Default Loving my center rigger

I installed Bly's removable center rigger back in March and I love it. It allows me to fish the wwb line at 150-165 yards and run another down the center at about 100-125 yards. This is all done with reels in the leaning post. It has been a very effective setup, this year. Also with all the grass we have had last three trips the wwb will trip if grass is on it. Just thought I would share it.

I got to use my CR really for the first time last weekend (not Blys). My rods are in a cockpit rocket launcher and I experienced a lot of creep back on the rigger (blacks clip). Did you have this same problem?

Rigger creep isn't necessarily a product of the riggers...more like the riggING

I love the center rigger on my boat too. As you mentioned it allows you to run a wwb line and also run a second line down the middle of you want. Some folks claim the center rigger is in the way...but I disagree.

Looks nice. Is there a certain angle to mount it?

Nope comes with a sleeve to fit snuggly in your rod holder. It takes me about 3 minutes to set it up to go.

Love mine as well, now the shotgun doesn't have to be off the hard-top where it was hard to reach and harder to get out with a fish on, we were going to lose a rod/reel sooner or later, makes the center rigger look cheap!

What am I checking for? New 400# mono, new blacks clip and a pulley on the tip of the rigger. The mono does have a little slack in it, should it be tight or even loser?

You have a pulley on the long end of the rigger? Just the mono, a clip a ball at the end and either a glass eye or pulley at the bottom of the rigger. My rigger line is spyder-line and its pretty snug. You do have a bungee of some sort also, right?

Yes, a pulley on the long end of the rigger (bought the boat with it that way). You're suggesting I should remove the pulley?

No ball either, I put a crimp in the middle of the blacks clip so it essentially serves as the stop (same as my outriggers). I do have a bungee connecting it to the tower leg.

Think I'll re-rig this with some para cord I have and bypass the pulley to see how that works next trip.

Thanks for the help!

Agreed, take the pulley off. You need some friction, otherwise you'll get the creep.

Am I reading that correctly, 165 yards behind the boat?

And it will trip if grass get's on it?
