Walker™ Mini Laker Downrigger
Purchased this downrigger for use on a tracker bass boat because I didn't want to drill any holes and this was one of very few options with a clamp mount. First , I had to fabricate some rubber pads to go on the clamps so that it wouldn't scratch up my paint. After mounting the downrigger and trying it out for the first time, the arm ended up being about 9" below the water line. With the weight attached, I had to reach over a foot down grab the weight to attach my line. It was ridiculous. The unit would work well if Walker had anticipated the need for a higher arm angle. This downrigger will only work on boats with high sidewalls. It won't work on a bass boat and nowhere on their website do they provide you with this convenient information. When I contacted Walker to see if they could re-work the hole angle for the arm, they told me to sell the unit I bought and purchase a different model of theirs! Incredible!
