You can fish with the best lure or bait there is. But if the fish don’t see it, you might as well be fishing with a bare hook. You simply have to present your lures and baits to the fish where they are.
Many times that means getting your lures down deep. Whether you’re targeting lake trout and other freshwater fish hunkering deep in a lake to escape warm summer temps or are after king mackerel and other saltwater species lurking close to the bottom, downriggers will help you present your baits and lures to the fish at their level. And a downrigger is a lot easier and more fun to fish with than many other methods of deep fishing, such as wire line, which is prone to kinking and takes the fun out of the fight.
At TackleDirect, we carry a big assortment of downriggers and planers to help you take your lures and baits down to the fishes’ level. We also carry clips and accessories for downriggers and drones as well as kites and kite accessories for this exciting and productive method of fishing.
TackleDirect has downriggers, planers and accessories made by leading manufacturers, including Cannon, AFTCO, Scotty and many more. In addition to traditional manual downriggers, we also offer electric downriggers for really deep fishing or just to take the strain off your arm so you can save your energy for the fish.
Planers can be an easy and effective alternative to other methods of deep trolling, and we offer L.B. Huntington planers. They take your lures and baits down deep without weights and are surprisingly affordable.
If you enjoy the fast-growing sport of kite fishing, we have kites made of tough, waterproof rip-stop nylon that will boost your fun quotient when fishing for sailfish, dolphin and other pelagics. You’ll also find all the kite-fishing parts and accessories you need at TackleDirect, including clips and mounts.
