    Crankbait depth chart

    Anyone know where I can get a depth chart for trolling crankbaits? I've looked online but have yet to find one. I know rapala has one but I can't find it or my old one. Or does anyone have one to post?

    trolling bible I believe it is called - is pretty good... would be better to have something online though since the bible becomes outdated quickly with the new cranks on the market...

    I don't have one to post, but I bought the "trolling bible" book last year and it has dive curves and trolling depths for a lot of cranks. It is a very helpful book.

    they also have the same bible with charts for casting... mine are old though and I think they are mostly walleye cranks.. I'll need to take a look again.. I used the trolling one quite a bit when I fished walleye more..

    here is the website for those ->

    The Precision Trolling books are the most popular for sure, they also make a seperate book for big water(great lakes)

    This is the one, Tubes:

    I have both of them, the Big Water edition just covers Dipseys, lead core, and wire line. What baits are you looking for, I can scan the pages for ya and e-mail it to you.

    8th edition, did you just buy that. Mine is from last year and is 7th edition. Like Dan said they are always updating them so you need to spend the $30 every other year at least.

    Does the casting book go by reel gear ratios to measure speed? So many varriables it seems.

    Along with the other trollers, I like the Precision trolling book as well. Its about the best way to get in the zones you want with the plugs you want to use.

    Not everyone gets to be an astronaut when they grow up.

    Rapalas and Reef Runners. Thanks Rosco if you were to do such a thing

    Tubes, check your AI e-mail. Not that I don't think you're worth it, but I really don't want to have to scan ALL of the Rapalas.... Here is the list, tell me which ones you need:

    I guess the test of line can vary your depth as well. This site is were I saw it but doesnt say much else. Gives some tips on tuning the lure to retrieve properly.
