Crankbait Dive Depth Lookup

Anyone know a convenient table online to look up dive depth for cranks? I know I can buy Precision Trolling, but I'd like to find something online. I'm reorganizing my tackle and I have a bunch of boxless baits, lots of them from when I was a kid.

I don't know of anything on line ......

I have an older version of Precision Trolling in my boat (in addition to my current version). If you can find me on the lake on Saturday you can have it, I put it in the boat today not really knowing why I keep hauling it around as I never look at it anymore ......

For that reason alone, I wish that Rapala stamped the bottem of the lure with that info. Wouldn't that make the fishing world a better place?

I know at one time there was a little guide located near the rapalas here in brainerd that had a picture of all the different baits and what depth they run. Of course I lost mine, so now I am in the same situation.

I did find this info online tho. It kinda helps at least for some ballpark figures. Line dia would obviously change the numbers some, but a good starting point nonetheless.

Fishing is much more than fish. It is the great occasion when we may return to the fine simplicity of our forefathers.

How much line would you let out to get the lures to the given depths?

arent those stats usually done with 100 feet of line?

I tried going by those stats but found out that depending on my speed and line diameter - they werent always that close.

I just do it the old fashioned way.

I tie on my lure...let out my 100 feet and then start in 30 feet of water and slowly troll in till I hit bottom and then look at the depth on the finder.

Works pretty close...at least to a foot or so.

Just one last cast...
