Scotty 1050 Depthmaster Masterpack 23 Manual downrigger
- Perfect size
- portable downrigger
- priced right
This is the best portable downrigger on the market. It mounts easily to the rail on the back of the boat and works great! Perfect size for my skiff. With the mount included I have no worries about it falling overboard. Works great! Was the combo I needed, works great, and was priced right. Works fine!
1st mine did come complete with clamp and rod holder. I needed light, compact, versatile, rugged and quick detach. Specifically for a motorized 16 ft canoe targeting lake trout down to 80 feet. The design of this unit allows mounting close to the center line of a canoe using a modified thwart. The horizontal spool allows either side use controlled from fore or aft. The result is 2 people can stack releases and troll deep out of a canoe hassle free. Heads up to Kayak users. With a base mounting point this should work on a Yak. Very useful on those NO MOTOR lakes. Slick working unit.
Scotty 1050 Depthmaster Masterpack includes an adjustable, boom-mounted Rod Master II Rod Holder and is rigged with a Quick-slide 1010 deck mounting bracket and a portable #1021 Clamp Mount. Features include a 23 inch, 3/4 inch in diameter, stainless steel boom, a spray protected, positive drive depth counter, a Power Grip Plus Line Release, and Quick-slide #1010 Deck Mounting Bracket. It features an automatic brake with the most disc brake surface on the market. In the event of a bottom hang-up, it will pay-out to avoid losing gear. It has a high speed, one foot per turn spool coupled with the extra leverage extension handles makes cranking a breeze. Includes 200 feet of premium 150 pound stainless steel downrigger cable. The Depthmaster Masterpack offers more value for the fisherman than anything else on the market. The price and operating features of this unit beats the competition hands down.
