Davis Instruments® Fish Seeker
Used these on Lake Erie for a week - caught more fish than I ever have! seemed to work best at 2.2 to 2.4 mph. Was still catching white bass & sheep head too - even though we didn't want them. Can't wait to try them on salmon.

works for me
I've used this many times trolling for trout. you HAVE to stay below 2mph. I've tried to troll faster for a striper and it pops up. I think its more of smaller fish set up, like trout, but it works on bigger fish as well. I set it up according to what the fish finder says, and I catch fish. A LOT of fish. Maybe its the lure but this helps me get to the depth where I need to be. don't forget to use a snubber for trout. I would rate it a 5* if it didnt flip when you cant get bellow 2mph.

I tried to use this product with spinners, spoons, and even a small suick jerk bait. In all cases, the fish seekers failed to stay down and ended up floundering on the surface within a minute. We were trolling with a small boat and 15 hp motor at minimum idle speed. Maybe we were still going more than 2 mph. I'll probably try it again, but the first few tries were a waste of time.

Not impressed with this products functionality. Could never be certain it was diving at the correct depth.Never hooked up with a kokenee while being successful with other techniques. It may not dive at lower trolling speeds????????? Not sure if it can be used with flashers/dodgers. Very diisappointed!
