Simplified governing equations for line length, velocity, and lure hydrodynamic characteristics are used to determine the depth at which a lure runs in typical noncommercial fishing. The hydrodynamic characteristics of five typical lures were determined experimentally and their line length-velocity-depth relations, as predicted by the governing equations, are reported graphically.
