Product Details

Product Details

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.

striper magic

by -

I fish for striper and they are wary of dipsy divers. These allow the bait to be set back as much as necessary.I have a small boat with 1 basic clamp on downrigger.These are alot easier (for me) to use than downriggers.I can put the bait right where I want it to be and catch fish.

Much better than Dipsy divers

by -

Like Dipsy divers they will take your lures down & out away from the boat, but they far exceed Dipsys in that you have the ability to move your lure far beyond the diver. That is, you may set your lures many feet or yards past where your diver is located in the water much the same as your ability when using downriggers. On strikes the slider releases everytime and does not interfer with the fight. When you want to pull your line the Slide divers release very easily everytime...no more broke rod tips. They are worth every cent..try them. Dave

Adjustable Diver

by -

Like the concept of running on your main line and letting line out a ways then lock in the diver. When tripped will slide down to bead and swivel. This helps the diver set away from the lure or bait being fished. One of the areas we fish for Spring Chinook the Chinook are suspended and this should work great. Haven't got to try it yet on the lower Willamette River. I tried it on the river by the house for Spring Chinook but the area was a bit too shallow for the diver to work. The water I want to try using the diver is around 50 feet and the fish can be around 35 feet. That should work great.

Slide Divers are excellent for the clear waters of the Great Lakes

by -

Slide Divers are a "must-have" for anyone fishing the Great Lakes. With the clearing waters, fish have become more weary of divers, cannonballs or anything else that doesn't look natural. The Slide Diver allows you to set your leads far behind the diver and away from the boat. This is great at all depths, but especially when you're working close to the top of the water column because the lure is away from the boat. They can be tricky to set, especially in rough waves when you already have a lot of baits set out, but with practice and a little patience, you'll get the hang of it. It's sort of like setting a board out when you already have a few out on each side. Just set it out the back and slowly allow it to dig into the water and find its place in your spread. Just go slow and you'll be fine.

It Works

by -

The SlideDiver functioned ok. If you feel a longer lead from diver to lure, harness, etc is necessary this works as it should. Too many little pieces (surgical tubing, plastic tubing, little spring) make set up a little awkward though. It seemed it was hard to find a sweet spot for the release. When trolling it functioned properly. I wasn't comfortable with the slide diver depth chart. It appeared to follow the DD chart . IMO it doesn't warrant the hefty price. As far recommending the product I give it a "yes" only to try it to see if you like it. I won't load up my tackle box with them.
