Seahorse Kontiki Dropper Rig
Pioneered by Paul's Fishing systems, a dropper rig sets your hooks and baits on a separate line to the main (retrieval) line that runs from the Kontiki back to the winch. This give extra security as the baits are away from the retrieval line.
The Seahorse Dropper Rig is a separate line consisting of a carabina, strop, 10m break-away, 100m leader and stoppered section with 80 stoppers, stored on a light portable hand reel, with a short aluminium stand. The line is attached (with the carabina) that is also hooked onto the back of the kontiki, you can clips the traces on the stopper line as the kontiki pulls both lines out to sea.
On retrieval, the retrieval line is wound onto the winch, after removing the kontiki, the dropper rig is also wound onto the winch. This allows you to remove the traces in the normal manner. Following that, the dropper rig is transferred by winding it back onto the Dropper Rig hand reel.
The big advantage of the Seahorse Dropper Rig is it allows your hooks and baits to be on the separate line, plus it allow you to use your existing traceboard and traces.
The Seahorse Dropper Rig comes with 2 x 8 & 3 x 16oz weights for use on the Dropper Rig.
The Seahorse Dropper Rig can used with any kontiki unit, or winch.
