Selecting Downriggers

Downriggers use a heavy weight to keep the lure much deeper than would be possible with a conventional sinker. By presenting the bait or lure at the desired depth while trolling, various species of fish are easier to attract and catch.

There are a few styles of downriggers to choose from when outfitting your fishing boat. West Marine carries electric downriggers and manual downriggers, as well as plenty of styles of downrigger mounts for installation on your boat. You'll also find downrigger covers, downrigger parts and downrigger weights. For first-time installation, we also offer downrigger kits. Whether you want a Cannon downrigger, a Scotty downrigger or rigging accessories for the downrigger you have, you’ll find it all at West Marine.
