Just purchased the Slide Diver Lite Bite and am wondering if anyone is using one and if you have had any success. Plan on using this with mono and trying to get it down to the 30 - 40 ft range. Seems like a nice add to the spread, any info would be appreciated.
Mac I have not used these but am using the walker deeper diver one just with a spoon the other trailed by spin doctor and a fly(I like this alot!!!)Keep us posted with you results.
I tried them when they first came out and quickly found out that they will snap lite test line easily when they release and slide to the stop. $18 bucks gone. I do like the concept though. Big John introduced me to dive bombs which I like better and are easier to use as long as your not solo. Cal P.
Cal or Big Jon do the dive bombs also take the bait away from the boat???BARRY
John you forgot the shrimp. If your going to catch fish you need shrimp on the barge.I think thats why fishing has been slow.
Try the Champ site. I know a lot of guy's use them there.
Also check the Slide Diver site. They have some tip's there as well. Good luck.
E-mail me on this I can help....... Dale [Hammer] is my co partner at work! He can help better than I can. I will introduce you to him!!
I've run them. The concept is great, but they are a little tough to run by yourself. Kind of a handful. Much easier for me to put out a dipsy.The guy that designed them told me that I should at least use 20lb mono for the main line.
You'll find a little piece of vinyl tubing and a spring that comes with your lite bites. The spring is to be used with mono and the vinyl tubing is for braids or wire. Hope that helps.
