Luhr Jensen Jet Diver Lure
Rainbow Trout Extravaganza
In Quartz Lake., Alaska I used this product, and we were very successful at being able to keep our lures down where the good size trout were. We caught FOUR 20 inches or bigger, as well as two stringers full on two separate days. I intend on trying this method with walleye and others in the Great Lakes Region.

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

I had to experiment with it to learn what direction to use it in. & figured that out pretty quick.
& wonder what speed my boat should be moving at for the best results & also wonder what might be the best bait or lure to use behind it?
& whats the recommended length of the leader line I should use shoe the fish don't see the diver & will only think about the bait/lure?
I've bought all four of them & have not been using them much due to these questions..
Now that the fish are going deeper & can see how useful these could be.

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.
