Title: Question regarding Planer Boards..
Post by: CowDawg on February 24, 2016, 04:45:20 PM
Who uses a planer board mast? 
or
Who just attaches them to your main line?

I used to run them up on Lake Cayuga without a mast but it's a PITA when they pop off when sending them out or retrieving them.

So I'm considering getting a mast or making my own...
Suggestions??

My buddy runs planners on HARVEYS for TROUT..He had the SAME PROBLEM.
He made a HOME MADE MAST THAT FITS IN THE SEAT HOLE ON THE REAR CASTING DECK.WORKS Great,,

Yea I was thinking of something like that or galvanized fence post.

I do have the older style off shore boards..  its just a stationary flag and the 2 releases are not locking..  you don't set them perfect they pull off in choppy water.

I seen the rebuild kits with the spring loaded flag and locking releases.. I should just invest in them!!!!   Probably solve all my problems.

I only use 2 boards ever at a time. 1 off each side, and then 2 rods off the back flat lining.

Check out  the OR 16 or 19 releases from offshore. They have a pin in the pad so the line won't release. Replace the rear release with these and have fun. Been usein them the last 2 years for browns up here on Ontario and have not lost a board yet.
