Instant downrigger

Recommended Posts

The extra bait in the spread is hard to argue for sure. We used to use an inline weight with a flasher and then a halco trembler (http://www.halcotackle.com/international/lures/36/gt-jig) with some success so I was considering using the instant downrigger in place of the inline, thus reducing the length of the post-weight rig. Sounds a little crazy this year with all the success everyone (including myself!) has had with mojos, parachutes, stretches etc, guess I'm always tinkering and trying different methods!! Also, I tend to use lighter gear than most for striper. Although this year, if I had it, I would have deployed bft ready gear!!
