Cannon Digi-Troll 10 TS details:
Cannon Digi-Troll 10 TS is by far the most advanced and best electric downrigger that you can get. There is a lot of technology built into the Cannon Digi-Troll 10 that is designed with one thing in mind and that’s to help you catch more fish. What’s great about the Cannon Digi-Troll 10 is we have features built in to improve every aspect of controlled depth fishing.
For example, when we’re setting up our lines, we have dual access rod holders for perfect rod positioning. In addition we have a 360 degree swivel base which allows us to perfectly position the electric downrigger to optimize our trolling spread. One of the great things about the Cannon Digi-Troll 10 is we have a removable side plate.
This gives us easy access to the spool, so if we have a tangle in our cable, or if we want to switch to a different type of cable, we can simply take one spool off put a new one on and keep fishing. From a technology standpoint the Cannon Digi-Troll 10 has the ability to store five preset depths.
So if we know what depth we’re going to be fishing or if the fish are always at the same depth we can pre-program. Ming five deaths into the Cannon Digi-Troll 10 when we’re ready to drop our weight, we can simply select one of those depths and the downwarder will automatically drop our way to that depth.
There’s also an extendable boom to keep your lines farther out from the side of the boat. Now that our lines are set and we’re ready to start fishing. I want to show you some of the things that the Cannon Digi-Troll 10 can do. To lower our weight, we have an integrated keypad with a built-in LCD screen that gives us a very accurate depth reading.
As we lower the weight we can adjust our speeds for even better bait presentation than is our weight reaches the desired depth we have a soft stop feature built-in to prevent any potential cable damage. Now that our beta is in position, there’s some really cool things that we can do with the Cannon Digi-Troll 10.
We have a depth cycle feature that allows us to adjust our bait between two different depths at a preset time interval. It gives our beta more natural swimming motion. Also using a separate transducer, we can tell the Cannon Digi-Troll 10 to keep our bait a set distance from the bottom.
So as the bottom contours change the Cannon Digi-Troll 10 will always. Adjust then we can network multiple digital tends together So I can control two three four electric downriggers all from one unit. And while we’re fishing the enclosed boom and prevents line from jumping off the pulley and getting tangled. Once a fish hits or you’re ready to change lures the auto up button on the keypad will automatically retrieve your weight to 250 feet per minute. You can even stop the retrieve below the water line to prevent the weight from swinging.
Cannon Digi-Troll 10 TS features a backlit LCD screen which displays readings from IntelliTroll, lets you raise and lower the weight, adjust Positive Ion Control, or program the amount of line you’re using. Cycle the weight up and down at preset intervals and depths, or use Bottom Track to automatically keep your bait at a preset distance from the bottom. Stainless steel spool, fastest retrieval rate on the market (250 feet per minute) and a Short-Stop feature that protects the boat from swinging weight.
Includes mounting base, low-profile swivel base, and a telescopic boom that extends from 24″ to 53″. Digi-Troll is built tougher and smarter to make you a better angler. Cannon Edge Design features fewer moving parts, one-piece composite construction, a redesigned boom end, protected circuit boards, and easy access to the spool, switches, plugs and mounting knobs.
Cannon Digi-Troll 10 TS Depth Cycle Feature:
Let’s talk about the depth cycle feature on the Cannon Digi-Troll 10 downriggers – With the depth cycle feature, you can alternate the depths of your tackle between two different depths at a preset time interval. What this means to the fishermen is you can really target the fish if they’re suspended at different depths.
So, for example, if you’re fishing in 60 feet of water and you’re marking fish between 25 and 35 feet, you can program your electric downrigger to go up and down between 25 and 35 at a preset time interval. So that you’re sure that you’re keeping your tackle in front of the fish at all times.
The way this works is you simply go into the menu function on your Cannon Digi-Troll 10. I’ll select my time interval. So, I’m going to select five seconds. Then I’ll select my down depth, so I’m going to select 35 feet. And then I’m going to set my up depth to 25 feet.
And then I simply hit run. Now every five seconds the electric downrigger is going to alternate between 25 and 35 feet. So right now this is going down to 35. And we’re there and now in five seconds you’ll see it come up to 25 feet.
And the electric downrigger will continue to do this every five seconds until we take it out of the cycle mode. Another great feature with depth cycle is it allows you to go in and actually optimize the cycle to help entice more strikes. So, for example, if you’re in a light bite situation where it’s really hard to get the fish to hit you can go in and change the speeds individually on both the up and the down to help optimize your bait presentation.
So I can go into menu. I’m going to select my up speed to be very fast and my down speed to be very slow. Now what this is going to do is it’s going to raise my downrigger weight extremely fast and when it drops back down, it’s going to come down very slowly.
And a lot of times it’s this erratic action. It’s a change in speed and the erratic change in depth that might help entice a strike in a light bite situation. It’s just one more tool to help put more fish in the box.
