The Lindgren-Pitman LS Series Line Setters are designed to pull monofilament longlines from the hauling/storage spool at a rate equal to or faster than the boat speed, as desired. The line can be set with a predictable sag between floats for fishing baits both deep and shallow as required. Bait depth can easily be controlled by adjusting the line setter speed control. Line setting speed is displayed on an optional digital readout meter to ensure accurate and repeatable line setting.

Hook and bait depth are a function of boat speed / setter speed, distance between floats, and buoy line length plus gangion length. Using the specially designed chart provided with the LS series line setter the maximum hook depth for the particular conditions can easily be calculated.
