Also pay attention to the wave direction. If it’s choppy but you are running parallel to the waves it will be a much smoother ride vs taking them head on.

They need to raise the minimum size and lower the limits. A 20" fish doesn't have much meat on it compared to a 28" fish, and that fish will have grown 8 inches in another month or two.

I believe planers are effective. I'm wondering if having the planer within 50' of every other lure in the spread is a problem, so should you run the rest of the spread further back or will the fish...

Is there any concern that running a planer in your spread near the deep plug or under surface lures might spook some fish? I guess if they get hit by wahoo or sharks from time to time they can't be...
