put in at miller rd and trolled to the point 50ft, 80 back with 2oz inline worm harness for the one eye we hooked, got off at the net. also no perch bite at the wreck. a question for all you trollers with boards and dipseys, a couple of times my lines got crossed from the planer over the dipsey, and actually thats how the eye came in. how do you avoid this? wasnt makeing sharp turns or anything, also do you send out one first before the other? any pointers would help.

Sure no expert...have had similar problems with board lines and dipsy lines. (Dipsys are inside lines, boards are outside.)

One fix is to run jets off your boards. Let them out straight off the back of your boat. Jets float when freespooled. Do the same with the board. That floats the bait, jet and board out beyond and above your dipsy line. When you stop letting out line and put rod in holder, the board will pull the jet outside your dipsy.

It seems to me, the longer your lead (board to inline), the greater the chance of problems with dipsy lines.

If possible, always set your outside lines first.

Object of a board is to get your bait away from the boat and can move further away than a Dipsy. The board will also allow for shallow presentations as well as deep.

The Dipsy is strictly a deeper running tool and is limited in the type of baits it can effectivly handle while the board is not.

The board should be set first and furthest out, then the Dipsy closer in and running deeper.
