  4. Yes, run the leadcore like you described. 1 color will sink to about 5 ft at 2mph, less if your going faster. Depth will also vary on what lure you are running at the end of your leader. Sent from my LM-G820 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. You are correct. I found a few of the 4oz weights at a local shop and then made a mold so I can make more whenever I buy new divers. I went to the trouble of doing that so I could get them to dive like my previous divers. If I didnt fish for walleye so much I would not have done so. The lite bite feature works great for eyes.

  6. The standard weight in the slide divers is around 3 oz. They sell an accessory weight kit that includes a 2oz and 4 oz weight set. When I swapped out the standard weight for the heavier 4 oz weight I was able to achieve 3:1 dive rate that compared to the walker deeper divers I have used in the past. The standard weight did not have the same dive rate and was less. Again, this is on my boat with both wire and braid divers confirmed with a TD. Your results may vary.

  7. I bought some at the end of summer last year to try out primarily for the lite bite function since i fish for walleye most of the time. Near the end of the year when the eyes were deep my buddies were catching them with 200ft of line out on regular dipseys and i had to let out 250 ft with the Slide Divers to get bit. I ended up buying a Fishhawk TD because like you, i did not think they were diving as deep as the chart said. The Fishawk TD confirmed my suspitions. I would not bother running them without the large ring on them. I found that with the large ring they ran closer to similar depths as the walker deeper divers that i am used to running. I tested the running depths on the slide divers on multiple days, in different directions conditions to come up with a chart that i feel reasonbly comfortable in. I found that on some days i didn't matter how much line you let out they would not dive deeper than a certain depth. Also, there will be times that divers on opposite sides of the boat will be running at 5-8 feet different depths with the same amount of line out. A fishhawk TD will really open your eyes to what is really going on down there.

  9. You can use the lite bites as a regular slide diver by not putting the line through the lite bite arm thus bypassing that feature. They will still function fine. Sent from my LM-G820 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
