Plugs and Planer Boards
In early spring countless anglers in the Great Lakes region target brown trout using plugs made more efficient with the help of in-line planer boards. High action plugs like the Yakima Mag Lip do a great job of imitating one of the most abundant forage species in the Great Lakes. The Round Goby has exploded in numbers and brown trout are quick to capitalize on this forage of opportunity. Using planer boards to spread out lines, cover more water and target spooky fish makes for the perfect spring trolling presentation and lots of rod pounding action.
