    <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Friends,</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Has anyone tried using a plug and a spoon behind a dispy diver?&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; I got some literature today and using a 3 way swivel you can use the plug as the bottom bait and use a spoon above the plug.&nbsp; Of course you are using two seperate leaders off of the the dipsy for each bait.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Was just wondering if anyone has tried this?&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; I'd like to give it a go but for me all I see is a tangled mess happening!!&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; I haven't had much luck this season on Central Basin walleye where alot of other guys are just killing the "eyes".&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">I have been using 40 Jets pulling either scorpion spoons,crawler harness,or jointed Rapalas.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Have also been using dipsys on a 3.5 setting with spoons or worm harness but have caught all of my eyes except one on the Jets.&nbsp; </P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">I went thru the gamut of colors on spoons and the most consistent color so far for me has been silver watermelon.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Didn't get out much when the hot colors was anything copper because of either work or the lake was to rough to fish.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Very frustrated but willing to keep trying.</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Thanks</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Joe</P>

    <P>Joe, have used a deep diver plug and a spoon on a three way swivel but never behind a dipsy, also used a deep plug with no hooks just to get a spoon down in shallow water now I'am telling all the secrets...<IMG src="http://www.websitetoolbox.com/images/boards/smilies/biggrin.gif" align=absMiddle border=0></P>

    <P>the deep diving plugs will make the dipsey turn over and create a mess w/ the others.you can prolly use a SHALLOW RUNNING PLUG LIKE A REGULAR RAPALA OR A HUSKY JERK.</P>

    <P style="MARGIN: 0px">You gotta be willing to change things up&nbsp;frequently if you know you are on fish, but aren't catching any. Change the spoon. Change the size of the spoon. Pull some cranks or harnesses.&nbsp;Pull the Dipsy in 5-10 feet. Let the Dipsy out 5-10 feet more. Keep changing until you find a program.</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Although everyone is saying this is generally an easy year to catch a lot of fish, I have never switched programs so many times in a day or week before. For the last few years, you could throw out a Confusion and Blueberry Muffin spoon on a Dipsy set 90 feet back, and catch some fish. This year, the favorite color of spoon changes hour by hour, as does the depth of the fish.</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Keep changing your program, maybe every ten to fifteen minutes, and you'll find something the fish want.</P>

    Like SBE said, run a shallow crank below the spoon if you are using a dipsey.&nbsp; Reef Runners or deep cranks will flip and give you a giant twisted clusterf#ck!&nbsp; LoL&nbsp; We have used this method late in the year out of Huron with some success...a spoon with a 4-6 foot lead up top and a Ripstick with a 6 foot lead worked best for us....let the dipsey out using only the drag, do not let it out any faster than a slow click....<br>

    <P style="MARGIN: 0px">This summer I got a reel with a counter attached to it just for trolling the lake. This allows you to set your baits at a consistent depth each time. This allows you to keep your bait in the zone time after time which will increase your success. I went on a charter and this is how they set the baits each time. You can go to the Dipsy website and they have charts on how to set the baits effectively.</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Kyle</P>
