planer rigger releases

Recommended Posts

ive never used planer riggers but seeing as how i mounted a duel electric mass i believe ill be using one. was wondering what everyone prefers using for releases and were best place to order them is, before i invest more money unwisely.was thinking the offshores but like i said i got no clue.

ill be fishing salmon in algoma or kewaunee. ill be pulling 27# leadcore with 50# powerpro backer with a piece of 30# mono for connecting the release; thanks to all of you for the info on the line setup.lures i have are spoons, flasher/fly combos and j plugs.its my first time with my own boat so trying to learn. ive been out a fair amount with others in the past 30 yrs, mostly charters, but have never seen anyone run planer mast.

I like the offshore releases but i mainly use my mast system for walleye fishing. when i fish salmo i go to inline boards. If i were to use my mast system i have a bunch of the orange offshore heavy tension planer releases that i would use. i dont think the black have the holding strength for the heavy lines.

I used a mast the last two years on my old boat, and now that i'm using inline planers, I miss my big boards. I think i'm going to install two masts on my new boat, as I hate fighting the inline boards. I used the scotty mini releases, and they worked flawlessly. Here is a link for them at BPS.

I have used everything that's out there at one time or the other. When its said and done I like the Offshore Release or shower curtain rings and rubber bands. Nice part about rubber bands is you will get no false releases.

I use the offshore or18's (I think). they are black and have a flipper lock dealy so they stay put. Doesn't matter if using braid or mono.
