Trolling Depth IQ

While trolling is not our favorite fishing technique there is no denying that it puts fish in the boat! The main problem with trolling is that you don't know what your lure is doing or what depth it is actually at; until now!


At New Wave Fishing Academy we needed to be more effective while trolling and this meant understanding what our baits are doing. As anglers we all have too many lures and not enough time to learn how they behave under all conditions and aren't focusing on recording that behaviour so we can repeat it in the future. To solve this problem we utilized our background in engineering to do the math and develop the equations that govern how baits dive through the water column while trolling. By using these equations we were able to build a model that allows anglers to input the desired (or current) conditions to get the dive depth information for their bait instantly.


We've modelled over 60 commercial & custom baits to give you the most precise lure dive depth information on the market. Notable baits modelled include Bucher Outdoors, Blue Water Baits, BR Baits, BS Lures, Landit Lure Co, Livingston Lures, and many more! Trolling Depth IQ Ebook explains the factors impacting lure dive depths, gives you dive curves at 3 speeds for each bait, and exclusive access to an online tool for creating custom dive depth charts under any conditions.


No more guessing or having doubts. It's time to start fishing smart with Trolling Depth IQ.


The Trolling Depth IQ ebook also contains explanations for all of the factors impacting a lures dive depth, teaches you how to make a quick but accurate dive curve for your own bait on the fly, and includes modification factors for manipulating an existing dive curve you have under different conditions like switching to the jointed model of a bait, increasing or decreasing line size, or changing your speed.


Each bait in the Trolling Depth IQ Ebook (listed at the end of this article) will be complete with a sheet like the one below. The sheet shows the dive depth curves for the bait at 3, 4, & 5 MPH using 80 lb braided lines and for water temperatures of 60 F.


The online tool, link contained in ebook, allows you to select the bait of choice, input the speed, line rating, and water temperature to generate the dive curve instantly. This allows you to have a dive curve specific to your conditions or to experiment with in case you are considering buying certain baits for a depth situation, putting different line on a rod, or whatever else you can think of!


If you have any recorded dive depth information for a bait we do not currently have in the Trolling Depth IQ tool we can easily add it in with your help of providing the dive information which will then allow you to change all the factors shown and get accurate dive depths for other conditions you may fish it in. Feel free to reach out at our email or on any of our socials to pass along the information.
