Planer Board Setup
« on: April 24, 2014, 11:21:52 pm »
I just got my first boat and getting into fishing in the great lakes. Im looking for suggestions on what planer boards to get. I don't have down riggers yet and probably won't have the cash tip buy them tip later this summer or in the fall, as I'm busy buying other stuff for my setup. I plan on ontario a couple more times than fishing erie once the ice is gone for pickerel. Any suggestions?

For walleye my money is on offshore inline boards.  Very versatile also.  Use them for walleye, rainbows, lakers and browns.

Two #1 dipsy divers.  Good to go for both Lakes.  Two Off Shore planer boards for L.O. & L.E. 24/7 and now it seems 365 also.  Some local shops carry a less expensive knock-off of these boards.  If I remember right, they are green in color with someone's name advertising on them.
