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.

How come they are so darn expensive $50? Are they worth the money?

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).

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
