I'm debating going from manual to electric downriggers. I'm curious if people use an additional battery for them or do you just hookup to your main starting battery? I can't really use my trolling motor batteries since that's not a 12 volt system. I do run a kicker so it would be charging a little bit from that.
My other question is that I would stack lines on one rigger. Is that easier to do with a slower retrieve vs a quick retrieve of the ball? I saw quite a difference in speeds between Big Jon and Cannon for instance. I was thinking I'd like it to be a little slower, but I have no experience with a downrigger that comes up very quickly either.
