Off Shore Tackle In-Line Side Planer Board
Off Shore Side Planer Boards are designed for stability and performance. Off Shore Side Planer Boards are properly ballasted to run in rough water and at ultra-low speeds. These in-line planer boards are excellent for deep-diving crankbaits and for use with leadcore. The OR-12 has taken all the abuse these hard fishing professionals could dish out and performed with walleye, salmon, steelhead, stripers, muskie and even sailfish and dolphin.
- Includes: RO-19 release, OR-16 clip, stationary flag, 6/32 screw, nylon nut, split ring, and instructions

Great product. Tough and runs true
by Doug Wood
The boards are great but for the life of me I dont understand why they would send them with the front release thats provided they are useless.
Simple ideas are often the best

Each November my mates & I spend 2 weeks trout fishing in Australia's Snowy Mountains lakes. We are avid trollers using mainly shallow running lures and always looking for an edge over each other. Last year one mate produced an Offshore Tackle side planer and sent it out from the boat into the shallows near the lake's edge. When he picked up a couple of nice fat brown trout, I knew I had to have a planer. I could not find one in Australia so when I found some online at Fish USA, and the Aussie $ was worth[$] US cents, I decided to buy two - left & right.The great advantage of using the side planer is that you can get it in close to the bank where the boat can't go. When fishing in deeper water it gets the lures out away from the boat so it is less likely to spook fish. It also allows the driver & passenger to run two lines each with less risk of tangles. Can't wait for November!

Tattle flag expensive but needed for light bite detection
We call them ducks

We use them fishing for trout in alpine lakes. They allow you to run 4 lures behind the boat without the risk of a tangle. You can run a lure 10 metres behind the planer and send it in close to the bank without running the boat aground. You can use them with leadcore or monofilament lines, but using them with braid is a bit tricky. I don't own a boat but have 3 friends who do. I have bought them all a set of left and right planers, so it doesn't matter whose boat I am in.
