Getting down deep - dipseys and conventional weights
I've fished walleye all my life but only recently in Erie. I've had to learn about it all over again. I'm finally starting to get some good catches. I hear a lot of chatter on 68 about dipseys and I've used them myself. I've also used slip sinkers successfully for walleye. They're less drag on the line, they affect the action less than the dipseys, they get down just as deep when you let out the right length of line according to your line counter reel, they're a lot cheaper to buy and they're simpler to use. I'm seeing as good or better success on slip sinkers as I am on my downrigger. What's the real advantage of dipseys? Am I missing something?
