Best Outrigger Pole: Carbon Fiber or Aluminum? Plus, Step-by-Step How to Rig it.

Tele-Outrigger poleThe best outrigger poles are carbon fiber because they are much stronger and lighter than any  aluminum pole on the market today. Why does that matter? Taco Marine’s carbon fiber outrigger poles easily pull dredges of ballyhoo, mullet or squids through the water at high speeds – which is difficult to do with aluminum poles.

Plus, only Taco Marine’s carbon fiber outrigger poles have an innovative swivel roller design mechanism that pulls the bait into a more natural swimming action. What’s more, it’s easy to rig, telescopes to less than 8 feet and includes a nylon mesh carry bag to protect the poles. For more information about these innovative award-winning poles, click here on Carbon Fiber Poles.

The Taco Marine step-by-step video below shows you how to set up the outrigger cords, attach the swivels and pulleys, set the tension on the poles, install the outrigger cords to the gunnel as well as how and where to attach your fishing line.
