  2. Wiring Configuration: Each downrigger should have its own wiring with inline fuses. It is not mandatory to have both fuses and a circuit breaker.

  4. Wire Gauge: Use 10/2 wiring for leads of 15 feet or less for a single downrigger. For multiple riggers connected to a fuse/circuit panel, use 4 or 6 gauge wire as the main feed to the panel and 10 gauge wire from the panel to each rigger.
