  1. I have the same steering on my boat and that is the fill tube. I included a picture of mine with the cap removed. I think what you are describing is normal steering. It will be easy out of the water but is definitely heavier while under load and is normal due to the prop and water resistance. Sent from my LM-G820 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  3. Does anyone know what kind of tree this is?. They are growing In all of the open areas of a previously logged woodlot. Sent from my LM-G820 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  5. If you snap the weight on your leader you will loose the whipping action of leadcore. It is best to snap it on the leadcore near the backing to leadcore connection. Sent from my LM-G820 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Just leave it alone. After a while the deer wont even look at it once they get accustomed to it. Sent from my LM-G820 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  10. 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
  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  15. 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

  21. It gives temp readings in 5 ft increments or it can be set at max depth to find the running depth of ur lures to the foot. Sent from my LM-G820 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  22. You have plenty of time because it times out after 45 seconds. I used it to test my leadcores by letting out the cores and then clipping on the TD and letting it slide down to the lure and then checking the max depth. I tested the slide divers on a 1 and 3 setting on several different days and in different directions On the same days to confirm the readings. I switched to the lite bites because i primarliy fish for walleye on erie and they trip everytime so you wont drag any small fish around. If i only fished ontario for kings i probably would not have switched from my deeper divers. Sent from my LM-G820 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  23. I tested both wire line and 40 lb braid. I used the larger ring on the divers when i tested them to try and replicate the size of my deeper divers that i was used to using. All you have to do is let your diver out to whatever line amount you want to test then clip on the TD and let it slide down the line to the diver on its own. I would either hold the rod parallel to the water or place it in the rod holder parallel to the water. It was easy to tell when it reached the diver becuase the rod top would start bouncing. When it does, just pop the diver and reel in the diver and look at the reading on the TD to see the max depth. The only issue i ever had was when i went thru the motions of testing it with say 200 ft of line out only to find out that the TD didnt reset and would have to start the process all over again.

  24. While using a fish hawk TD i have found that their published dive charts are not accurate at all. The actual depth with the standard diver approaches 3.4, 3.5:1. Sent from my LM-G820 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
