Wishbone/Junior Holder

The Original Wishbone Style Outrigger Holder has been in production for over 45 years. Setting the standard for the industry, our "Junior" outrigger holder has often been imitated, but never equaled. Its ease of operation, adjustable fishing angle, ability to lay down for bridges and small footprint makes it the ideal holder for a multitude of boats. Durability was the watchword at its conception. You won't find plastic parts in this holder. Constructed of heavy duty brass forgings, heavy wall brass pipe and a stainless steel main tube, it epitomizes strength and reliability. The three point mounting system provides maximum strength and distributes the stress to the mounting surface over a wide area. This holder can be mounted vertically or angled toward the stern. Somewhere between twenty to thirty five degrees is normal.

Our "Junior" design is available in two sizes, the 2" x 18" Main Tube (OH226S) and the 2" x 36" (OH234S). Model OH226S is for use with our deluxe 19ft. single spreader poles and non-spreader poles up to 22ft. For double spreader poles longer then 20ft. we recommend the OH234S. To deploy the rigger into the fishing position, simply open the locking gate and loosen the clamp housing. The clamp housing then slides down the main tube until you either lock it or it meets the stop collar for a preset fishing position. To lower the unit for passing under bridges, the locking gate stays closed and the clamp remains locked to the top of the main tube. The eye bolt is removed, thus separating the clamp housing from the wishbone. The main tube is then lowered into the supplied lay down hook.

Center Rigger Holder

The Center Rigger has proven to be an effective tool when trolling. It should be the highest outrigger when the others are deployed in the fishing position. Its line runs straight down the middle with its bait being the farthest back. The Center Rigger bait, more often than not, is the one struck after the other baits have streamed by.

Carbonfiber Poles

The same advanced aerospace technology used in the America’s Cup and other cutting edge marine products has come to outriggers. The result is an outrigger that is almost half the weight and significantly stiffer than a traditional aluminum outrigger pole. The Lee’s Carbon Fiber Outriggers, unlike our competitors who merely replace the aluminum tubing in a traditional outrigger with carbon tubes, ours are made from uniquely engineered, one piece, semi-tapered tubes of incredible strength and stiffness. The tubes, which are made of continuously braided carbon filaments woven on specially designed mandrels, are optimized to withstand the stresses associated with pulling large lures, big baits or spreader bars. These are the outriggers of choice for the sportsman who demands the best products available.

  • • Light Weight – Makes deplyment, retrieval, raising and lowering a breeze.
  • • Stiffness – Spreaders become unnecessary.
  • • Internal halyards enter and exit through rollers at reinforced openings -
  • • Outriggers come pre-rigged with 400 lb. black mono.
  • • Clear coat finish is standard – optional custom paint color is available.
  • • Fits Lee’s Sidewinder and other T-Top outrigger holders.
  • • Modified versions are available for other holder configurations.
