There is a lot of luck, and skill, in catching fish. It has a lot to do with being at the right spot at the right time. But, once you are at the right spot, at the right time, you also have to have an enticing lure or bait to present, and a hungry or angry fish to be interested in what you are presenting to it. Part of the skill is being at the right depth. Whether you are an expert fisherman that adds more skill to that equation or if you are a great fisherman improving your skills and want to try different depths until you find the zone, you need a line counter reel to make the job of knowing how much line you are letting out behind the boat so that you can let your line back out at the same distance. The farther you let your line out, typically the deeper your lure and trolling rig will go. It’s great to keep a log of your setbacks on your fishing trips throughout the year so that you can look back and reference. A lot of people use different ways to measure how much line they are letting back, from using colored lines that change color every certain number of feet, to counting as the line goes out in seconds, to letting out an arm length of line at a time and counting as you manually pull it out. But, with a line counter reel, it does the work for you. Making it easy to know exactly how much line you have out at a time, each and every time, with no guess work. Letting you quickly get back out to where the fish are biting quickly each time you let out.
