Outriggers allow the bait to be placed in the wake of the boat, giving the bait a more life-like action which fish are more likely to strike. Outriggers allow you to increase the number of lines being trolled, since up to two lines can be used on each outrigger (by installing dual pins), plus a separate flat line on each side of the boat.
