    Using any weighted system, boat speed is always the first thing to adjust a weights dive level.

    For me, I use #17 XT. The line will go thru most hook eyelets for snelling. Where some brands of #20 you have to move up a size in hooks for a larger eyelet.

    A couple things I did not see anyone mention. Towing a hardtop uses ALOT more gas. You have to be more aware of bridge heights/low hanging trees etc if you plan on towing to inland/other waters. ...

    Thanks Bob.
    Just as a note. You can run a 3oz weight attached under a #40 jet and get down around 57ft. And less line out. 2.5 to 2.7 mph. I've hit bottom in 65 ft near the line from Vermilion with...

    I never found the curves to be even close on either. I ran my jets along with partners TT's. And mine would release much easier and consistent than the TT's.
    But that's me.

    Any floater/shallow diving crankbait works well. Med to deep diving baits pull against the jet and change the jet dive curve/depth or blow out due to speeds and resistance. If that makes sense. ...
