CONTROLLED DEPTH FISHING
Undoubtedly there are many fishermen familiar with the methods and use of controlled depth fishing. In the mid-1960s, the state of Michigan introduced Pacific salmon into the Great Lakes in an attempt to revitalize its sport fishing industry. From this successful transplant, new fishing techniques and equipment were developed. One such method was controlled depth fishing which enabled fishermen to place a lure at the desired depth by utilizing downriggers.
Because of the varying factors (water temperature, thermocline, weather, tides, time of day, or time of year), it is necessary for successful fishing to maintain specific water depths that coincide with fish movements and feeding patterns.
One essential feature of the downrigger is the depth meter or gauge that indicates lure depth. This allows the angler to control as well as return to specific depths where fish have been caught. Due to the success of controlled depth fishing, downriggers are now being used throughout the world to catch a wide variety of species in both fresh and salt water.
Whether fishing for blues off Rhode Island, walleyes in Lake Erie, sailfish off the coast of Florida, or stripers in Tennessee, the use of downriggers will make your fishing more successful and enjoyable.
