Posted By lowwater on 23 Feb 2012 04:21 PM I am not sure Captain Q but I think what they are taking about is what we called just divers. We used them years ago at Bouy 10 trolling for Silvers (Coho) Salmon. They pull your line down right behind your boat when you are trolling and you put your lure 4 to 6 feet behind the Diver. When you get a fish on it trips and doesn't pull down so that you can play the fish. Using divers you can troll pretty fast and not have to put on an ungodly amount of weight to get down. Fishing Bouy 10 there was so many boats that if you had alot of lines out a long ways it would have been tangle city. So diviers was the way to go. If you have anyone around you that fished Bouy 10 on the Columbia River 30 to 40 years ago or so they will tell you what was used and what a huge fishery it was. The State of Wahington alone was releasing 25 to 30 million yearling Coho a year into the Columbia and the State of Oregon Was planting millions also.
