Best Trolling Board Period As a tournament angler you need the best equipment period. When I troll for walleye I use Off Shore planer boards to have a advantage over my fellow competitors. The tattle flag helps me detect the smallest of bites on my crankbaits. If you want this same advantage fishing against your friends, then you should also buy the Off Shore Planer Board! Ryan Wall #532 December 2, 2014
Quality product that lasts I purchased my first Off Shore Board 10 years ago and still have the original board. I would recommend the OR 18 black clips for the front so you can troll using both mono and super lines (braid, fireline) Well worth the purchase for a long lasting product. November 17, 2014
Offshore boards I have fished several major tournaments on Lake Erie and I can say Off Shore planer boards are one of they keys to my success. They are hands down the best and most durable planer board on the market. Teamed with the OR-18 clip and tattle flag they allowed us to land several Lake Erie slobs this year. November 12, 2014
Best Trolling Board The Off Shore Tackle In line is my board of choice. It is durable and runs true in the water. Add the tattle flag system to detect the light bite. This is a true trolling system that works great time after time. November 11, 2014

Details: 
The photo I'm looking at on your web site shows the red flag and the Or18 type line holder but the describtion does not say anything about the red flag tattle tail system that comes with some side planer boards from Offshore.

I want the Starboard side planer board with the red flags tattle tail system that's adjustble with a spring set in several different hole locations and that has the two clips with the one that works with the fireline brand of fishing line. The newer quick release that works with slippery lines of smaller line diameters.

A: 
The boards come with a stationary flag. There is now a second option to upgrading to the Tattle Flag system. You no longer have to buy the complete TF kit for upwards of 20.99 per. Off Shore Tackle now offers an "Economy Kit" upgrade. This upgrade is on average half the price of the original kit. Prices will vary from retailer to retailer too. It will not include another flag, like the original kit does. It will have the wire arm, spring, washer, and split ring needed to upgrade your boards to the Tattle Flag system. Hope this helps.

The OR12 planer baord comes with a flag not the OR12TF tattle flag kit. The tattle flag kit is a seperate item that is added to the OR12 planer board. Well worth the cost. I have had my OR12 boards with OR12TF tattle flag kit for at least 8 years, and they work perfect. I replace 2 springs a couple of years ago, not bad for 8 boards in 8 years.

A: 
The inline board pulls your bait away from the boat and allows several presentations off each side while trolling. The bait while trolling sets itself and the board will wiggle like a big bobber or you add the tattle flag to see a light subtle bite. Hope this helps

A: 
The board will pull your crank bait. Just as if you are casting a crank bait, when the fish strikes... the hooks set. No setting of the hook is required, as the bait does it for you.

A: 
Your fishing line is attached to the OR12 planer boards. As you let line out, the blaner board angles away from the boat taking your line out. Great for trolling so your fishing lines do not get tangled. When a fish strikes your lure/bait on the line the planer board is removed from the line as you reel in the fish. You can also use planer boards from shore in rivers with current.

A: 
Run the bait to the side of the boat. They can also be used bank fishing along moving water. You can hook it to your line let place it in the water and the current will pull you bait all the way cross the stream if you let it.

A: 
Imagine you are trolling. Without a planer board, your line is directly behind the boat. With a OR12 planer board, your line is attached to the planer board. Letting line out from your reel, the planer board angles away form the boat as far as you let more line out. Now instead of you line being directly behind the boat, it is now 100 ft or 75 ft or 50ft to the side of you boat covering more water. A must if you are trolling.

A: 
I let my line out as deep and as far as I want. For example I troll lures flat line off the back of my pontoon, say 100 foot. I think attach the side planar and let out 25 more of line. This takes the line off to the side and away from my boat. The planar board will be drawn down and back if there is a hit. Tattle flags, if attached, will directly signal a hit. Just reel it in and take off the board as it comes up. Some boards can be reeled all the way up.

Staff Answer
A: 
To attach the board to the line, simply squeeze the releases on the board and slip the line in between the two pads. Tips online through Off Shore: http://www.offshoretackle.com/questionsplanerboards.html.

My dipsy divers will not plane out to the side so i was wondering if i could use one of these. I troll at 1.5 mph which i think is too slow for the dipsy to plane out.

A: 
Yes. Off-shores will pull your dipsy's to the side. Keepin mind though, the more weight you have pulling on the back of that board and the faster you go, you boards are not going to act properly. I have ran mini umbrella rigs that have 5 1/4 oz. dollflies, metalwire frame and a 1 oz. weight off of the off shore boards. They just won't plane out as far with a lot of weight and high speeds. 1.5 will be a good speed with minimal weight on the board to run it as far off your boat as you like.

My guess would be no since the divers would pull the planer down under the water. But just a guess. YOu can get dipsy divers with a rotation knob that makes them flair out to either side.

Other items needed?

Details: 
I am wanting to learn to use planer boards but have never been around them. Do you need anything else to make them work or is the planer board a stand alone...just hook it to your line and let it out operation. I see planer board reels and line available, do I need these also?
Thank You for your help

The planer board will work right out of the package. There are different releases (clips) for super lines. The OR12 planer boards come with mediun tension releases, great for mono and most lines.

A: 
The Off Shore Side Planer connects directly to the line on your fishing rod. To use the OR-12, a Trolling rod works best. There is good info for using side planers available online. You only need planer reels and a mast when you are using the large skis.

Rigging for Stripers

Details: 
I am going to be trolling for stripers on Lake Cumberland (KY). I do not have access to live bait, what would you suggest for rigging to be used along with the offshore planer board. Please be fairly detailed, I am new to trolling and crank baits. I grew up using live bait only. How long of a leader? What type of crank bait/diver etc. would you use? Include a link to an example if you can. Thank you in advance.

A: 
I am certainly no expert, but I would recommend a leader no longer than your rod. I use one about 4-5' long and prefer 20 lb fluorocarbon. I use nothing other than 2/0 Gamakatsu octopus or octopus circle hooks. I run three boards off of each side (Offshore) and usually 2 back lines with release floats (that you can pick up at the Bass Pro in Jamestown or the one on US 90) and at least 1 down line. I Carolina rig all of my rods using egg sinkers and Offshore Tackle crane swivels. I vary my speed and my depth until I find something that works. Why don't you have access to live bait? Shiners that you can purchase at the bait houses work, just not as well as the Alewives. I also pull a lot of umbrella rigs. I use 30-40 lb big game line on 9' dipsy diver rods with fairly large line counters (25's and 30's). I use the Cumberland Pro spinner jigs exclusively. I recommend going to their site and checking them out. You can also get set up for downrigging, but I don't use this much except in the fall when the stripers get below 40'. Otherwise, it is bait on boards or umbrella rigs in terms of trolling. Casting the banks at night in winter and spring is also productive, but it is not trolling. Some people troll minnow baits and shad baits (Gizz 4's) on leadcore and snap weights and even without any weight when they are shallow in the spring back in the creeks, but I have not done well with that. I also recommend hiring a guide for at least one trip. It is money well spent. Tell the guy in advance that you want a learning trip or you could be back at the dock in an hour with a limit.
