Default Outrigger Help

I have a 28 Pursuit and am looking for outriggers. Would 15ft or 18ft be better?

Personally I liked the 18's even on a 23' robalo... they were on the T-top and no chance of dipping a tip in the roughest seas... If you set them up right, no reason the 18's will be too long. If on a gunnel that leans outboard and they may drag a tip, the 15's may be the better choice... But that is just me... i like the extra width of the 18 footers and the additional "drop back" once the snap is popped....

18. Always go the biggest you can with them. Wider spreads don't tangle as badly in rough seas.

Also, just a quick edit note. Using bigger riggers keeps more of your line out of the water, since its coming down from a higher angle, which is definitely an advantage of fishing a large/charter boat. Tuned just right you can have just a few feet in the water on your shorts.
