Very nice, were you guys running those behind dipsys or were you just flat lining them? I was out last weekend and tried 40-60' with dipsys but I only caught in 18' with body baits.

Hi Eric,

Good to see you onboard here!

We were using downriggers---not my favorite way of fishing, nor Jim's. How deep could you get with the dipseys? Were you in a kayak?

It was so calm on Mon that you could have jigged with spoons or whatever.

Hey Harold, its been a while since I saw you work your quickfish magic at the meet and greet years ago.

My bigger dipsy is rated to 70' and I can get it down to 80-85' if I want to. I ran the big dipsy close to bottom and a smaller dipsy about 25' down, I also tried flat lining a body bait down about 15' out there too. Didn't get a sniff out there but I went 2/3 in shallow with one small salmon and this absolute monster brown.

Oh ya I definitely wasn't complaining. I'm in my kayak, the 12.5' Mariner by Native Watercraft.

I have a small dipsey that I don't think I've ever used. I also have a jet diver that I have used. I like it better because it becomes partially unclipped when you get a hit, reducing the drag.

oh no wrong thread for those replies lol....please delete them i'm going to post them over where they belong

The jet diver seems like a good option when you aren't fishing too deep, that was my first trip on Georgian Bay, I have always spent my time fishing out deep on Lake Ontario. I didnt realize that they float at rest, that would be a nice feature when you get a fish on your second line.

Nado, I'm not sure if you are referring to Georgian Bay or not, but if you are, you can only have one rod/line out.

Thanks Tailfin, always good to make sure but I was referring to Lake Ontario. It always sucks when you hook one in the kayak and your other rod has 150' of line out over 100' of water. It isn't an issue in a boat but in a kayak I stop trolling to fight the fish.
