Hey Fellas,

Of late I have been doing a lot of exploring some new water which hold deep water rock bars and structure which will hold Barra and threadies... After several runs over the areas I have been able to consistently mark good fish and bait on the sounder... These rock bars are anywhere from 5m to 10m below the boat....

This is where I have hit a problem... So far I have spent over 100 bucks buying deep diving trolling lures which include: 120mm 5m and 8m+ RMG Scorpians and 20+ Killa lure River Rats.....

These lures are still at times not making it to where the fish are!!!

So am chasing some suggestions on lures (trolling lures) that will dive 8m-11m???

Any help will be greatly appreciated!!

Cheers Nick
i tested my lure out made with tentifeild metal bib, soldered tow , split ring through tow behind bib , swivel , and sinker , snaged the bottom at 21metres , as this is a sinking lure with a shimmy action, acan be cast out , let it sink too the bottom and retreived, starts shimmy on drop

Try one of those from Rapala , Mastuzo or luckyJohn

Depending on speed and line length they going up to 12m, I usualy trol ~40-70 away and with 2,5-5 km/h speed depend on fish and fish activity.

Also you can use troling sinkers  at http://www.cabelas.com you can find them, so you can use other shallower lures, like spiners etc. I adding ~2m fluocarbon lead after sinker.

Snapweights could be a good option.
Google that and look for the Off Shore Tackle pdf.
 
I've used them a fair bit pre-downrigger days.

Most important choose which on load (when you pull the fish)  switches straight, because if not then very hevy and very big load or just use straight connected.

I believe the olders Mann's 30+ is now the "Depth Plus 30+". Check on this page...

a downrigger is the best way to go.
but, I still just run anywhere from 1 0z, 2 oz, and 3 oz slip weights on the line about 6-7' ahead of the lure for most my fishing in depths down to 50' or so.

G'day NB96

Troll with the current & sufficient speed to still control the lure/line you are trolling the rock bar, lure depth will increase dramatically,but be prepared to lose some lures depending on the structure if you reach the required depth, there is a lot less chance of backing lures up in this method of trolling. As others said drop back, leader size, braid size will also have an effect, if you are running a double I would try deleting that & just try a reverse albright or similar to attach your braid to your leader, good luck beating the rock bar depth, cheers Balls.

These Jigwobblers are a Finnish-made lure with a lead head and a timber body.  I've made a few of my own copies for snook once the weather warms up again.  They get deep and have an interesting action. There's some vids on youtube showing them swimming.

here's the in-line slip-weights that I use.
they just clip and slide on your line to where you want it, and it doesn't add any resistance when fighting the fish.
I just make sure to place it close enough to the lure so that when reeling the fish in, the weight doesn't get to the rod and your fish is still too far out there.

other alternatives to a down-rigger for getting far deeper than just some smaller weights are dipsy divers, pink lady's, and deep-six's.
these are far superior to adding weight because they pull your lure down to a desired depth and keep it there, then, when a fish strikes, the pull on the line unclips a mechanism on the device and straitens it so that it's resistance and drag is then gone for fighting the fish.

that's the dipsy diver.
and it can be also adjusted to pull out to either side as well.

and this is probably the best one I think.
the deep-six.
different sizes run you to different depths, I think down to 60 feet.
