Diving depth? Vodkaman help!

I think a lot of it has to do with the angle between the rod tip and the line tie. Think about the cranks that run under the boat and turn up as they aproach the end of the retrieive.Just a thought.

VMAXX, the lure does bottom out and run horizontal. A depth is reached were the downward forces start to reduce as the line/lure angle increases, balance the upward forces of the line. At this point the lure swims horizontal. The lure is still trying to dive and is held up by the line.

There will be a minimum ammount of line required to get the lure close to its maximum depth. Letting more line out will not result in any significant increase in depth.
