Week 2 – Dipsy Divers,
Dipsy’s are also a very common tool to getting baits down deep and away from your boat. If you have fish in the 20 to 40ft depth range, then a great way to get a shallow diving bait down to your targeted fish (without the expense of a down rigger) would be to get some dipsy divers. Each Dipsy Diver costs between $12-$19 and all the packages come with a chart explaining exactly how much line you need to put out behind your boat and at which angle you put your dipsy to reach your desired depth. There are settings to each dipsy diver, this allows you to either push the dipsy (or Bait) out to the RIGHT or the LEFT side of the boat as it dives down. You could aslo position it so that it dives straight down below the boat, the packages all explain how this is done. Personally when using Dipsys I like to run them off to the side as to get the lures away from the noise of the motor when running over top of the fish. Once you have a fish hit the bait, the dipsy diver has a release clip this allows the diver to immediately go limp and straighten out so that you have little to no extra drag in the water and its only you and the fish. The only issues with these great tools is that if the release clip triggers with no fish on it you must reel it all the way to the boat to set it and send it back out, also it is not all that small so it may spook wary fish.
