I have been wondering about the dive curve on Dipseys. According to the dive charts a #1 dipsey set to 3 has a max depth of 50' with 142' of line out. I see and hear guys running line out to 240 and farther. To me, once the diver reaches that apex and you let more line out it will begin to run shallower. Are you doing this to get it away from the boat or is there more to it that I am not aware of? Ironically, It's been a hot setup in my boat to run it at 142' out with a flasher fly running @ 2.5. I know it is running very close to 40' - 45'. and can place more lines in this zone. By letting it out farther it may catch fish, but I have no idea where it is in the column. Any thoughts on this?
