Making your own planer boards

Question

Wade Joseph

Anyone got plans? Thought they shouldn't be too hard to make but was hoping someone has done it already and had plans.

A few years back we had a work shop and Surface Tension and others brought theirs in for us to check out and measure. I did a quick search to see if anything was posted on here, I saw a little bit. I'll see if I can dig up my notes.

Use cedar or clear pine, you need 2-1"x8"x6'

Board width is 16", height is 6 1/2", length is 34"

I couldn't find the measurements for the locations of the threaded rods or the eyelet. I'll measure mine out and post them tonight. For the angled edge cuts use a block on the circle saw to get more than a 45 degree cut.

For more reading on this forum do a search.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.

      They work. And as stated, sometimes better then live suckers! Cliff

      I can’t say Big Marine is a big fish factory but it should have nice clarity.  The main lakes of Minnetonka are pretty cool to play on.  Yeah, Minnetonka is a muskie lake but there are a lot of nice pike swimming out there.

      I’ve had the same issue with keeping them alive. Dead bait works way way better than live bait anyway. Defiently going to give that a try wanderer!
    • Wanderer
      I’ve saved dead/dying suckers before.  Pull them as soon as you can and freeze em.  I’ve sprinkled them with salt before bagging and freezing.  Fish them on the bottom. There was a time I targeted big pike with big minnows and would actually kill a minnow before sinking it to the bottom with one of my lines. As with everything, it’ll work better some places at some times, not as much as a live minnow other times.  Later season when pike cruise just below the ice scooping up the dead loss of the winter, suspending your dead sucker a foot below the ice can be your big fish ticket.
