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.

Army Corps of Engineers Protects River Wildlife

A complex series of locks and dams up and down the Ohio River enable interstate commerce, travel and recreation by maintaining a usable pathway for watercraft, but come with the inevitable byproducts of disrupting the river’s natural systems. To combat this, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers uses a complex monitoring and response technology designed to minimize the negative impacts of dredging on the river ecosystem. Steven Foster, a limnologist with the Corps Water Quality Team, works at the Robert C. Byrd Lock and Dam in Gallipolis Ferry, West Virginia. He said one key area he focuses on is the welfare of mussels in the river. River dredging can smother mussel beds, so Foster and the team of engineers monitor the beds to ensure their safety.

Researchers Track Glacial Meltwater On Its Surprising Journey

While the scientific community has formed its consensus on how ice sheets are shrinking in and around Greenland, some researchers are tracking what happens to the meltwater as it drains into the ocean each summer. Their study, published in Nature Geoscience by an interdisciplinary team of biologists, oceanographers and hydrologists, used computer models to simulate the meltwater to see where currents take it and what effect it could have on the ocean. Renato Castelao, one of the researchers and an associate professor of marine science for the University of Georgia, said one of the biggest discoveries of the study was the surprising final destinations of the ice sheets as they melt into the ocean each summer.

Ice Fishing With A SondeCAM Underwater Fishing Camera

Thinking of hitting the ice with a SondeCAM underwater fishing camera? Due to its rugged design, you won't have to worry about it handling the harsh elements. However there are a few simple tricks to get the most out of a FishSens SondeCAM while ice fishing. You won't have to do anything to modify the SondeCAM itself, but you are going to have to bring a few extra things. Most importantly we are going to need a power source. Unless you are hauling your gear with a truck, you'll want something more portable than the battery you used in the boat. Pick up an inexpensive and maintenance-free 12-volt, 9-amp battery. It is going to provide plenty of power, but will be much lighter and take up less space.
