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.

      Dang, pulled the battery and put her in storage just last week or that sounds like fun. With all this wet weather it has really put me behind on getting all the fall chores done before hunting season and the winter hits and I need get the sled and ice stuff ready.  I had breakfast at Our Place just this morning coming down from Ely and was thinking of all the rides I have done in that area the last few years.  Lets try to set up a ride-trout outing next spring. 🙂

      Fishing Friday and Saturday was a dramatic shift. Seems the west wind got them going. Found a reef on Friday that was loaded up with fish and they were hungry. Fished it for a few hours before losing the battle to the cold. 3 pig smallies up top in 18-20 feet, 3 keeper walleyes between 16-18" and one 25" on the sides of the reef to the transition in 24-30 feet, and 2 jumbos off the transition in the mud at 32 feet. Also lost a BIG fish--the kind that your heart sinks when it comes off the line.    Saturday was more of the same. Biting a little lighter but we managed 6 walleyes from 15-19" in between the rain and getting blown off the lake. Could've easily limited if not for some "miscues"   Did try a little bit of trolling close to dark but only picked up a small muskie. Lots of guys out trolling all weekend but I'm not sure if they were going for walleyes or muskies. Interested to know if anyone on here was one of those guys and will give a report.    Wish I was starting my trip now instead of sitting at home. I think this is going to be a phenomenal week of fishing now that the weather is going to stabilize and warm up. Best of luck to everyone the rest of the year and stay safe. Saw some of the biggest waves I've seen on vermilion with the wind last week. Can get hairy pretty quickly out there

      We saw some late birds today also in west central MN.  The beans looked horrible and most corn was still in.  In 2 hours of driving I only saw three corn fields being combined each way.   We saw birds and got some roosters.  About 30% mature to 70% juveniles, not counting those late birds that didn’t fly well.  Birds seemed really jumpy today - odd for opener.  Flushing wild like late season.   Man, my pheasant legs ain’t what they used ta be! 😨

      I was wondering if raps at 2 mph would work now. Will the fish still chase them down when the water temps are in the low 40s?

      Thanks for the water temps. Unfortunately my depth finder temp gauge was correct.
