Dive Bombs

A dive bomb is a fishing weight which is available in four sizes: 1, 2, 3, and 4 ounce. You're able to attach dive bombs to many types of fishing line such as - mono, lead core, and copper fishing lines. 

The dive bomb allows you to achieve better water depth whilst using less fishing line.

Where do I use it on my line?

You can clip the dive bomb at any point on line. As an example try clipping it 6ft above your bait, this way you won't need to remove the dive bomb when you catch a fish. 

A word of warning

An issue you need to be aware of is that you must stop reeling before you reach the dive bomb. If you don't stop reeling the rod tip could dislodge the plug from the dive bomb - resulting in you dive bomb dropping into the water.

Which Dive Bomb weight should I choose?

When using a mono line it's recommended that you use either the 1 or 2 ounce dive bomb to position the spoons just below the surface of the water.

The 3 or 4 ounce dive bomb are very effective at achieving greater water depths with lead core or copper lines.
