Rated 5 out of 5 by LoPro TripZ Diver by Walker These seem to be just what the Doctor ordered for fishing the top 20 feet of the column. What's really nice is the absence of drag when you trip them and reel in. Really really good product to add to my arsenal. July 10, 2012

Rated 5 out of 5 by junited Awesome Diver This diver, like the Luhr Jensen diver, brings the bait to where the fish is; however, this diver trips when the fish is on allowing you to fight only the fish and not the diver! June 16, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by bob101 L Jenson better wake up The product worked as advertized. Even with a small fish it still released. September 22, 2010

A:Yes, we use it with inline planner boards all the time on Lake Erie for Walleye&Steelhead.
It tracks straight. You can also use them on big boards or even without boards at all. Great tool.
Details:I'd like to know what weight lures that can be used? I will be pulling jigs and spoons with it. Also, what size line and boat speed determines how deep it runs?
A:Generally there is no set weight, however you would use trolling lures or spoons with the emphsis on trollling.
You really do not want a line that has a diameter bigger than 20 pound test. if you need stronger line, go to a super line which have smaller diameters.
You would not want to trolling any faster than 4 mph.
However for the pros take on trolling you should get the book below.
The book listed below is about $30.00 and will answer all of your questions.
PRECISION TROLLING BIG WATER EDITION 2 BY MARK ROMANACK
A:General rule of thumb is 100ft. of line.(The above is what most use here in MI)
However, boat speed, line out, line diameter, what type of line used, what you are trolling, currents all play into how deep it dives.
With the boat moving slowly at trolling speed, slowly allow the diver to dip in the water and hold the diver in place to observe that it is able to plane down and out in the desired direction. With constant tension (do not free spool the line when letting the diver out as the diver may loose it's plane attitude and spin downward at a freefall), let the diver out slowly so that it not only dives, but planes out to the side as you let out line from the reel. A line counter reel like the Walker WLC 888, WLC 500, WLC 330 or WLC 100 will help you determine the amount of line you are letting out to the diver.
