Precision Trolling Data

Precision Trolling Data, LLC is an independent company that documents the diving depth of popular fishing lures such as crankbaits and also common trolling hardware such as diving planers and also sinking lines like lead core. Precision Trolling Data uses highly trained scuba divers and sophisticated scuba techniques to actually observe lures and trolling gear as they are functioning underwater!

Depth Data in your Pocket

At PTD we go underwater to literally get a “fish’s view” of popular trolling products. The goal of this rather unique research is to determine exactly how deep various lures and trolling gear will dive based on key variables such as lead length, trolling speed and line diameter. In turn, avid anglers can use this data to literally aim their favorite baits and trolling gear at fish they locate with the help of modern sonar.

The data collected by Precision Trolling Data, LLC is sold as a mobile device app available for both iPhone and Android users. The data collected by Precision Trolling Data is in turn sold by Apple and Google at their app stores respectively.

Thanks. Love your app

If you ever wondered how line diameter influences on the trolling depth of lures and hardware, this simple illustration does a good job of explaining the dynamics involved. Because both super braid and monofilament fishing lines float, this illustration holds true for both line types. ... See MoreSee Less

Thanks for sharing I use your app

Sheldon Brent Cool diagram and explanation!

Is it safe to assume the same basic principle applies on the cast? Longer cast - deeper running but with greater “parachute” effect? Thinner cuts better and dives deeper similar to 2nd/bottom pic? ...but no difference between mono and fluoro unless line diameters are different?

Jamie Guy remember when I was talking about 50 to 70 percent of your line i close to the top of the water.no one ever believes me.in big waves you can sometimes see the line between them.well I can't any more lol

Spoonplugging , No-no line

Blowback per .001? It’s got to be graph-able

Adam Smet This is why you don’t run heavy braid...

Fantastic illustrations! Thank you.

What's the measure of a great crankbait? Well, how about a bait that fish like so much, the same fish hits not one, but two different trolling lures before it can be landed!! That very thing happened recently while the Fishing 411 crew was filming a walleye show on Lake Erie. A walleye hit a Mag Lip on one board line. While the fish was being reeled in, a second board line went back and you guessed it, the fish had both baits in it's mouth. Now that's an endorsement for a crankbait. Fish just can't get enough of the Mag Lip!! ... See MoreSee Less
