How To Troll Deep Easier

Essential skills for every angler

Troll Deep Easier Fishing
Steve Sanford

Snap swivels and rubber bands make deep trolling with planers simple and quick. Start by setting the planer while idling forward. Deploy a bait and drop it back the desired distance. Attach a rubber band to the fishing line with a Prusik knot and attach a snap swivel. Clip the snap swivel to the planer’s line and let the drag created by the water pull the bait down toward the planer.
