Guessing no one in their right mind would give up the fact they are catching Kings in close these days since that would mean combat fishing from here on out...but if someone wanted to say...hint that there are some fish within a few miles of shore, that would nice....any takers?

Beats the heck out of me, probably bought it 20 years ago, cant remember the sizes. I thought it was 1, actually researched it - figured 2. Its not a magnum, but the next biggest size in my tackle box, small, medium, large,magnum. So lets go with #1.
Update - Ok Checked again, I was looking at settings on the chart instead of size - so size #1 for sure
Thanks for sharing Kermy! I'm just confused on the "size #2." Did you mean size #1? Below is the chare for Luhr Jensen dipsies... Don't think the sell size #2 unless another brand out there you are using? Thanks again for the info and great reports!
Size 3/0 ("Mini" or "030") is 2-1/4" in diameter and can dive to 20 feet.
Size 0 ("Small" or "000") is 3-1/4" in diameter and can dive 35 feet with the included O-ring attached.
Size 1 ("Large" or "001") is 4-1/8" in diameter and can dive to 50 feet with the included O-ring attached.
Size 3 ("Magnum" or "003") is 3-5/8" in diameter (4-7/8" with the O-ring) and can dive to 100 feet with the included O-ring attached.
I was using a large dipsey- #2, not the mag. On 2 setting. I actually just put a magnum ring on it,the day before. I am also running fireline. Getting it about 50 ft down. You're right, alot of variables, size,settings, ring, line, but I am guessing most are talking about the large #2 dipsey, although alot do run the magnum,(myself included)
Hey Kermy, when most guys are talking dipsy, what size do MOST use? I always see reference (as you did) 140 feet out, but that depth is quite different from a size 1 to a 3 (mag). I won't even get into with or without the ring. Just curious when people post, and mention just on a dipsy what size is the general rule. I would like to help others when I have a good trip, so any info is appreciated.
Thanks in advance, and always appreciative of the info.
Here are the two I use, one for in close and one for out deep:
