Default Dipsy diver question

When using a dipsy diver or similar device does the set depth of the device need to have allowance for the depth of the lure, crankbait or whatever using at the time ?
example if looking for a total depth of 20' do I use a 10' dipsey diver for a 10' crankbait

Thanks for the help

How much line you got to let out to get that lure to 10'. Since you lure will be usually within 10' of the Dipsey, you use the Dipsey,. a deep diver off back of Dipsey would be going only as deep as you let out for Dipsey.

You cant run a deep diver off a dipsey it will flip .
just small bill plugs,spoons,worm harness.

little rippers and ripsticks would probably be ok. but no deep divers. the shallow shad rap would be ok. but no on the standard shad raps. good rule of thumb is that if the tie on for the crank is on the nose of the crank body, its ok behind a dipsey. if the tie on is on the bill, it likely won't work

You can run a slide diver, letting long leads any length you want. If you use the Lite Bite it will trigger on small fish or fouled. Long leads will prevent flipping. It's an alternative to the Dipsey.
