Outrigger Unlimited - Product Review
Outriggers have long been reserved for the big boat fishermen. The folks at Outrigger Unlimited have come up with a unique solution that makes them available to any boat owner that has a rod holder. The cost is less than $400 per pair and the quality is exceptional. Here are just some of the features:
- Easy assembly in just minutes, no tools needed
- Easily adjustable safety/support line that adds stiffness to the boom and can also be used for fine adjustments
- Includes two 4-ft boom sections and one of them is optional. which allows the angler to choose the perfect spread width
- Strong enough to handle even the biggest spreader bars
- Easy loading of line into the clip simply by swinging the rigger forward and inboard
- Most rods can be placed directly into the outrigger, leaving other rod holders free
- High quality strong non-corrosive aluminum construction with one year guarantee
- Disassembles in seconds for compact storage
Other OutRigger Considerations
- They do not include line clips, a simple roller clip on a snap is the best solution
- Most rod holders have inserts that may need to be removed to allow for the diameter of the outrigger base
- Though a zero degree rod holder is recommended, these work just as well in angled rod-holders
- Some rod butts may be too big to fit into the rod holder in the rigger, and will need to go into another holder
- O-rings are used at each of the joints and are great at ensuring that the sections can easily be unscrewed. However, they can be removed to add additional stiffness.
Big Boat Applications for Outrigger Unlimited
These are a very clever alternative for the small boat owner, but they also have big-boat applications. They are the perfect solution for flatlines. Because the length of the boom can be adjusted, it is easy to get the perfect placement. They are just as easy to use as stern-mounted flatline clips. For boats with a narrow beam, the additional spacing makes for a more effective center rigger lure placement. These are also perfect for drift-fishing and slow-bump trolling.

“I was excited about these outriggers the moment I saw them online. I was even more excited when they arrived. Despite the fact I had built them up in my mind, they far exceeded my expectations. Regular outriggers can be a pain especially when fishing alone or in a rough sea. These outriggers were absolutely perfect and were so easy to use that we did several trips and kept the big riggers holstered!” Capt Andy LoCascio
