I was looking at a plan to make your own dual planer boards out of wood. Is this a waste of time or doest it really work. New to this planer board thing not sure how it works. Some helpful would be great.

its not how to make them that is important, but the type of wood your going to use....

your going to need to have access to some harder to find wood.

I built a pair of my own a few years back and they worked fine, but too bulky and take up too much room in the boat. I gave them up in favour of in-lines. Now the home made ones live in the garage attic.

I just run the small in line boards. They work great as long as its not to rough out. I use the release on the front of board and a snap swivel on the rear of board. Put a small split shot a few feet up from the bait to stop the board from sliding down to the fish after it releases.

I run the in-line boards and love them.  I lock them in place and remove them as they come onboard.  Then you can fight the fish free from the board.

Offshore OR 16 / 18 releases for the offshore boards.  For the Church boards, an elastic band around the fron release clip will ensure its locked down tight.
