Scotty 1099 Electric downriggers are awesome! Well worth the money. I’ve always had Scotty hand cranker’s. Once you go electric you’ll never go back. So far, very good. easy to learn how to use and so much better than the hand operated ones. Used them 3 times without a problem. Perfect fit for my 14 ft aluminum fishing boat. Still working on installing the Scotty 1099 downrigger due to the fact you need to install a 30 amp inline fuse which is not included with the product. Since it needs to be marine grade, you can’t pick one up at the auto parts store. Of course, you don’t know you need it until you’re installing the downrigger. I just ordered the fuse from where else but Scotty, so I may get this thing up and running in a few days. Additional info. I used the downrigger during an excellent silver run in Puget Sound. I had always been a Penn fan but no longer. I love this downrigger. I’ve fished downriggers for the last 30 years or so and I think I have a pretty good idea on their pluses and minuses. I like fishing alone in my 16′ Lund …

This is the best, most affordable electric down rigging system I have seen on the market yet. Bought 2 and plan to get 2 more later this summer. Easy to use, mounted the brackets myself and have been reeling in the fish! Very fast retrieve,built solid,nice that it adj.down to 36″ I would recommend this to to anyone looking for a power downrigger. Also, if you need to return it. The hassle of sending it back, then waiting for a new one. You might be paying a little more buying local, but worth it in the long run. Trust me!
