Dipsey Rods


Slapshot

Recommended Posts

I like to run double divers per side so I run a 10’ and 8’ on each side.  Having 2’ shorter rod on inside seems to work well.  For brand lots of choices- Okuma, Shinano, Eagle Claw, Daiwa.  Just get a dipsey specific model. Rod brand seems to be a personal preference for most guys.

What settings do you use on the diver when running 2 per side?

Slapshot, if you run wire you need twili tip or roller tip.

J. Sparrow, I keep at least 2 numbers different when running double divers.  I use Slide Divers and set them together.  Once you get used to doing it then it is trouble free.  I run that way once lake sets up and fish are deeper.  I run single diver early when fish are high.  For Lake Erie I pretty much stick to braid divers rather than wire.

I use twilly tips on both my wire rods. Paid to have first one installed and watched. Did next one myself at home. No big deal.

Never had a seven strand wire break yet.  Haven't tried to new higher stand count wire yet, but I think it's pretty pricey.

I have 1 Okuma classic pro 10 footer and 1  classic pro 9 footer. I like them both and don't really notice any difference.

Use both on Erie and Ontario

I just use my wire line setups I use Salmon on Ontario. I can't afford to have set up ups dedicated to both species. Seems to work ok, but I'm no expert.
