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.

Any plans of doing data for the slide diver with the ring and 7oz weight?

*** NEW DATA ***

We have added another speed (1.2mph) to Offshore Snap Weights (Pro Weights) for sizes 1 oz, 1.5 oz and 2 oz. Also added is 2 speeds for the 3oz size.

This data is under the Offshore category and is meant to be used for spinner (crawler harness) fishing or for running any non-diving lure (spoons, Slow Death...) behind a Snap Weight. The depths given are for the Snap Weight, so you might have to added a foot or 2 for whatever is running behind the Snap Weight and for how far behind the Snap Weight the lure is running.

Note: for crankbaits, there is great data for using a 2 oz Offshore Snap Weight 50 foot ahead of many baits. This is available under many crankbaits by selecting the line type of "50+2 / 50ft 10XT + 2oz Snap Weight". You can see all the cranks that have 50+2 data by choosing the "List" function at the bottom of the screen and choosing the "50+2 Method" list.

This is what we’ve been waiting for!!! Thanks to all that worked on this! I’ve sent emails requesting this data and its finally here! Trolling mid winter on Erie will be so much easier now that we’ll know exactly where we are running!

How come my Android phone won't update from the V5.1.123, from 2 or 3 weeks back then?

Great app. Thank you for continuing updates.

I love the 50+2 method! Gets baits deeper and less line out!

Scott Arndt Mike Barrett this sill allow us to account for the 3oz inline camera

You show two shapes of weights. Which one is the data for? Or is it both? I can't tell from the app

By far the best app on my phone!Thanks for all your hard work.
