnuts are firmly compressed as pictured.

Decks up to 7/16" Thick

Decks thicker than 7/16"

For decks thicker than 7/16", or where the underside of the deck is accessible, mount the base with screws, nuts, and washers. Use the base as a template to mark the locations and drill four 9/32" holes. Use four 1/4-20x 2" truss head screws and four each flat washers and nuts. Fasten the base to the deck as pictured. NOTE: WellnutsSHOULD NOT be used on decks thicker than 7/16".

Locations

Decks thinner than 1/4"

Use a Cannon deck plate (PN 2200693) to prevent deflection and add stability to decks thinner than 1/4". Use the deck plate as a template to mark the hole locations.

If access to the underside of the deck is not available, the deck plate can be mounted using screws and wellnuts. Use the deck plate as a template to mark locations and drill 4 wellnut clearance holes. Use four 1/4-20x1-1/2"flat head screws and four wellnuts to mount deck plate. Tighten the screws so the wellnuts are firmly compressed.

Where the underside is accessible, the deck plate can be mounted using screws, nuts, and washers. Drill 9/32" holes. Use four 1/4-20x1-1/2"flat head screws, nuts and washers (flat and lock). Fasten plate to deck. To secure the mounting base to the deckplate use four1/4-20x 1" truss head screws.

NOTE: When using the telescopic boom, we strongly recommend the use of a deck plate on all boats to provide adequate stability for the downrigger.

The Low-ProfileSwivel Base mounting follows the same

Installation

procedure as for the deck plate except that four 1/4"-20

x 1-1/2"truss head screws are used to fasten the

 

mounting base and four additional 1/4"-20x 2" truss

 

head screws fix the swivel base to the boat deck.
