My question is purely a theoretical one, the answer to witch having no chances to be ever tested effectively.

The characteristics of the line density etc, have little effect on the depth. Only the diameter of the wire catches the water forces. Again, when the upward forces on the line are equal to the downward forces on the lure, a balance is reached and the lure swims horizontal or parallel to the surface.

The lure would swim at a constant depth below the surface.

1. you must assume that there are no obstacles at a certain diving depth were the lure runs constantly that may brake the line

2. don't know if this matters but the water temperature may be different in different locations even at the same depth , also the water has different currents that flow in different directions even if you are in the ocean.

3. it will certainly follow the curvature of the earth , same for you , even if you watch the horizon and you imagine you will walk in straight line towards it (does not matter if you'll walk into a valley or climb a mountain to get there) , you will follow the curvature but you won't feel/see that , the boat and the lure will do so , even the ocean:D:D:D

P.S. IMHO for the lure to follow a straight line , the one who retrieves it must do it in a straight line so at a certain point it must start flying even if this means microns of going up over kilometers of horizontal walking, maybe you'll end up fishing on the moon if you are lucky to intersect it
