    Valid argument! Until then I’ll keep one hand on the steering wheel and the other on my beer!

    I really don't mind, but it's definitely not the rush the old fashion way is, when it feels like you hit a brick wall out of no where...fish on!! The relaxation is definitely nice.

    I am really disapointed this didn't stir up any more conversation than this. @Judah, I was hoping for some wisdom on this, what gives? Hawk and Henry making everybody soft!?!??! Surely there would be more Boone and Crocket paddlefish taken if we outlawed divers and moved the season out of the spoonbill rut.

    Maybe spoonbill are immune to being killed too. Kill a gobbler no difference in gobbler number. Kill a coyote ,, you guessed it same number of coyotes. Snag a spoonie and one drops from space to take it's place. Dipsy divers are not going to help you with your problem spoonbills. You should just give up. :D

    Bought me a dipsy diver a few years back......but didn't have the nerve to use it. Same feeling I have for crossgun use....to much advantage taken over the game IMO. :rolleyes:

    So my diver gathers dust in the garage along with my thought of crossgun usage.


    Maybe my above comments will spur more comments for your thread.:rolleyes:

    Most of the spoonbillers on here left because the mods/management suck

    The guy driving the boat works the hardest when pulling divers. :D

    Here is a couple videos I made of us pulling divers up on LoZ last year. Anybody else ever pull off a diver double?
