Church portable Outriggers

These outriggers are great, though there was a bit of a learning curve involved to gain optimal performance.
I installed 2 rod holders approx 12" apart. I place the outrigger in the leading holder. The rod I use is a med action. This allows enough support and flexibility of the outrigger. I wrapped the outrigger handle at the base with pipe insulation and tape. This keeps the outrigger firm in the holder. I threaded 18" of 80# test, with a clip, through the butt. I clip it to the rod holder. The thread and clip keeps things from going away suddenly when it gets exciting.
I use a diver to gain some depth and a line counter to get best results from the diver. When setting the rig I have the end of the outrigger about 4-6" off the water.
I keep the clip tension just enough to hold the line and trolling gear. When a fish is on I quickly retract the outrigger and pop the clip.
Rod holder positioning is critical. The outrigger holder is almost flat while the holder for the rod is about 45deg or so. This could also depend on the height off the water which they are mounted.
For all my efforts I am bring in bigger fish than typically I do off my downriggers. By having the lure out and away is more likely to attract fish not disturbed by a passing boat. More area is covered when my partner and I have 2 outriggers and 2 downriggers running.

Great outriger for a small boat..

These outrigers are very good for a small boat. I use
them with my leadcore rods.
I swapped out the adjustable clips with yellow off shore clips.I tied a piece of 2 lb mono to the clip and put the loose end under the pad.Then i run my leadcore through the loop this way i can adjust the amount of line i let out without resetting the outriger. When the fish hits it pulls the tag end out of the releases pad...Then its Fish on.. I did have to wrap some electrical tape to the end that goes in the rod holder to keep it in it.

Church Tackle Portable Outrigger

These outriggers were light, compact, simple to operate and stayed in the rocket launcher perfectly at trolling speeds. They were perfect for light tackle live baiting (slow trolling or drifting)in a small boat for king mackerel. A little light to really pull ballyhoo.
The clip was a good concept, but difficult to adjust. It was always too tight. I would loosen it up to where the line easily broke from it in my hand, but after having it out for a brief troll, it would fail to trip with strikes.
I replaced them with a different style of clip, with the break away clip mechanism and didn't have any problems after that.
They are fragile. I have broken both of them, one by bending too much, and the other just got leaned on a little.

Not so satisfied

Not stiff enough to keep lines out as far as possible. Don't forget you'll need some sort of adapter to put them in a rod holder.
