What are the mounting options for outriggers?

    Outriggers can be mounted on the side or top of a cabin, on radar or fishing arches or on the gunwale. On simple mounts, pulling a pin will drop the outrigger pole from vertical to the trolling position. Adjustable T-top mounts like the Sidewinder angle the outrigger outboards for trolling by turning a handle on the inside of the cabin ceiling. For storage and running, the pole swings into a straight-back position. Some mounts offer incremental adjustments to the vertical angle and a lay-down feature, which places the pole down horizontally in a straight-back position to pass under low bridges. It's recommend backing outrigger mounts with heavy gauge aluminum plates if you fish heavy tackle and rough water.