The most important feature of the Cannon Digi-Troll 10 electric downrigger and that’s bottom track. When you add a transducer to this downrigger what you get is feature that has been responsible for more fish hit the deck of this boat than any other I can think of.
Basically what bottom track does is through use of a transducer keeps your downrigger weight a set distance off the bottom. Now here we’re on the West Coast when we targeting Chinook. Keeping your gear close to the bottom major keeping your gear near the bait and that. For the Chinook are gonna be found So basically we need to set three parameters in order for bottom track to work That’s gonna be maximum depth of the rigger to bottom track. It’s gonna be distance off bottom and it’s gonna be sensitivity. Let’s look at the display on how these three features are set and how you can put them to work for you to catch more fish.
So when we first turn on our electric downrigger, we see sonar depth on the on the home screen and that’s gonna tell us the how we have a transducer hooked up and that’s wonderful. So we’re gonna get the menu button in the first thing we see is max bottom. That tells us the distance the depth that we’re gonna track bottom maximum depth and that’s important. So then we press the select key and we should see distance off bottom as we roll that down.
Now, we can get close to the business end of our fishing range we can even go into negative numbers and that’s gonna keep that’s gonna count for blowback and keep the downrigger weight very very close to the bottom. We hit select the final time to get to this sensitivity part of the menu.
That’s the distance that the downrigger weight will react to when bottom changes. So once again, we hit menu sensitivity hits the select button. Gives us max bottom hit the select button distance off bottom and that’s the part of the menu that I leave the electric downrigger on to go ahead and and and change. That’s the feature we’re going to change more often is the distance off bottom.
One more thing I want you to consider when we’re using the bottom track function on our Cannon Digi-Troll 10 and that is the realization we need to have a reels and the electric downrigger work together and here’s how that works when the electric downrigger gets deeper we want to set our drags, so your your real automatically let line out as we get deeper.
I’m ate that we need to use Cannon offshore red double spring releases instead of the Cannon offshore black medium tension, single spring releases. By using the Cannon red offshore double spring you’ve got to release the. Full drag tension off your reel and let your gear get deeper and do so with new so hands-free.
Then all we need to do is when we start getting shallower is we just go back and and reel up on our on a real to keep that tension. That’s your dirty downrigging trick and that’s how you’re going to be able to bottom track your way into a lot more fish when fishing close to the bottom.

Cannon Digi-Troll 10 TS Reviews:
Best Downrigger on the market
I bought 4 of these units for my new fishing boat. They are awesome!! On the maiden launch of the new boat I got distracted with all the new equipment and snagged one of the downriggers on some sharp rocks below. Couldn’t figure out how to get the trolling motor auto pilot to disengage and in horror I grabbed the downrigger just as the inertia of the boat ripped it from it’s mounting base and as it was heading for the bottom of the lake. It was a lot of force but I was able to hang on just long enough for the boat to come to a stop. I sent the whole thing back to the factory & told them what I had done. It came back within a week and with an entirely new outer casing and new base mounting bracket and a note that said “No Charge!” I couldn’t believe it!!! I guess Cannon even warranties “stupid!” So for new users, the lesson I quickly learned is make sure your clutch tension is loose enough that should you snag something with with your weight it won’t pull the downrigger off it’s mounting bracket. The Cannon Digi Troll 10 are amazing and all of mine are linked together. I am going to purchase the water temp sensor as well.
Best Downrigger Ever!
This Downrigger is everything promised — and they promised it was the best downriver ever made! It does everything promised, and does it easily. There is NO LEARNING CURVE! The optional transducer is necessary for the bottom tracking feature. Order one if you will be hunting bottom dwelling fish. Be sure to buy the weight retriever unless you already have one. I am a little surprised one wasn’t included as that is needed to use these as easily as they can be.
I purchased one of these downriggers early in 2017 and used it the entire fishing season on Lake Huron. I liked the ability to program depths where the downrigger automatically stops when lowering the weight and the auto stop just below the surface on the retrieve. Initially, the wire line on the retrieve tended to pile up on one side of the spool, but after running the line through the wire eye that is furnished for connecting the downrigger weight when not in use, the line spread evenly on the spool. The eye helped center the line on the spool. I was happy with this downrigger so I bought this second one so I will have 2 of them for the 2018 fishing season.
Top of the Line Downrigger
Expensive but lots of extra features.
Pros – Allows variable rate of descent with motor which other cannon downriggers do not
Cons – Should come with second rod holder like the lower priced Cannon Digi-Troll 10 (non TS). It’s a cannon thing, not sure why they leave it out. So I’m leaving out 1 star.
Trolling made easy
The bottom track is unreal, keeps your bait right in the fish column.
These are awesome. The bottom track help us catch fish when none others could not.
Pros – The cycle up and down will trigger a bite when the fishing is tough.
Not a bad price for the outcome and performance of this downrigger! Truly amazing
