Got my first fish of 2023 and it was my first fish on my planer boards. It was in the 10 lb range.

I saw a good amount of bait suspended @ 15 ft and some fish below them. I set a bait out at 17 feet and attached it to the board. Had another one on the same board but it came unbuttoned some how.

I spent about 1.5 hours trying to catch bait with a cast net. I’m a total noob at throwing the net. It is harder than it looks. I can get the net to open on the throw but my distance is lacking. I’m sure if I can get some fresh bait my catfish game will go up a notch.

The photo below shows both of my boards deployed. I can get them spread out further if I want to. They work great.
