To exploit an electrical charge to catch fish, there are a few criteria which must be watched. Indeed, even without a Black Box there is “normal” voltage created on a downrigger wire that can fundamentally help the downrigger proprietor in improving his catch. With or without a Black Box, the accompanying advances ought to be watched.
1, The downrigger spool and hardened steel link must be protected from the vessel structure. This enables a characteristic voltage to be created on the link. Most downriggers with plastic spools are protected by the maker. A few producers purposefully associate the downrigger link to the pontoon’s electrical framework as a methods for halting the recover when the downrigger weight breaks the water surface. This does something contrary to what you need. A high voltage is set on the downrigger wire which repulses fish.
2, Check the zinc conciliatory anodes on the pontoon and on your detachable or outdrive. In the event that they are over half disintegrated, they ought to be supplanted. On the off chance that they have a covering of sludge or development, this ought to be wiped off. Utilize a hardened steel brush or a non-metallic scrubber so the zinc isn’t sullied with a remote material. New zinc anodes should meet MIL-SPEC MIL-18001. (Zinc, – 0.1% cadmium and – .025 aluminum)
3, Exposed lead downrigger loads more often than not deliver an unsafe charge. Debasements that are available ahead of the pack cause the issue. Scrap lead from auto wheel loads can be especially awful on the grounds that it contains antimony (tin). The best practice is to utilize just covered loads. Vinyl or powder covered loads are promptly accessible available, or you can paint or vinyl plunge them yourself to protect them.
4, Try not to utilize a metal snap to interface the downrigger link to the downrigger weight. Utilize a nylon snap snare or associate the weight with a short bit of monofilament to protect the weight from the link. On the off chance that the lead weight is snared legitimately to the steel downrigger link, a different and frequently destructive electric field will be set up.
5, On the off chance that your downrigger link is over 2 years of age and has been worked intensely in saltwater, it might have turned out to be scratched from galvanic activity. This implies it has been exhausted both electrically and physically and ought to be supplanted.
6, Some anglers endeavor to make the right voltage by creasing zincs on their downrigger wire or by setting copper or different metals close to their baits. This isn’t fitting. Frequently, a zone of unsafe voltage will be set up some place in the framework. It’s ideal to keep your links and loads as “spotless” as would be prudent and afterward get the right voltage from the Black Box.
