Precision Trolling App Description

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. For more information on Precision Trolling and how to become a better troller click here: www.precisiontrollingdata.com Precision Trolling Data LLC owns a patent U.S. Patent No. 7,113,449 entitled “Marine Electronics With Lure Depth Analyzer” issued September 26, 2006 which prevents other companies/individuals from providing lure data on an electronic device.

    User friendly and quick access to pinpoint accurate depth information . The screen can be difficult to see in bright sunlight. A possible fix - use a white background instead of the photo of the lake for a higher contrast.

    I bought the lifetime membership and love it. What’s nice it upgrades anytime new stuff comes out. I troll with fireline heavier than what they list but thru use I adjusted. Only thing is the line selection should be increased. Great app highly recommend it.

    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.

    I have been using it for two seasons with excellent results. I can confidently send any bait on my boat to any depth I desire. I use it every day on I’m on the water and I consider it an essential fishing tool. It’s easy. All you have to do is find fish and schools of bait on your electronics. Determine their depth. Then use the app to select a lure that can target that depth. I also use it to assess crank baits and delivery systems helping me make informed tackle buying decisions. As Mark Romanack (one of the owners of Precision Trolling Data) says, “It’s like adding gun sights to your bait.” I am not giving it 5 stars because I would like to see some user features added to the app. They just added an update that allows you to build a favorites list that makes it so you can add the baits you own and not have to sort through the entire library every time you want to look up a bait. Which is a huge step in the right direction. I would like to see it taken a little further where I could add baits into spread sheet format and assign them a rod number and have the lead length, depth, speed, and line type listed along side the baits. I at times I fish up to 8 lines at once and it gets hard to keep track of all the lead lengths. I have my rods marked and numbered 1-8. I find myself constantly referencing lead lengths when setting and resetting lines or asking the people I’m fishing with if they remember the lead length. Having all my trolling spread information consolidated into one easy to reference screen would put this app over the top into the 5 star category for me. As it would make me much quicker and more efficient on the water.
  • Great info, when it doesn’t crash.

    Love the app but miss the books. Would also be nice to be able to switch from Apple to droid and not have to pay vise versa. New update/favorites tab rocks minus the app shuts down when I select a lure.
  • The next level in your fishing game.

    For the price of one trolling rod setup you can guarantee all of your lures are running in front of the fish that you’re after. Not wasting time out of the strike zone or even worse in the zebra and quagga mussels! Knowing your lures are in the right place removes the biggest obstacle to catching fish, by giving you confidence. I can’t wait until they add a My Lures tab and a Today’s Lures tab. For the guys that are complaining about price, you’re just not understanding the small details that make all the difference between a good fishermen and great fishermen. This is one of those. Worth the money. Captain Ben
