What is this called (dual Penn No. 49's mounted)?

5 posts in this topic

Two Penn No.49 Deep Sea reels mounted on a plate for mounting on the gunnel. I've had this for years, but forgot about it. Left and right-handed reels. What is the purpose of mounting these reels in this way, and is there a name for this setup?

They are mounted like that to be used for trolling teaser rigs on outriggers...that's why they aren't mounted to rods. They weren't used for fishing, the teasers wouldn't have hooks in them, they were dragged to create disturbance and draw fish to the boat. There are other similar uses, like for using kites to get baits away from the boat but keep them near the surface.
