In the early years of downrigger fishing, the "Big Water Manual" established itself as a standard for downriggers that were to be fished straight back behind the transom.
Loaded with handy features, the Big Water Manual has as standard equipment: a single rod holder mounted to the 20 inch flexible boom, and a Big Jon line release.
The large 8 inch reel makes retrieving the cannonball fast and easy.
The Band Buster line release is one of the simplest line releases you can find. Also, it is very popular because it signals when a fish strikes, by transmitting the action to the rod tip, making the rod tip bounce.
Also included with your Big Water Manual: a 4 inch x 4 inch mounting plate, a footage counter, and 200 feet of stainless steel cable.
All Big Jon downriggers are given a bright anodized finish that will resist corrosion and add a beauty to your boat that plastic downriggers can not offer. The bright silver finish will make your boat shine.
