20lb torpedo 7 strand wire


Recommended Posts

Normally the Torpedo 7 strand trolling wire is used with a dipsey diver or a weight to achieve depth as it has no weight on its own.  Wonder if you are confusing the 7 strand with the Torpedo Weighted Steel line?  The Weighted Steel is supposed to go down 20 feet per 100 feet let out.  Two different and distinct products.

Walleye Copper at 2.0 gps- 100’ down 25’, 150’ down 31’, 200’ down 43’, 250’ down 55’, and 300’ ft down 65’.  From Blood Run site.  I ran a 250’ last year and it fished decent.  Likely will try a 200’ or a 2nd 250 this year.  For short sections lead core works better to me.

I fish 20lbs single strand stainless wire and the dive curve is 1' for every 10' of wire out + your crank depth.

So, if you run a Rapala DHJ-12 which has a max trolling depth of 19' and 300' of wire. You running 49' deep at 2 mph.

180' and 300' are common leads down here in the Central Basin.
