Rated 5 out of 5 by joefloatin1 great diver To answer everyones question,yes they work great .I have used these for years and have caught over 500 fish on these using a spoon as the lure.To set these up i use a six foot leader to the spoon.They make these in several different depth divers .To acquire the depth you need to run 125 feet back from the tip of your rod.They do not run accurate at 100,trust me.I use michigan stinger (scorpion size) spoons.If you mark fish at 30 feet down use the 30 and let out 125 feet of line and presto your at 30 feet deep in the water.You cant run several lines and try to make hard turns in your boat they will cross.The speed should be pulled 2 to 2.5 mph to have them act right.When they get old or get abused by hitting bottom or rocks, they will tend to hold water in the diver at this time you need to replace them.These are easy to set up and use. Good luck and happy fishing......joe February 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by AL2000 Great purchase Best diver I ever used. I use them for lake trout. First time out I caught 4 trout. Have used other diving apparatus but never had the results I have had with this product. October 15, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 great alternative to down rigger Checked the depth on this unit which was advertized as running 20' deep. It does. Great diver. June 17, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by AstroDriver Great Product I have used this product for years and have caught 1000's of fish with it. The trick is in the set up. I used Luhr Jensen Pet spoons for the bait mainly size 13 ( fish for White Bass and Stripers) Boat speed is right at 3 mph. You need 100 feet of line to get to full depth and 50 feet for half the depth. I have fished it with two lures on above the diver and one trailing behind it. To large of a lure will make it surface all the time. Spoons work best for the lure and then not to large of a spoon. October 29, 2011

Details:I guess what I'm asking is does it come with a trolling guide to let you know how deep it will dive based on how much line you let out up to its max depth? And how far do you troll it back to get it to the max?
A:I use it on a downrigger.Thirty feet far from the weight.My fly is twenty four inches far from the flasher.As simple as that.Speed 3 mph.
A:No it does not come with a trolling guide but 100 feet of line equals full depth of the diver. 50 feet half the depth. I use 3 mph to troll and slower any faster increases the pull from the diver and caused it to drift in different directions.
A:usually 70-100 ft is standard. After that it will not go any deeper no matter how much line you let out
A:No they are not designed for large baits they will not dive to the right depth and might just cause it to porpoise instead of diving.But if you run a flutter spoon you will have a better chance of them doing what you want ....I hope this helps you ........joe
A:Yes, but a wahoo or other fish might try and eat the diver.
A:Tie your line to the tale of the lure and your bait to the belly.Your leader should be 6 feet long with your spoon having a swivel to stop line twist on your spoon.You should run these at 2 to 2.5 mph and avoid turning sharply or you will cause them to porpoise to the surfaceYou will love them when you have this setup.I have used these for years and will not use a downrigger because of the flexibility of being able to change the lure depth with a few cranks of the reel.Buy the size you want to run.I use michigan stinger spoons (scorpion Size)2 3/4 inches long.And i catch alot of fish with these.
A:First go to Luhr Jensens website there are 2 PDF on how to use this product. What I do is, I use about a 4 foot leader of the back of the Jet Diver and use mostly a Pet Spoon from Luhr Jensen (size #13) an troll about 3 mph. It takes about 100 feet to reach full depth at that speed and 50 feet to reach half the depth listed. I have used the 2 lure method shown in the PDF but it takes effort to keep it from tangling fun when you catch doubles. Using too large of a lure will cause ti to surface all the time. spoons have worked best for me. Hope this helps.
