has any one uesed planner boards to drift?if so any tips on them for me
Try the above link, or you can do a search for planer boards using the search option at the top of the page.
If you're going to be drifting at the same speed as the current, planer boards won't work; there has to be a difference in speed between your rod and the current. So, if you use a trolling motor to make your boat go slower than the current, there's your difference in speed; they will work. But floating downstream at the same speed as the current is the same as sitting still in a lake as far as planer boards go.
thanks guys. i fish in lakes when i'm drifting.my poles tend to bunch together.i'm trying to space them out
I've tried planer board drifting on the lake. I don't drift fast enough for my boards to work. Mine need to be going a bit above 1 mph. to work. Somebody might know of some that work at slower speeds. I sometimes use longer (9-11') rods to get the baits out farther. However, I haven't found that I catch any more fish than when I use my 6'ers.
