The Depth Raider has been specifically designed for fishing around heavy cover such as weeds, sunken timber and rocks. To maximize its effectiveness, always work the Depth Raider with a high rod angle, whether casting or trolling. Whenever the lure collides with cover, immediately drop the rod tip, to create a momentary slack line. This allows the Depth Raider to float up backwards from the snag. The sudden reverse rising motion backs the lure out of most snags. Resume your retrieve or troll with a sudden rip forward of the rod tip to free any remaining cover clinging to the lip or hooks.
