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 Price and Speedy Getting Here!

I buy a pair of Offshore 12s every year, and these are the cheapest that I have found. I troll for salmon, trout, and steelhead with them, pulling copper, lead, and mono. Love the way they cut the water and stay off to the sides of the boat. Also, was thrilled to have them show up at my door in only a few days after I ordered them. Great online store!

Everybody knows these boards are great and do a superb job of pulling heavy setups like 100 feet of leadcore, however, in this post I wanted to compliment the service I recieved from FishUSA. Not only I got a great deal on the boards (on sale with a good discount), I also picked free "economy" shipping option that was availalbe - I fugured I wouldn't need the boards until April anyway so why hurry, right? Nevetheless, the package showed up at my door in three days. Very impressed! Thank you FishUSA. I will keep ordering from you.
I have not used it yet.

It is a very sturdy board. It looks to me like the quality is very good. Instructions are easy to understand. I will let you know after this month how it performs.
Excellent boards! More salmon and steelies...

Easy to use boards that track nice and straight even if rough waters (we were in 7-8' rollers!!!). They hauled a 2oz snap weight and a variety of spoons and stick baits with ease. Produced fish. Didnt break in the many drops and tosses they have taken. What more can you ask for out of a planer board?

Have used them with braid (wrapped around the front clip) and 5 colors of leadcore and in pretty heavy waves and they've performed well.

I have not used them yet but I think that they are very well made and should work great.
Excellent! They really work and simple to deploy.
These are excellent. I tested mine with deep diving lures and despite their small size they really pulled the trolling lines well out and away from the boat. You can deploy and retrieve your gear in seconds with these. I bought two, one for port and one for starboard, although I was not too happy about the price - these would be more affordable if you got a two-pack for $36. Nevertheless, highly recommended.
Best way to troll for Walleye

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!

I need this planerboard in Switzerland. I am the only one who has this and it is the best one. A lot of fishers in Switzerland doesen't now this product and they are astonished. Very nice with the flag who is going down when a fish cath the bait.

Have used these for years. A good addition is the tattle flag kit. these work well in 2 foot or less waves at lower speeds.

The boards allow multiple lines to be set out using various lure presentations. They can detect fish strikes fairly regularly.
I bought 1 to try it out
I bought one to try on the big pond lake ontario this past thurday 4/22/10 near oswego ny, using a small 16 foot alum boat in 2-3 foot waves, close in to shore line followed directions 10-12lb test missed 1 fish after hook up trying to release the fish from the board to play him out to the boat. release's are very firm I storngly recommend getting the planner board to the boat then have your buddie grab the board and release it like that as with 2-3 foot waves you can loose site of the board while trolling 3 other rods and end up losing the board in the surf. I did mangage 1 13 lb brown trout after fighting him and the board to the boat then releasing the board to play the fish they work but have some limitations to playing the fish free of the board
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.

Tattle flag expensive but needed for light bite detection
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.
