Improve your fishing
Unlimited possibilities is the only way to describe what Water Bugz Side Planers can do for inshore fishermen. Whether you use rocket launchers, rod holders or just pvc pipe you can stand rods up or out in any fashion and still cover up to 100 foot of water in any boat.
Anchor near a grass bed or oyster bed and let out a mullet, sand flea or strip bait with a Water Bug and the current will plane the board over to that area and hold in place when you stop the reel.
Spread out, find the fish
Water Bugz Planer Boards are a simple and more affordable alternative to outriggers. When using this side planer, you expand your coverage from the width of the boat up to 100 feet. As we all know… more coverage equals better fishing.
Live bait fishing is most effective at less than 2 mph but Water Bugz can handle up to 3 mph. The slower you troll the more effective your live bait will be.
These bright orange planers will disturb the surface and act as a front-runner with the bait typically 10 – 40 feet behind the boards. With your wide coverage and separation of lines, you have the ability to turn 180 degrees in an acre of water. This gets you back to the action quickly.read more
