Chinook Diver?

Recommended Posts

I purchased a Chinook Diver recently and wondered if anyone here has any experience with them. This was the first time id ever seen them so i dont know if they are new this year. Quite impressed with them. Seems like they will pull hard and offer little resistance when tripped. Hoping maybe they will make some different acoustics in the water compared to a standard diver. Just something else to try or maybe just more gear that i dont need. :) thoughts on this item? thanks, mark

That depth chart shows some pretty good depths. 2:1 Ratio-Line to Depth. I dont know what size i have as they are not marked. I got mine at slippery sinker in Olcott.

I have the #5 and love the thing they dive way better and a lot easier to reel in.

i fished with a charter this past weekend and he showed them to me and we had a dipsy rod set with it, pretty nice set-up. i really like the fact that you don't need to let out a ton of line to achieve the depths.

Looking forward to trying these out. Sent an email to the company about the sizing of these divers and they got back to me right away.

The inventor of these divers is a charter captain from Rochester....his boat is docked three docks away from me....a true gentleman and a die hard fisherman. I'm sure you will be happy with them.

Just picked up a couple of each size and met the owner,very nice guy and a great product. These are by far the best dipsys on the market!

I am debating buying some, with having the standard size dipsies, I think the size #5 would be more beneficial as they dive the deepest, any thoughts?

#5 will get you deep for sure but I grabbed all sizes so I have all depths covered from shallow to deep.

Chinook divers cut through the water when tripped so you are fighting the fish not the dipsy

post is a little old but thought I would share   I have run them for two years I only have a pair of size 4 and a pair or #5 divers.   I don't even have any dipsy divers on the boat anymore.   the only negative thing I have run into is the holder part of the release on the diver itself gets bent after a hard hit and does not dive well when redeployed and have to bend it back to dive true again   its only happened twice to us. I will be getting another set over winter
