At a Glance: Divers
Divers come in two different shapes, one similar to a disk and the other a tube with wing-like extensions on the end. Both styles are designed to dive deeper down as water pressure pushes on the diver, allowing some variations to reach over 100 feet deep. With most popular divers, the amount of line let out from the reel determines how far from the boat the diver will travel, as well as the depth it could possibly reach. Divers are attached to the fishing line coming off the reel and a leader/hook combination is then attached to the diver.
Brands of divers available at FishUSA include Big Jon, Lurk, Luhr Jensen, Off Shore Tackle, Tru-Trip Divers and U-Charters.
