    Re: Planer board mast's

    Yeah I like the idea of covering ground that the boat has not gone over and spooked any of the fish. A planer mast is going on the top of my Christmas list this year. ;D

    I've been using the cannon manual planners and they work great, at times I will catch 3 to 1 of my buddies that just top line.

    Re: Planer board mast's

    I updated my sig. it shows my Big John now ;D
    Mast. ;D
    Took a 3/4 seat pin and welded it to the bottom of the pole.
    So it just plugs into the front seat location.
    Easy in easy out.
    I tie the port side line off to the trolling motor if
    extra support is needed.
    Also use a home made 3 board planer.
    Anchor point is critical on how it tracks.

    My planers worked great at Pyramid as well. I thought that was a planer fest!

    It would have to be at a big lake! All those boats pulling boards could take up a bit of room. My vote would be for tahoe.

    Re: Planer board mast's

    Thank you all for all of the input. It will help me justify my purchase as being a necessary tool for trouting. In the mean time I think SD's idea is great. Simply down sizing the outriggers you would find on a big blue water tuna chaser. Thanks for sharing the pics. I think I will try to take those one step further by adding a pulley on each end with a cord in between, so rerigging is easyer. Thanks again.

    Big Jon's are good. You may also want to look at these guys:

    Their planer masts are all CNC machined parts, almost works of art more than fishing equipment. I have one that has worked flawlessly for about seven years now. I also use the Otter Boat. I strongly recommend it - if you put a keel plate on it. I did so and mine now pulls like a Mack Truck. I can go out 50+' no problem (but rarely do so..).

    Takes less than 3 minutes to put the tower in place.
