Details

  • Big Jon's "Captain's Pak" Manual Siderigger is the toughest, best-built manual downrigger on the market. Many old fishermen refer to it as "The Workhorse of Manual Downriggers!" Indeed, our service department still takes in many 40 year old Captain's Pak manuals for basic maintenance!
  • The Captain's Pak manual siderigger features an easy to use "One-Hand-Crank" clutch system. Just ease the crank handle back to let the cannonball decend or crank forward to retrieve it.
  • Loaded with handy features, the Captain's Pak has as standard equipment: a swivel mounting base, a single Multi-Set rod holder, a Big Jon line release and a locking, tip-up sectional boom.
  • The high-strength swivel mounting base is machined from billet aluminum. It rotates 360 degrees and locks in eight positions so you can fish from almost any angle.
  • The Multi-Set rod holder is so easy to use, that you can adjust it to any of it's nine positions with just one hand!
  • The Band Buster line release is one of the simplest line releases you can find. Also, it is very popular because it signals when a fish strikes, by transmitting the action to the rod tip, making the rod tip bounce.
  • The locking, tip-up boom makes setting lines safe and easy. It is a three piece sectional boom that can be used as a 2, 3 or 4 foot boom to best meet your needs.
  • Also included with your Captain's Pak: a 4 inch x 4 inch mounting plate, a footage counter, and 200 feet of stainless steel cable.
  • This Big Jon downrigger has been given a bright anodized finish that will resist corrosion and add a beauty to your boat that plastic downriggers can not offer. When you choose Big Jon products, your boat will shine.

Targeting Spawning Bass: Are They Going to Bite?

This time of year, anglers all over are fishing for bass they can see in the shallows. Some bass will be easy to catch and some are nearly impossible, like those that are in the act of spawning instead of just guarding their beds. There are a few things that I do to determine if the fish is going to bite and if they are worth spending time fishing for. Locating Bedding Bass One of the best ways to find bedding bass is to cruise the shallows with your trolling motor at about 40 or 50%. I have found that this is the best speed to both cover water and avoid spooking fish. Anything faster will scare fish away long before you get to them.

Researchers Find Link Between Climate Change and Gastrointestinal Illnesses

In one of the first studies of its kind, Chris Uejio, an assistant professor at FSU, and a team of researchers studied how climate change can affect the roughly 20 million Americans (according to the Environmental Protection Agency) who consume untreated drinking water on a daily basis. Because climate forecasts are predicting higher rainfall rates over the next few decades, coming down in intense storms, Uejio said those flashes could cause flare-ups in waterborne illnesses.

Data Buoys Infographic

We put together this infographic on data buoys for our Spring 2017 edition of the Environmental Monitor ( PDF available online ). Organizations across the globe use data buoy systems to observe and monitor atmospheric and oceanographic conditions in remote locations. Measurements range from air pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction to wave height, water temperature, dissolved oxygen and other water quality parameters. With the help of national and international networks, reliable and comprehensive data sets are made available for research and public safety.
