Sea Striker® Planer
The Sea Striker® Planer takes your lure down deep without using heavy sinkers. While in the trolling position, the Sea Striker Planer runs at a 45 degree angle. When a fish is hooked, the planer returns to the surface. Features a rugged stainless steel blade and a large brass ring for a clean trip. Nylon locknuts won't come loose.

Rated 4 out of 5 by profkorn Does the job Affordable, works as advertised. construction did not disappoint. Be sure to get the size for the lure you want to submerge. If the planner is too small, the lure will trip in and come to the surface on its own. May 15, 2013

Details:There are 4 different sizes, how do I determine which size I should buy?
Details:Not sure how this gets properly attached to the line and lure / bait side? Looks like there is a ring on one end that slides up and down on the mecanism to cause it to either stay at a 45 to keep it down as well as swing back up to the surface, but the opposite end is a little confusing. do you tie line direlty to it? big gapp... also how much line between this and the bait?
A:Tie it right on. line between the planner and your lure will vary. 12-18 inches should be good. Not really rocket science.
A:great trick is to attach your planer line (80-100lb test) to the front ring and let out desired amount of line and tie off to a cleat. cast your lure out the back of the boat 20'-50' and put your rod in a holder. clip a snap swivel to your planer line and then fold a rubber band (shaped like a horse shoe)around your fishing line and clip to the snap swivel, let it go and it will slide down to the planer. when a fish strikes it pops free and you just fight the fish, to redeploy your line you dont have to pull up the planer which is a pain just clip on a nother snap and rubber band. at the end of the day all your snaps will be resting on the planer and you can use them again next time
A:Check out the Sea Striker web site. I use 20 ft of 20 lb mono between the planer and the lure.
A:Line to rod attaches to the ring. With a small weight towards the front of the planer, the ring seems to want to slide towards the back of the planer when trolling giving it the 45 degree angle. Also helps to place it in the water that way when letting it out. When a fish hits and hooks, the weight of the fish overcomes the 45 degree angle and the planer surfaces by the ring sliding back to the front of the planer. There is merely a hole in the back of the planer to attach a swivel and about 6 foot of leader(or more) to your lure. False or missed trips can usually be reset by a quick tug on the line.
