    Very nice and well worth it!
    We use these downriggers to retrieve dredges offshore trolling. used with a block and tackle setup, this is an amazing piece to use. makes dredge fishing so much easier and that means more fish, hopefully!

    Years ago I started off with Scotty manual downriggers, and they worked. Switched to Cannon Mini-Mag 2’s. Definitely an improvement over manuals as most of my fishing is at 60′ plus. After 7 years, now upgraded to the Cannon Digi-Troll 5 Electric Downriggers and all I can say is – wow! The speed on the drop and retrieval, even from 130′ plus is excellent. Easy to program and the quality of build is what should be expected from Cannon Downriggers.

    I can tell you these are the best Downriggers I’ve ever owned

    I have a pair of w digi-troll 5 on a 17′ Alumaweld Stryker and fish Pyramid Lake on a regular basis. I can tell you these are the best Downriggers I’ve ever owned. I had Walkers that I returned to Cabellas and four Scotty downriggers collecting dust in my garage. I will be selling my Scotties on Craigslist. I don’t have a hummingbird fish finder and don’t really care about the integration. My fish finder is a Lowrance Gen3 and I wouldn’t trade it for hummingbird.

    Scotties use a free fall feature to drop the rigger weight and the lines pops the clip if your not careful. Cannon riggers lower the weight really smooth. I love the weight retrieve in the cannon, it’s attached to the downrigger and easy to pull a 10lb weight close to the boat. I don’t know much about the positive ion feature to attract more salmon but my catch rate has gone up. Yes, they are expensive but in my opinion, well worth the investment.

    IMO, the Digi-Troll 5 is the best downrigger out there, if you are willing to chunk out the $$ for the bling. I found a pair on craigslist earlier in the year, so I upgraded, but haven’t used them all that much with a hectic summer work schedule. I like the jig feature, and the auto up/down memory system is pretty slick too. I Haven’t bought the additional transducer to get the bottom track working, but it looks great for winter blackmouth.
