Default Drone spoons

What's the fastest you can troll the large ones behind a planer cleated off to the transom? Will they still flutter and run properly at around 9-10 knots?

7 knots is the sweet spot for us.

Agree but I would think they would have the same action a little faster

Yeah I'm sure they wiggle just the same, just faster. But our planers tend to blow out if pulled over 7 knots, and you hit a swell that kicks the speed up a bit. Then you risk wrapping the lines or popping the rubber band prematurely. No one want's a premature pop.

I'm thinking about running a #12 high speed planer about 50-60 feet off the cleat to keep it down far enough hopefully. I'm gonna give it a try anyway, best case scenario we catch em...worst case we don't, or end up with a funny story to report back with.

Yall ever try running your surface wahoo lures (black bart type weighted skirts) behind a planer?

For pulling skirted wahoo lures absolutely. If I were targeting kings with spoons, I’d use a planer.

I mean instead of a planer for the spoon?

I know a trolling lead for jet heads and things is the norm, I'm just asking if anybody has tried running a skirted wahoo lure behind a planer before and if so what were their results?
