Default Help in downrigger selection/placement

Hi !
Im new to striper fishing. I have a brand new 16' fishing dory called an Amesbury16 made by Stur-De-Boat Co. in Rhode Island. Its just a basic tiller model with a 25 HP. I live within easy driving distance to places like Elephant Butte , Colorado River , Lake pleasant , Lake Powel. I have heard of guys using downriggers. I have to stick with the manual models , and plan on buying 2.
What is the best location to mount them , stern or sides ? What brand should I buy , and what capacity is the minimum as far as depth?
Any thoughts ? Do I even want to mess with them ? Im dead serious about fishing....just new to this aspect.
