I found it on another post. They are 2 inch Lee Wishbones. Sorry about that. They look great. I mounted the Rupp Z30 Top Guns on my 23SE this pat summer. Great base units but the poles are a little too flimsy for towing the large squid bars.

Thanks for the outrigger porn Doc! 8)

I'd love to have me a set of 2" Lee Wishbones with 19' poles...
Maybe next year. :)

Looks like I'll be running my FlatLine booms for at least another year.





I can't complain. They work!

What do you do with the boom's when fighting a fish Kev?
The booms stay were they are normally.
When the release clip snaps, the line goes aft and the fish can be brought to the boat.
Rockfish don't take off like tuna, so there isn't any need to chase the fish forward.

If you did need the room to bring a fish alongside, you could grab that mono shock line that is anchored on the spring cleat and pull the boom which will rotate it forward, unlocking it from the rod holder pin, then you can just lift it out and place it under the washboard with one hand.

They actually work pretty well for what they are.

ROCKFISH,
DO YOU TROLL FOR TUNA WITH THOSE BARE POLES. I FORGET YOU GUYS CALL STRIPERS ROCKFISH. I DON'T KNOW IF THOSE POLES ARE HEAVY ENOUGH TO TROLL A SPREADER BAR WITH 18 INCH SQUID ON IT. THEY DO LOOK AWESOME ON YOUR BOAT THOUGH.

Looks like the outrigger mounts made for T-Tops would work on Parker cabin boats without restricting bow access (Rupp Top Guns?).

Someday you might want to tow to Keys and chase some sails and dolphin around the boat!.

Kev,

Have you considered a set of these?



I've had them on both boats and they work great. Same effect as your flatline booms, but you gain a line in the water. Once I double up one each rigger, I'll be able to pull 10+ lines without having to use those goofy planar boards. :)

Rock=rockfish=striper=striped bass

Actually I haven't used the outriggers for striper yet... all I've done this year with stripers are to drift eels. I'll probably troll offshore this Wednesday but likely leave the outriggers home and only troll about 4 or five lines.

The mounts and 2 inch poles are quite stout but the heaviest thing I've trolled was a spreader bar with 9 inch squids at the halfway point. I mostly use things like green machines, naked ballyhoo and islanders and such.

I am not sure why one would hang poles from a leash. I have rod riggers that hold two lines. They work well. I can roll 7 lines without (as gw204 calls them) goofy planer boards. However, I will be trolling planer boards this spring and trolling ~12 lines :lol:

Here are the rod riggers I have shown in use during some early summer chumming.

I guess the same reason one would use a rod with the rod crossed....just like yours....to be different....

The upriggers work as a flatline without the use of a clip on the transom hooks or using a downrigger with a weight. So I have a flatline out and then a line like the back rod holder...
