Trolling question

1245 6
I have recently gotten into trolling with planer boards. I have a crap load of f11's and bombers from my whipping days, how do I troll with them on planer boards if possible? TIA

Think few different ways, in line weights, off shore tadpoles and probably using a 3 way swivel. Would be a few of my suggestions.

Snap weights would also work

If you can find some good weed beds, you can troll them over the top without any extra weight.
I'll go ahead and write the lead core reply;)

Beware though, this can lead to buying more reels - 3, 5, 7 color, and a full core right off. Keeps your ebay skills up;)

My ebay skills....lmao thanks for the much needed info
I typically adjust my boards to different depths. The deepest I go is 1/2 the distance of the bottom. i.e. 18 ft deep, my deepest is running 9ft and I go up from there. I use the trolling app to figure out lead distance and such. If you need to get deeper put on a 1/2 or 1 oz bead chain inline sinker. Set one side at several different depths and make the opposite side and if nothing after awhile change it up.
Good luck
