If your talking about Dypsie Divers V.S. Trolling boards they are 2 different animals.

The boards are more for getting baits out and away from your boat and the Dypsies are more for getting lures down and away a bit. They can not give you as big a spread as boards can.

I use Dypsies when I want to get lures down when my riggers are already full. I use boards when I want to get a spread out and away from the boat. This is due to boat spooked fish.

Also boards are more of a top water deal. Although I will add snap weights or inlines to get lures down more if I feel the need.

If I want to get down more and away from the boat Ill use a bigger dypsie.

Neither is the cure all and they both have advantages and disadvantages.

When you run both together you are taking advantage of both strengths.

Both are just another tool in the never ending arsenal we fisherman grow through out the years.

I believe he is referring to the Walker Deeper Divers. Yes I bought a few this year and had success right away. I like them because I can turn any rod with 15# line into a dipsy. They don't dive as deep as a large dipsy but they certainly target the right part of the water column in the spring.

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.

      I did that with tango and saw a world of difference ... I started at Sand Pines and they helped me tons. The kid brought me out kept all the pheasants caged and would plant one at a time in a easy spot where I could see where he planted. I would let tango out we would flush it shoot retrieve come back I would put him in the car and we did that 3 times. After that he then planted the rest of the ones I bought and we found all but one. Next spot I brought him was Golden Meadows and they were helpful as well I had them flag the general area the pheasants were planted. I went there a couple times and each time they used less flags and planted the birds farther away from the flags they did have out. Until the last time I went used no flags at all.

      As if there was any question...definitely be careful on those high current lakes.  I went through (walking) on Koetter tonight. Thankfully I only plunged one leg in to the hip and was able to scramble away.   Its a spot I have been a dozen times in the past few years.  I knew the ice got thinner in this area but was always passable and I followed a 4 wheeler or tank track and then a foot/sled path so I thought I would stay dry.  I was ON the path when I got wet.  Had picks around my neck and glad I did even if I didn't use them (happened SO fast).  The walk back to the car was more than a little nerve wracking.  Not sure I'll ever fish that spot again.  And in the future I wont be so trusting of other's tracks.  Spud on...   tg
