I got a couple good deals on downriggers, and am looking for some recommendations for the best release for running big spinners and body baits at 3-5mph for muskies in the deeper waters of the shipping channels, upper DR, etc.

I would think a very "tight" release would be necessary to handle the resistance of the lures, and an adjustable release should be a plus. But I'm very new to this and don't know the best gear.

What do you recommend?

Any other tips would be much appreciated :fish:

I think I would try one of the larger Scotty Releases. They have two different settings, and you can fine tune them by how far you put the line into them.
