Planer Boards... Which type?

Question

Moose-Hunter

Howdy All....

Let me start out by telling you I'm on a "less-is-more" kick around my place right now and it applies to my boat as well.

Now..... Let's talk planer boards....

I currently have both type of boards. I have (2) of the small in-lines type and (2) of the large, mast style type. And the mast of course. Both have there place in how I fish, which type can I do without?

I like the little boards because they are so quick to bring into action. Excellent for smaller waters where trolling runs are not very long. Easy to store. And I tend to use these more often than the mast style boards. BUT... After the strike, you end up with quite a handful before you're in touch with the fish.

The large mast style bords are nice in they're own respect, due to the fact you run them basically like downriggers. At the strike, Mr. Fishy pops the line out of the clip and you're off to the races without have to remove anything from the line. Sort of a pain to set up, compared to the in-line models, but once trolling, a pleasure to use. A pain to store due to size. Also, tough to use on smaller waters due to short trolling runs.

I'm riding the fence on this. I fish about a 70/30 split, small to large waters.

What do you folks think?

Thanks for your input....

Well let me know which you would like to let go because I am in the market for a mast and boards. I would like to have them for Lk. Superior before June.
