I've read about this for some time now and finally got around to doing a test. I guess it's best to be around .600, from what I've read. This test was done with metal downrigger cable. My question is, I have spectra on two of my downriggers and I was wondering if that would eliminate the voltage problem if you're trolling 20-30 feet down or more? The balls are rubber coated too. Any ideas?

a black box is not needed on rigger lines made of spectra. It's sort of hard to get an electrical current to run down spectra line. Of course they can be of use on any rigger using wire cable.

I kinda figured that, but thought it best to double check. So....how far from the boat can you expect the electrical field, if it's out of range, to have any effect on fishing? Let's say that you're trolling lures/no downriggers. Has anyone came up with any info with that scenario?
