Church Tackle Stern Planers are an all new type of professional grade planer. These planers can be staggered to allow for more lines to be run off the back of the boat. Now you can set the lure down to the desired depth and maintain the depth at any distance you choose behind the boat. You don’t have to retrieve or reposition Stern Planers when retrieving your side planers, which gives you added fishing time.

Stern Planers are great for trolling in congested areas and for more effective contour trolling along drop offs, contour lines, reef edges and weed lines in rivers, lakes or the ocean. Take advantage of the prop wash, which moves disoriented bait-fish, sediment and bugs around that attract fish. Although their primary use is as a stern planer, they can also run off of outriggers or be used as buoy markers.

In addition, Stern Planers may be used to take the memory out of mono line that has been spooled a long time on a reel. It attaches to the line with a clip on the nose and a quick snap swivel in back; providing speedy and simple attachment or removal. Stern Planers are not just for walleye; they are effective for all species including pike, musky, salmon, trout and panfish. Stern Planers have so little drag, that you can still see the action of the lure at the rod tip while anchored fishing the river current.

Features of Church Tackle Stern Planers include:

  • Can be staggered
  • Fish at different depths and distances
  • Minimal drag
  • Size TX-007 includes a drain
  • Suitable for salt water or fresh water

Church Tackle Stern Planers are made in the U.S.A.

 Great Product
Pros: High Visability, Engage and disengage quickly, durable., Keeps lines from getting tangled
Cons: Small line clips hard to put on line at times.
Comments: I use four of the Stern planers straight out behind the boat when trolling for huge Blue Catfish. This allows me to visually see where the lines at any given time. I use them both fishing on the bottom as well as using them as, large corks, for suspended fishing off the bottom. I also use two down lines besides them and 2 planer boards out each side.

I am interested in some of these Church Stern Planers. I see you carry 2 different sizes.There is no description on the uses of both sizes. Could you tell me the uses of the smaller vs the larger planer? Thanks.

The TX-007 is 10 1/4" and is primarily used for bigger baits for fish such as walleye. The TX-005 is only 7" and is more suited for smaller baits, trolling for smaller fish such as trout and panfish.
