Having no luck catching fish? Try to go deeper Do you sometimes get the feeling that the lake or stretch of sea you are fishing at is completely empty of big predator fish?
Your spot might not be barren after all: it is your lures that are swimming too close to the surface. Pike and pike-perch are fish that occasionally move from the shallow shores to the deep spots in open waters. When this is the case, they can be effectively caught by trolling. Regular lures mainly swim at depths of one to two metres. With Kuusamo divers you can reach trolling depths of up to 10 metres.

Use divers for more power! Tie the line coming off your reel’s spool to the diver. Attach a leader about the length of your rod to the diver’s swivel. To the other end of the leader, tie a spinner, spoon, plug or trolling fly. The achieved swimming depth is affected by the thickness of the line and the trolling speed. With regular monofilament line the maximum swimming depth is around 10 metres. Using a thin braid allows you to go even deeper. However, you don’t always have to go that deep as the fish might well be hiding at a depth of 5 to 6 metres, say. If you notice that this is indeed the case, let off some line to get the diver and the lure to swim closer to the boat and the surface.
