When trolling with outriggers you can troll with more lines in the water, thus pulling more bait
which simulates a school of fish. Outriggers will eliminate tangled lines. Each outrigger can
accommodate one or two lines from your rods and reels. The line is used with a release clip
that extends to the end of your outrigger. When a fish strikes your bait, the release clip will
allow your fishing line to come free of the outrigger so you can reel in the fish.
Double Rigging
The pad eyes that the bungee hooks to on the
gunwale is usually installed about 6" toward the
stern between the outrigger holder and the rod
holder. On the T-top, the pad eye is usually hooked
on the outer T-top ring so it can be easily reached.
Apply small amount of tape in
middle of line bundle (to avoid a
fraid end).
Cut the two bundles of line into 2.
Run the outrigger line (1) up
through each of the eye guides from
the bottom up to the very top eye.
Run top outrigger line (2) up to the
2nd from the end eye guide. Do the
following for both lines (1&2):
A) Pass line through float and
then through the barrell sleeve,
through the snap swivel assembly
and back through the barrell sleeve.
B) Tie a double knot and then
attach the release clip to swivel
assembly. (The adjustment screw
on the release clip faces up.)
C) Using the other end of the line
(1), run line through the pulley. Line
(1) goes through the lower pulley while
line (2) goes to the upper pulley.
D) Run each of the lines through
the barrel swivel, through the snap
swivel assembly and back through
the barrel swivel.
E) Tie a figure 8 knot and adjust
slack as needed. Attach swivel
assembly to the lower release clip.
Secure double pulley/bungee
assembly to pad eye. Remove slack
by sliding the lock swivel down and/
or cut off excess line on the outside
of locking swivel.
Loop must be
12" - 24"
