Simply pull the outrigger halyard until the QDX hits the top outrigger eye. This causes the QDX to open, and releases the fishing line. RMR is ideal for slow trolling live bait. Since you can release the fishing line prior to hook set, you won’t have any slack line to contend with. The RMR feature also works great when you want to drop a bait back to a fish, or if you want to clear your outrigger lines when there is a fish on.
