Default Trolling Lure Depth Calculator

Hello - I've been a lurker on this site for years and have always enjoyed it. This past year I developed a trolling app that some of you might be interested in and this spurred me to officially join as a site sponsor. Links to the app and my Facebook page are in my signature.

I'll keep it short and sweet - this app uses a physics based calculation in order to determine trolling lure depth. It is actually calculating the curvature of the line underwater and takes into account speed, line size, line type, lure type & size, rod tip height, weight size & placement, and even allows you to use divers such as Dipsy Divers or Sea Strikers. I do a lot of testing to determine the parameters needed to accurately model this tackle under water.

I'm really proud of the flexibility this app provides. It is very easy to see the effect that letting out more line or adding weight has. It's also really easy to see the effect of adding a Dipsy Diver/Sea Striker planer. I'd love to hear what you guys think. Part of the reason I purchased a sponsorship is so that I could reach out for feedback from other fisherman.

Please let me know if you have any thoughts or questions - I love all feedback & depend on it to continually improve the app. A few pics are attached below. I'd love to hear if there is any tackle or lures that you would like to see in this app.
