The newest precision trolling book is what I would get. Pick them up at any of your larger sporting goods stores.

Precision trolling all the way. Get the latest edition you can to show more up to date lures.

If you pull crankbaits alot, this book is worth every penny. I've never had a crankbait that wasn't in the book, unless it was a brand new model.

Because they field test every lure at different variables with a scuba diver in the water to record the depth. Very labor intensive.

Are they worth the money, IMO yes. If you're looking for a cheaper alternative the Rapala line counter is about $15 and comes with a book that has the Rapala Presicion Trolling depth curves in it.

If you only fish the rapala line , they make a tackle box guide with every bait they make for around $5.00. These are very nice, I have one.

Gives a seperate graph for every type of lure and size. Telling you how much line you need out to fish different depths. Easy to use.

Go out to the Rapala web . It's called "tackle box guide"

The Pro Edition 1.0 is the one most people talk about ($40 + $10 shipping on thier site), I believe the only 2 currently availble are that and the Big Water edition.

It's pretty sweet. Mine is 4 yrs old. I may get another one so it would include the minnow raps and anything else. Probably the deep tail dancers.

Sorry I didn't get a chance to check in yesterday. If you still want this, post here again Mon. I'll make copies and figure out a way to get them to you. You don't live far so maybe you could stop by and pick one up.

The new precision trolling pro edition 1.0 is different from the prior version. Has plastic protected cover and water resistant pages. Also has two metal rings that open up so you can add additional pages as they come out with guides for new lures (I think the old version was spiral bound). You can also go to their HSOforum to print out lure pages that are not in the book (extra cost of course).
