  2. I add a snap weight. 7’ deep per one ounce at 50’ up the line. Without weight a spoon will go 6’ deep with erratic speed. Add a 1oz weight and your down to 13’ or so. Seems to work. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. My favorite all around reel is the Okuma Convector CV30DS. I put the reel handle on the back hole. With that and the high speed feature, it is well suited for divers, short leadcores, or long lead walleye trolling. You can get lines in fast. For silver fish I like the Diawa Wilderness rods. For walleye, I like the Cabela’s Depthfinder telescopic rods. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I have a ball bearing swivel always on my mono mainline, then a leader pre-tied, with swivels on both ends, from a pool noodle. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I used Interstate 27s. Not bad, but when I had a chance to upgrade to 31s I did and there was a noticeable difference in useable hours...like 3 hours difference. I went from 5 hours to 8 hours. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. It didn’t take long. We have a 40’ flat in Frankfort MI that runs for miles. Auto pilot, set the dial, and slowly deploy. When it starts bouncing bottom record the line out number and the depth and speed. Set the dial again and repeat. You’ll figure it out. Doesn’t take long. The 2:1 ratio with the Ultimate Pack on a “1” setting was accurate. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I bought the dive charts from FishUSA. They are in my boat in the barn. When I go choring today, I’ll dig it out and get some data rolling. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I called U-Charter and they don’t have dive charts for the Ultimate Pack (7oz weight with ring). He said its a 2:1 ratio on a 1 setting. After that, he was just estimating. So, I did my own testing on the Ultimate Pack. On a 3 setting, you get 3:1. On a 6 setting you get 4:1. I did this using 50# PP and 2.5 SOG. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. When you have a slide diver on a wire setup, the last 50’ or so are a segment of Mono, flouro, or braid for the slide diver to slide on. What he means is the wire is reeled right up on the spool and the slider segment is “on the rod”, not the wire. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I went with magnum wire divers low and magnum slide divers on braid up high. Those guys are right. If you want to commit your wire to slide divers its a big commitment. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  13. My conversion to wire low divers wasn’t about water fleas, however, if that is one of the benefits, great. My conversion from braid to wire on the low divers was a potential electrical/acoustic signature difference, the sensitivity when you have a fish on, and the alleged deeper theory. All three of these reasons are hypothetical supported by anecdotal reports...but got hooked on the idea. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
