Video of setting up the planer board spread

Here’s a short video of my planer board set up. Something not mentioned in the video is my trolling motor speed, generally it varies from .3 mph to 1+ mph while pulling planers. Some baits will get a bit stressed at higher speeds so I’m usually moving pretty slow.
Another note is the length of line between the planer board and the bait. If I’m fishing in shallow water with big baits I usually don’t go any further back than 10 feet behind the board. When fishing open water like down the middle of a deeper creek, I’ll go back as far as 80-100 feet behind the board.
