Rapala DT (Dives-To) Metal 20' Crankbaits
Great look to these lures, and well made. Cranks in like your pulling a plow though so it must be staying at depth for most of the retrieve just like advertised.
I like the lure but would not want to use it all day...even with a baitcaster it was a tug.

my favorite deep trolling lure
I troll at least 3 days a week, 10 to 12 hours a day, and have for 25 years. I have tried every crankbait brand known, and the Rapala DT series lures are the most precise running lures I have ever used. I troll with the DT-10, the DT-16 and the DT20s, as well as the magnum 30s.Most lures must be tuned before trolling different speeds, but not the DT series lure. I highly endorse these deadly lures. I feel that they have no equal.

Excellent Deep Runners
I have never been a good crankbait fisherman. Over the years I had tried several brands of deep running crankbaits, and rarely satisfied. This year I decided it was time to learn to fish crank baits. I standardized on the 20, 16 and 12 foot depth DT's generally fishing with 10 or 15 pound braided line. I have had very good success. I find that they get to depth and once there, I can fish them very slow and still stay on bottom.
