Description ( from app’s site )
Dipsy Troller is an iPhone App for fishermen. It gives the length of line for the depth you want to reach with fishing divers like Dipsy Diver, Jet Diver, Pink Lady of lead core line used to fish walleye, salmon, trout, lake trout.
As a fisherman myself, I was always searching for the charts and either I can’t find it, or if I find it, it’s soaked with water. Don’t misunderstand me, all my tackle boxes are well organized but this little piece of paper has no place in them. So I have designed this app for all of us who can’t find the charts. More seriously, while driving the boat it’s not always easy to find the right value in the chart and to calculate all of the other variables, speed and line.
The app has been designed to be fast and easy to use. Select the diver and choose the depth, it will give you the length of line to take out of the reel.
The app has been designed for 14 divers:
- the 5 standard Dipsy Divers from Luhr-Jensen
- the Magnum Dipsy Divers from Luhr-Jensen
- the 4 Jet Divers from Luhr-Jensen
- the 3 Pink Lady from Luhr-Jensen
- any Leadcore line
This app is of usefull and easy type kind. One menu to choose the diver and sliders and switchs to calculate. The user interface has been built for simplicity and effectiveness. The topmost labels help to set the slider fast. When on a boat, you must have a strong grip around your phone and your fingers blocked the view of standard way of displaying info.
