Setting planer boards.

Recommended Posts

Hey guys im just wondering what you do when you pop a fish off a release and want to reset it. Do you just leave the clip out there?

I bought a Bert's planer mast last fall, so I'm new to this technique (used in-line planer boards). How do you slide the line down to where your line was released ?

Send your lure out to the distance you want, connect the line to the release and the release to the planer line. Let more line off the reel and the lure resistance will pull the release down and out on the planer line. Just stop letting out line when it gets to where you want it, make sure the drag is set properly and drop the rod in a holder. Repeat.

Just started last season. Takes a little getting used to but they work great.

They might not slide down initially. But after you a make a few turns they work their way down. If i run out of releases i will reel the board in and start over.

Let's say you have 3 lines out on each side. The one closest to the planer board releases and you land the fish. How do you move the 2 upper lines down closer to the planer board? Let more line out on each till they move down closer to the board, and then clip on another release and line?

Be sure to re-position your rods in the holders after you change thier location down the planner board line or you will have a mess.
