U-Charters Slide Diver
U-Charters Slide Divers are a new take on the standard diver design. These fully adjustable trolling sinkers rig with the mainline running through the body of the disc. That means when a fish strikes, the diver runs freely along the line with little to no resistance. Leader length is no longer restricted as the line can be locked in at any point allowing the angler to stretch the offering well behind the diver, which instantly releases at the lightest bite from a fish. As soon as the rod moves, remove it from the rod holder and reel in.
The Small #00 (SD00); 3 1/4 in. - Great for all species of freshwater gamefish, including walleye, lakers, steelhead, and salmon in shallow to mid-range depths.
The Standard #1 (SD1); 3 3/4 in. - Great for all larger species of freshwater gamefish, including walleye, lakers, steelhead, and salmon in mid to deep depths.
The Lite Bite #1 (SD1-LB); 3 3/4 in. - Like the Standard model, the Lite Bite has a mechanism that allows it to be clamped down anywhere on the fishing line. What sets the Lite Bite apart is an extra arm that instantly opens the release mechanism when a fish of any size hits. Properly adjusted, the Lite-Bite can handle everything from the smallest spoons and Walleye spinners to the largest flashers and cut bait set-ups. Lite-Bite model works well in areas where small fish are common catches during trips out for larger species. With the Lite Bite the days of towing perch, small walleye and trout are over.
Each package contains one diver, full rigging instructions, and rigging accessories including a bead, four pieces of vinyl tubing, and a barrel swivel.

A Five Star Product
by Comanche -
I have used this product for many years on the Great Lakes fishing Salmon & Lake trout with excellent results. I feel it puts more fish in our boat, because it takes the bait away from the boat,the bait runs a certain distance back behind the Slide diver,then releases to bring the fish to boat with ease. In the much clearer water in the Lakes now days Slide Divers are the ticket.
Great product and catches fish

I've always run dipsy divers on my boat when fishing for salmon and steelhead but I was not familiar with the Slide Diver product until I fished on a friend's boat. I quickly noticed the advantages with setup over a normal dipsy diver upon setting the the first line of the day. With the Slide Diver you can control the leader lengths; unlike traditional diver that are limited to a shorter fixed length. Having the ability to run 20, 30, 50 feet leaders provides a great advantage over traditional divers because it reduces the chance of the diver spooking the fish. I've added two Slide Divers to my tackle box and run them now in conjunction with my dipsy divers.

These were reccommended to me by fellow fishermen and they rave about them. So far I have tried the SDLB once and it trolled perfectly. I did not catch anything on this one time outing but I am looking forward to some successful fishing yet this season. Great product and pretty easy to use once you understand how it is supposed to function. There are helpful videos on youtube for getting set up. Good luck!!
Best Diver on the market

The Slide Diver Lite Bite is the best planer device I have used to date. I use to be Dipsy guy but as soon as I gave these a try I haven't turned back. The added Lite Bite arm triggers the diver to release if a small perch or bass hits it so i dont drag them around for awhile not knowing there on. Fantastic Product and great customer service.

THESE HAVE BEEN A GREAT TOOL FOR ME TO CATCH SALMON ON LAKE MICHIGAN. IF YOU RUN BRAIDED LINE YOU NEED TO FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS SO THE DIVER WON'T SLIP ON THE LINE. I AM ABLE TO RUN MY BAITS BACK AS FAR FROM THE DIVER AS I WANT TO KEEP FROM SPOOKING FISH. THEY ALWAYS HELP PRODUCE THE LARGEST FISH EVERY TRIP OUT.
