The Advantage of Using Outriggers

Increases the number of lines that can be trolled from your boat. Four lines can easily be trolled at once - one from each outrigger and one from each corner of your transom. An additional deep line may be trolled from a center outrigger.

Outriggers get your lures (or natural baits) out of the wake and into the green water increasing the spread of your lures and enabling you to cover a much larger area. Lures trolled in the outer wake of the boat have a more lifelike action.

Because the line trolling your lure starts from high up, you can get your lure much further behind your boat while maintaining its position near to the surface. Lures can be trolled with the line and leader out of the water. Lures with a tendency to spin and twist lines will do so less when trolled with an outrigger.

Provides automatic drop back when used with an outrigger release clip. This is essential when fishing for sailfish or other billfish. When the fish strikes the lure, the line is pulled from the release clip creating a large amount of slack and causing the lure to stop in the water simulating an injured fish. This allows time for an unhooked fish to pick up and often swallow the lure.
