  8. https://www.tacklehaven.com/slide-diver-adjustable-trolling-diver-choose-your-size-color/ I like the big ones, because you can run long leads no reason to go small in skinny water. Buy some mag rings as well. Caught a bunch of fish in 40 feet of water. 50 feet out with 100 foot leads will put you about 20 down. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  9. If you’re asking about the brand of braid I don’t think it matters. Color doesn’t matter either. IMO Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  10. Sorry but not familiar with the finger lakes. On Ontario I run 100 lb braid. I used to run 80 but when I respooled last year the 80 I found was only in 300 yard spools and I wanted at least 400 per reel. The reason for the heavy test is wanting a similar line diameter to 30lb mono or bigger to keep the mid summer fleas at bay. The braid goes through the dipsy to a barrel swivel and I use fluorocarbon mono to the lure. One rod is for Spin Dr fly/meat. That one gets 80lb leader. Other rod is for spoons which get 20 or 30 lb fluorocarbon leaders. There is no more blow back with 100 lb braid than 30lb mono. Mono stretches, braid does not. When you clear your rods it’s simple with braid. Pain in the ass with mono. Nothing better than a big king smashing a dipsy. Violent!! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  11. Beauty of Slide Divers is the length of line between the dipsy and the lure can be as long as you want. Total game changer. When the dipsy releases it slides down to the swivel above the lure. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
