have any of you guys ever used plannerboards for your catfishing? a couple months ago i took a buddy to the wabsh for a little flathead trip, this fella is a pretty good angler, lots of time on the rivers. we set up at the mouth of a tributary with some log jams near by, i noticed one jam about 30yrds down stream on the opposite side of the river, as you know you cant verry easily cast across the current and get baits to hold without a ton of weight. my buddy got the biggest laugh when i busted out a board, but when he saw how precise a bait could be placed near a log jam he stopped laughing and said that might work, shure enough, 15 minuts later the board starts bobbing and heading downstream, a good hard yank to release the board and this was the results. 35# flattie. there are a few tricks to doing this, which i am still trying to perfect since this was a spur of the moment thought on how to get a bait in an abnormal spot, but never rule out trying somthing different, it just might work!
