Chinook brand dipsey's

Recommended Posts

I have 3 of the Chinook Brand in #3-#4...Are these supposed to swing out away from the boat 10-15' or so ? No matter what setting I have the sinker on mine don't swing out far at all. Is there a trick like tweeking the bottom fin(that attaches to the line/lure) that needs adjusting...i feel these are way to close to my riggers..only going out about 5'.

If you're running them on the #1 setting, thats closest to the middle, it might look like it's close with a little wire out, but does swing out as you give it more. On the #4 setting mine swing out no problem. Better than plastics with ring. IMO

I think if you were able to follow the wire in the water you would find it curves away from the boat as it goes down due to drag.  This is similar to blowback on a downrigger.  There will be a belly in the wire making it look straight close to the rod tip.

This pic might help...  the diver will swing away from the boat as you let out the wire.
