Description

Off Shore Tackle Tadpole Diving Weights offer the trolling angler a simple and easy alternative to using traditional downriggers and divers to get lures down to mid level depths. The design of the in-line Tadpole features a flat faced trolling weight with two coast lock snaps. When you set your lure out, the face of the Tadpole points downward, and the coast lock stays at the top of the arm in the clipped position. When a fish strikes, the coast lock slides down the arm into the tripped position, so you easily fight the fish and not the resistance of the diving weight itself. These diving weights are 99% lead free and feature a durable black powder coated finish.

Off Shore Tackle Tadpole Diving Weights are highly effected by speed. Slight fluctuations in speed can dramatically impact the running depth. Going slower will cause these Off Shore Tackle Tadpole Diving Weights to run deep whereas going faster will cause them to rise and run shallower. This also applies to turns, the inside rods will run a little deeper and the outside rods will run a little shallower.

Each package contains one Tadpole Diving Weight and two coast lock snaps.

Great Product   (from prior model)
Pros: inexpensive, Great Product, cheaper than expensive downriggers
Cons:
Best Uses:
Comments: My son and I tried all 4 tadpole sizes out this past Friday on Calaveras Lake in San Antonio. The biggest thing you have to do is know how to calculate all the variables such as the test line you are using in mono or braid (15 lbs Moss Green PowerPro Braided Spectra Fiber), length of leader tied to the tadpole and how far back behind the boat you are running the tadpole and lure. You will need to know all of this in order to accurately know what speed is required to effectively hold the lure at a certain depth. My son used his iPhone while we were on the water and went to offshore tackle website then clicked on Dive Charts. I also went to Precision Trolling to get a full understanding of identifying the key variables. Here we were able to accurately chart the number of feet we need to have the lure deployed behind the boat and the speed we need to be going to achieve the depth we needed to be at in order to present the lures in the fish strike zones we were seeing on my Lowrance® Elite-5 HDI Fishfinder/Chartplotter Combo. He also used GPS on the fishfinder/chartplotter to know our true trolling speed.

The specifications chart shows the depth at certain speeds using certain lb. test line. However, it does not indicate how much line is let out in feet or yards to achieve the stated depth. What length of line out is used to achieve the stated depths at the stated speeds?

While you can run any style of lure with this item it is not recommended to run deep diving lures. It is recommended to run shallow diving lures, worm harnesses, spoons and any similar lures. Deep diving lures may cause the swivel to trip and determining your depth would be difficult.
