Troll top to bottom with absolute precision! The original directional diver--takes your lure as deep as you need it to go. The Luhr Jensen® Dipsy Diver® is designed to be easily set to run out a controlled distance to port or starboard. Turn and tighten per settings on back to run down AND out. Positive trip action for unhindered retrieve. Trips open on the strike for easier fighting. Sizes 0, 1, and 3 include snap-on O-ring for up to 20% more depth.
I use this product for fishing lake trout at the cottage. Very easy to use and at a great price! Well worth the money. You need to have a line counter on the rod you're using and it will get deep where the big fish are. When you see the fish bite, set the hook and yor're off! Get the Magnum size if you plan to fish at depths greater than 60ft

Worth the Money
I've started using the diver to troll for salt water stripe stocked in a large, very deep, fresh water lake. The diver works as advertized. Takes the guess work out of getting the lure to the correct depth.

dipsey for spring salmon
We are running the chrome dipsey on a 9 ft. rod and a wonderbread dipsey on a 10.5 ft. rod. We are using Power Pro braided line on our Daiwa sealine LC reels with mono backing first. Snubbers are attached to the dipsey then 15-25 ft. of 25# Big Game leader before attaching the Howie fly or hard lure. We are also running 4 planer boards with this combo for spring salmon on the south end of Lake Michigan and Waukegan.

The Dipsy Divers work great! They are inexpensive and get your lure down deep. I've used them on Lake Michigan and have caught more fish on them than on my very expensive electric down riggers.

could someone please explain to me how to use these. i will be fishing in a deep mountain lake and i need something to get my lure deep. i dont have a trolling motor or any motor on a boat, im using a floating tube thingy. any tips or anything would be great. thanks
Set up your main line to the diver as shown in the instructions, then your leader with the lure trailing (aprox 8"-16"). It really is best to use this with a trolling motor, as it's the forward motion that gets the diver to dive down. (1.5m.p.h) The more line you put out, the deeper it goes (depending on the size of the dipsy diver #0,1,2 or 3) ie 100ft of line out with a magnum size dipsy diver will get your lure down about 80ft. I hope this helps you out!
