Yep, we were running divers in this video.

Thanks, I didnt notice any but I wasnt watching for any either. So how deep do you usually run your hooks and how do you know how deep your running?

I run 100# Power Pro with a 130# green dot dacron leader and a 2.5-3 to 1 ratio on line out per depth of water seems to be fairly close for the depth that you want to achieve. It varies slightly depending on what diameter line youare running. If you run straight dacron, you will need more line out compared to what I am running.

I usually start out with 75' of line out because that puts the diver down around 30' as best as I can tell. Paddlefish like to suspend around that 25' range a lot of times so getting the diver down around 30' is a good starting point. You just have to watch your graph and adjust as needed depending on where the fish are holding in the water column.
