Outriggers are used for trolling for large pelagic fish such as marlin, sailfish, mahi-mahi and tuna. Deployed on boats in pairs, outriggers enable anglers to troll multiple lines at the same time, which greatly increases the chance of a strike. West Marine offers aluminum and carbon fiber outrigger poles. When shopping for outriggers, consider purchasing a Taco or Tigress outrigger kit. Outrigger kits include a pair of outrigger poles, a pair of outrigger mounts and an outrigger rigging kit. Outrigger rigging kits include a variety of small items that are needed to rig each outrigger pole. These items include outrigger lines, outrigger stoppers, outrigger line crimps and outrigger release clips. West Marine sells outrigger poles by Taco Marine and Tigress.
