I know even more about planar boards than you do about yote hunting. Perhaps I can shed some light.

We currently use church boards for lead core only but I have successfully run up to 12oz weights off of them with braided line. Thats a delicate setup, but it can be done. We just use the regular size, I guess they would be the smaller of the two, about the size of an offshore. I have no idea what on earth the larger ones are for, whales maybe. I would wager that in 1 foot seas running a 2 oz weight you would not even notice a 4 pound walleye bite on the larger church board.

The guys that tell you they dive are both right and idiots. They dive when you get them close to the boat when you retrieve them if you are holding the rod tip high. This probelm can be fixed by pointing the rod tip down at the water while you reel the board/fish in and when you feel the board is close enough just pop it out of the water and keep it out until you can reach it and remove it. That fixes the diving problem. Once you see one dive you will figure out in two seconds what needs to be done to prevent it. I've never seen a properly deployed church board dive for no reason while trolling and i've watched them for at least 5,000 hours.

Off shores are a crumby board. I fished with a guy once who used them and I hated them. They track worse than a yellow bird at twice the weight.

Run braid on your church boards. Wrap the line behind the little pinch pad so the board won't slide during battle.

Dipsy off a church board is pretty chotched up. Thats all i've got to say about that.


Nice walleye :thumbsup: Keep after em.

If that thing had twice the holes in it, I'd say it was the "board of education" the old school principal tried to wear out on my behind. It didn't even come close to Grandpa's razor strap though.

Nice walleye :thumbsup: Keep after em.

we use the offshores for walleye, they work good with the tattle flag but I would like something that tracks a little better for salmon/steelhead
this is where I got the idea for the dipsy


do you use the walleye boards or the 22's?
is the 22 bigger than the walleye board?

We use walleye boards.

That 44 thing was massive. I guess you might need that or a big bird to run a magnum dipsy with a dive ring but I have never encountered a situation where I thought running a dipsy off of a board would be effective.

I don't know what a 22 is. Our church boards say walleye board or church tackle on them. They should track better than off shores no matter what tackle they are pulling.

yesterday's trip...
the specks were not doing much, So I jumped out of the boat with a cast net and caught 80-100 finger mullet on the beach and we went to the shallow water rigs. We caught 20-25 bull redfish 15-20 lbs., 4 Lane Snapper-one went 3.75 lbs (was the biggest lane snapper I've seen to date...it was a nice fish indeed), 1 8 lb. grouper, and I boated a 27 lb. Jack Cravele that I thought for sure was a big Cobia...he was shaking his head like a cobia-very unusual behavior for a jackfish...never know what you are gonna catch at the rigs-that's for sure.

That is an awesome lane snapper. I caught one that was just over 12 inches once and thought it was huge, but that one is huge, for a lane that is.

27lb jacks are fun as heck to catch. When they're under 10 lbs, they're annoying, but once they get over that, then its work!
It's a fact that 70 percent of the people who purchase heavier tackle do so with the categorical I just lost a huge snook! Einstein Hairdo.The other 30 percent have either Tarpon Fever or are sporting a hand cramped into a claw from a deepwater grouper.

Hey GS, That Lane Snapper was 19" long.
State record for Lane Snapper is 6.62 lbs. so that gives you a reference point.
of the other three lane's we caught, 2 measure 14" and one went 16" :thumbsup:

What amazed me though was the Grouper. that fish was caught in 36 ft. of water. usually this time of year all the grouper move to water at least 200 ft. deep.

got a tip for you GS that you need try over at gitmo. :thumbsup:






some of the guide here are buying these:
Image
it's a tea ball for brewing tea from ground tea leaves that you can buy in bulk.
the guides take these and attach them to the swivel on the leader, with the leader 5-6 ft. long. They make a concoction of fine sand, sawdust (or ground oats...acts as a binder), pogie oil, and ground shrimp heads or ground up pogies/sardines...what ever you can get. mix this up, fill the tea ball, drop it down with a baited hook. When you get to the depth you want to fish, shake your rod up and down and hold on! the tea ball chums the fish at the depth you are fishing and really helps turn the fish on. :thumbsup: order some and try it out! :beer:
