Planner board & 3 way rig

Recommended Posts

Bud

Can a guy use a Off Shore planner board with a 3 way rig or is there to much tripping of the flags?

I guess you could use a 3-way off a planer board, but I'm not sure why you'd want too. I usually only use 3-ways in situations where you have a lot of depth changes so I'm constantly bringing in line or letting out line to stay on the bottom without dragging, or in rivers where there's a lot of current. I've never used boards in those situations.

I assume you're talking about tattle flags. I would think a 3-way would bury the flag, but you could still do it. Just watch the board to see if you have a fish or are dragging on the bottom.

You might want to look at either snap on weights or Bass Pro has Keel weights that are used with or with out Planer baords. On the Next Bite show this week they were using them with planer boards and spinners. They are painted in different fish colors to be used as a attractor. Gary and Keith came up with them after trying something similar in tourneys. I bought a few the other day adn look forward to using them. They are in the BPS catalog. They were using with the tattle flag and had no problems.

No need for a 3 way when snap weights do the same thing and can be taken off when reeling in fish. A 3 way would have to be fished close to your bait and thats not always good. In cases where you want the weight 10-25' or so behind the bait a snap weight is a better choice.

Another option may be a dypsie diver or jet diver.

hi bud justgive you some info from experienc. I use a 3 way on boards alot no flag i jiust wacth boards for drag of sway back to see if i have a fish. if you want to be on bottom or real close it works great adjust dropper length and leader length some . i use floating minnow baits and spinners with this rig. i find snap weights are gReat but the variables line out and boat speed is very critical so if you want to bottom or close i think a 3 way is great plus its no so obvious in clear water in staiNed water you can paint the bell sinker any color you wish if needed good luck DLK.

      The article "The skinny on bulls" is spot on! I am going to briefly add a couple points that may help understand this bite. First, the north end/side is better than the rest of the lake, If all other conditions are equal. Second, muddy bottom is king, and I think I can explain why and exactly what to look for. Once the edges of the lake melt away the connecting ice and the snow has melted away the ice will typically rise/float up. The pencil reeds are mentioned as being prime structure but they actually provide very little cover under the ice. What they do provide is bugs that get dislodged when the reeds are pulled up with the floating sheet of ice and the rootball pulls out of the mud. Those bugs/invertabrates then rise to the bottom of the ice, providing an easy meal for panfish. When I am fishing this pattern I drill holes all over the emergent reed patch with my 10" blade. This will provide a nice "window" and will they rarely freeze up this time of year, in fact some will probably get larger as warm surface water goes through them. Then you won't need anything but a rod to fish the next day. I will generally hop from hole to hole dropping my presentation just a foot or maybe two under the ice, give it a few shakes while watching for incoming fish and after a minute or usually less, I move to the next hole and repeat. Man, have I caught some nice fish with this pattern!! I generally leave the vexilar, portable and auger at home once holes are drilled. Things that I do bring are a rod or two with 6-8 pound test, Waxworms or gulp, a bucket and a 14'-16' 2x12 plank to get out to the walkable ice. If you haven't read the article on the home page yet, you should, since this is just an added supplement to that well timed article. Stay safe and good luck. Keeping the 8"-9" gills and 10"-12" crappie to eat and the larger ones to spread the superior genetics will result in larger fish each year. See you out there!😉🎣

      16 foot Lowe Roughneck modified V hull for sale. Bought new in 2016. Has the optional floor and casting deck installed as well as a gun box. Powered by a 25hp Mercury fourstroke on the back and a 55lb Minnkota powerdrive bow mount trolling motor. Only reason I’m looking to sell it is because I’m upgrading to a larger full time fishing boat. This boat has been used primarily fishing but has seen time both duck hunting and bowfishing. Asking $8500 or best offer. Email to [email protected] works best for starting the conversation.

      There is a crust cret jigs but the side by side was moving around well. The access is getting soft Baxter would be easier on and off. I think you come in from the west side of blue so you would be ok. The ice was around 24-30 inches
