Planer boards

16 posts in this topic

Anyone got plans for planer boards? I was thinking about tackling a set as a winter project.

Vikings got the right idea. But can always copy a set. Problem with that is you have to run the to adjust them. Good luck.

The ones I have were made by the charter captain I bought my boat from, they are weighted and ready to troll. I will bring them up this weekend if you want to stop by and pick them up. If you don't want them let me know, I don't want to haul them up, if I am just going to be hauling them back.

I will be at Barkers island slip I6 from Thursday night till Sunday this weekend. hope to get out for the last weekend of laker fishing a couple times, weather permitting.

It seemed like there was a decent bite happening last weekend in 80 FOW.

Not a bad bite from 80 to 105 FOW. 210 to 220 deg from duluth entry 2 to 4 miles out. Fish were spotty but managed a limit between the 5 of us.

Good Luck

Wade, that would be about perfect, I will be there between 5:15 and 5:30 depending on traffic out of the cities. See you then. I have them the boards in the truck already. I will talk to you about few other goodies I am looking to get out of my garage before winter. You have a new boat your rigging, I have some things I am looking to get rid of but don't want to post them. I just want to see them get put to use.

Great to meet you Dave! Thanks for the offer of a reffreshing adult beverage, but I was driving the company vehicle, thats why I had to decline. I also wanted to say THANK YOU again for the boards. They will get me started into the world of planer board fishing as well as provide me a template to build new ones. If there is anything I can do for you.... I owe you one.

      We only fished for 5 hours (only 2 hours were worthwhile 29 ft).  
    • Sushilicious
      OK so day before father's day we had terrible weather. 1st spot was in 14 ft of current n we caught 4 eyes. Did c a sturgeon role but waste of time other than that. Next spot 6 eyes still a wasted time cause of the weather but the old man did caught a 20 in so it wasn't all that bad. But once the weather allowed we catch  26 eyes n in 29 ft of water n one was 24 in.

      Definitely have 2 disagree with with u 2. I understand the drive n the worry but if you've fished the csn chain for 10+ years there shouldn't be a worry 2 find a campsite cause you've driven past plenty of them. Also we're in the same boat regardless of the travel distance to fine a campsite. Yes it is nice 2 have a guaranteed spot but since they went 2 paid 2 camp regulation they have taken out a number of campsites so it limits options. ALSO U R WAY WRONG ON SAYING MORE PPL R AT THE PARK NOW. I went last Saturday  (day before father's day) n we seen like 4 or 5 more boats than canoes. It's nice for ppl who don't know the csn chain but it's terrible for the economy.   Fyi. First time I went fishing on the chain I went lake trout fishing on David......... I was 6 weeks old ......... I'm 32 now..... my dad's been fishing the csn chain for 65+ years    P.s. love how there's less pressure=better fishing.

      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!

      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      We will see if Sailorfly is another ask a silly question one hit wonder?

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan
