As Great Lakes Salmon & Trout follow schools of baitfish into deeper water, anglers that don’t have downriggers can also do well catching these fish by trolling a Luhr Jense Dipsey Diver and either a Luhr Jensen Coyote spoon or Luhr Jensen fly combination.
Dipsey Divers come in 4-popular sizes that enable anglers to fish from 20′-100′ depths. When Dipsey Divers “dive” and hold their diving depth they put a lot of torque on a fishing outfit. That’s why Rapala came out with specialty trolling “Dispsey Diver rods“that are specifically designed for fishing Dipsey Divers. The ideal outfit also includes either a Rapala RSC or Rapala Hydros counter trolling reel. That way anglers have precise line distance to their Dipsey and they can easily calculate how deep they are trolling….consistently!
