Scotty 1073 Laketroller

Scotty 1073 Laketroller 2

The unit is well-built and provides sturdy enough support for a 3-4 lb. weight. The holder can be mounted sideways against the gunnel just like Scotty’s popular rod holders, so it is very convenient. However, if you have an aluminum boat and mount directly to the side, the motor vibrations can transfer directly down the …

Cannon Mini-Troll

Cannon Mini-Troll 3

I purchased my original mini troll well over ten years ago and have purchased two since so that my boys can now downrigger for trout with me. We use them off a 16ft alumicraft and just attach them to the sides. I really like them and was not able to find one this size that …

Cannon Lake-Troll

Cannon Lake-Troll 4

Cannon Lake-Troll are great value manual downriggers for Lakes. I bought a pair and used them recently. The biggest complaint I read from reviews was the depth counter on the boom and inability to calibrate. I recently did some salmon trolling with these and had no issue with the depth counters. They reported depths accurately. …

Cannon Easi-Troll ST

Cannon Easi-Troll ST 5

Looked at many different downriggers and decided to go with the Easi-Troll ST and have zero regrets after several fishing trips with them. If I was getting picky, I wish Cannon would give you the option to buy the swivel base as standard instead of the standard mount it comes with. As a whole, I …

This downrigger seems to be well built. Materials seem sturdy and build quality is good. The only thing I wasn’t happy about was the packaging. Item was shipped in its box which had damage. Fortunately the downriggers itself showed no damage. Came with mounting hardware easy to install – works great. Scotty Manual Downriggers include …
