Off Shore Planer boards-one way of salmon fishing

   The discussions are already on about the use of planer boards, dipsies, and every other kind of board or disc you can think of.

   "This would be a great time to use a Off Shore Planer Board," Off Shore owner and consummate fisherman, Bruce DeShano messaged a few days ago.
   This was in response to my blog about salmon fishing from a kayak in Lake Michigan. Some people opine they are for them and have caught lots of salmon using them, while others talk about the drag it puts on the side of the boat the board is on, making paddling different.
   I don't have a comment one way or the other other than to say I've caught loads of fish from larger boats using boards.
   That's why, this year, I'm going to take a long some small Off Shore boards and give them a try. To battle the boat control, I think I'll throw one out on each side. That way I can fish two different depths with two different baits.

   We'll see if this method gets them.
