 >  > Roemer Releases

The Roemer Release was developed to meet the many demanding functions required for successful fishing with downriggers and outriggers. After more than 20 years on the market, the Roemer Release has earned a reputation for its simplicity, dependability, and stacking ability. Today, the Roemer Release has been widely accepted from coast to coast and internationally!

This release is available in Black.

Key Benefits of the Roemer Release include:
  • Does not damage or twist line
  • Allows lure to be trolled any distance from release with easy distance change capabilities
  • Has simple attachment anywhere on the downrigger cable
  • Handles various test weights of fishing lines
  • Adjustable tension settings for different lure combinations such as Dodger, Flasher, and plug combinations used in Salmon and Trout fishing
  • Endures adverse conditions such as salt water, large lures, and faster trolling speeds
  • Adjustable even for small flutter spoons
  • Release the lure from boat any time you want to! For example, when fighting a large fish you would like all the lures up and out of the way
  • Stacks automatically when trolling weight is retrieved
  • Any number of Roemer Releases can be used on a single cable!

Use this release on downrigger to catch halibut. The only kind that won't trip too easily when there isn't a fish on the line and the only one that does release the line when a fish is on. I've used every other kind made!

Pros: Easy To Use, Quality Construction, Easy To Install

Cons: none

Best Uses: Pontoon Boats, Small Boats, Sailing, Large Boats

I am from Maine and have been fishing for many years. I had 2 of the Roemer releases, but I sold my last boat and let them go with it. Good for the guy who bought the boat, but bad for me. I have been looking for many years to find this product, as I had forgotten the name of the product. I have tried many releases in the past. but have not been satified with them. I like the way the Roemer releases, and the way you can change the distance from the ball with the Roemer. This will be the last time I let them get away from me.

Pros: Quality Construction, Easy To Use, Easy To Install, Attractive Design

Cons: none

We used these things years ago with a lot of success. Bought some to use with some new Big Johns, getting back into fishing on Lake Ontario. Easy to use when stacking, but they do take some practice when adjusting trigger tension. I'm not a big fan of using rubberbands.

Pros: Easy To Install, Easy To Use, Quality Construction

Cons: None

Best Uses: With any downrigger
