In many parts of the country, especially fresh water but salt also, I see people using downriggers to get the lure down to the fish and fish different parts of the water column. Around Long Island I see very few downriggers being used. Seems to me they would be a better way than wire or drails, or extremely long lines trolled to get the lures down. I assume that there are good reasons why they are not used around here and would love to know what they are. Thanks guys.
