The fishing information contained in the popular publication Precision Trolling is a troller’s dream come true. Dubbed “the Troller’s Bible” by the tens of thousands of anglers who use this information to target fish at specific depths, Precision Trolling is just what the name implies. Precision Trolling is a method of fishing that allows anglers to accurately predict the running depths of their favorite lures and diving devices!
By manipulating lead length anglers can easily “aim” their favorite fishing lures at specific depths, accurately target fish they are seeing on their sonar while avoiding costly snagged lures. Even better, once a productive lead length is determined, it’s easy to duplicate that lure and lead length combination with other lines, putting more lures in the strike zone!
The Precision Trolling Data App goes a step further. Once an angler has determined that a particular lure and lead length are effective at catching fish, it’s easy to search for other lures in the list of Precision Trolling App that achieve similar depths. Once a productive depth is determined where fish are biting, it’s a logical step to try different lures at the same depth to determine which lure or lures fish react best to.
The new Precision Trolling Data App allows anglers to access a wealth of trolling data. The familiar “Dive Curves” made popular in the Precision Trolling book are now incorporated into easy to use “pickers” or “wheels”. The Data Wheels let you adjust the “feet down” to determine the “feet back”. This is particularly useful if you want to target fish at a certain depth that you are seeing on your sonar unit. The Data Wheel also allows anglers to adjust the “feet back” to determine the “feet down” that the lure will dive. This a fast and effective way of zeroing in on a target depth with any of the lures or diving devices included in the Precision Trolling app.

Precision Trolling Review...good but will be great!

By all accounts from people that use the app with recommended Berkley 10# XT and the lures that have been documented nothing gets better for accurate trolling depth control (or other tested combination).
That being said there are limitations. If your lure has not been tested some other method will be required. But all is not lost if you compare it to a similar lure that is documented/tested. Finding a tested lure that matches your untested lure by the overall length, body size & shape, lip size, lip shape and lip angle and buoyancy should get very close.
The other thought I have is it would be close to impossible to test all lures with the number that come out each year and already exist.
I would not want to be without it for trolling fish that are suspended or on the bottom (all off them).

Great info

Honestly I’ve been only using for a full year now. It’s obvious you guys are actual fisherman and the app is very easy to use and follow. Not sure if it’s possible but like most fisherman we aren’t sponsored by tackle companies and just don’t have the time to read up on all the new crankbaits lures that seem to be flooding the tackle stores as of late. I’m wondering if there is a way to sort lures by depth first so any angler can then just sort through those lures and go from there. For example if u are going to LOW in august and want to fish the basin an are looking for all lures that will troll say between 25 - 30 ft on planer boards is that possible? Maybe it would be just too complicated because of all the techniques that are available to get even shallow baits down that deep say using a downrigger. When salmo came out with the deep diving free divers I didn’t even know they existed until someone told me about them. Anyways great info and very easy to use once u get it figured out. Gary

Incomplete But No Alternative

I am a bit upset that the lifetime purchase doesn’t even include all the crankbaits that I have in my precision trolling 7th edition book (more than a dozen are missing including ones I use). I mean why is that? How hard can it be to update the data in the app with the information you have already collected?

Unfortunately for the consumer, this is the only game in town for this sort of information due to some ridiculously broad and vague patent that should never have been granted. It was granted for “marine electronics with lure depth analyzer” what a joke!! Perhaps one day it will be challenged and tossed out so that this app will improve in order to compete in an open market.

Because of this lack of competition, precision trolling can get away with a limited line diameters and crankbaits offerings (covered brands are focused mostly on those that sponsor their fishing show).

All this being said, when you need information for a crankbait/ line combination already in the app, it does a great job. I just wish they would add crankbaits more often and with different lines. 10,15,20 The ability to see the dive curves as well as the scroll wheels would be nice for those of us used to the books and curve stickers.

Edit: Crashes have been fixed with recent app update. Still waiting on data from old book to be added and longing for the day this laughable patent gets tossed.
