Downrigger cable replacement


Recommended Posts

I have a couple of older cannon electric downriggers and I need to replace the cable on one of them. I have been reading that a lot of people are going to braid instead of stainless steel cable. Just wondering what was best, I am fishing Lake Michigan Salmon and Trout. Thanks for any input.

I have always just used stainless steel cable for salmon and trout in Lake Michigan. Recently I tried out some nylon coated stainless steel cable that I really liked. I found in on a site I bought some replacement parts on for my cannon.

With Cannons remember your auto stop will not work with out steel cable! We still use stainless, we switched to the coated for a hot minute but it was not very good the coating came off pretty quick and got all jambed up! Go with stainless and get the cannonball snubbers!!

Just my 2 cents
