Default Planer with drone spoon

I have tried pulling a planer with these drone spoons with no luck. Do you hook a bait to them or pull them bare?

No bait.
I would run at least 50' behind the planer

What size planer? What color spoon? How long of leader you running? How deep are you running it over?

Leader is good, planer has to be a 3. A 1 is really small. Want to run the blue spoon too.

What area are you fishing in?

Around here we want to pull them between 80ft to 180ft of depth.

Use a bigger planer. Color of spoon is irrelevant.

What are you trying to target? What you described is a mishmash of setups. The spoon is too big for the planer, a #1 should probably only be used with up to about a 00 or 0 size spoon. For a size 2 spoon a #4 or #6 planer would be more appropriate, especially in those depths.

Also, you need to find the bait and fish around it.

where you fish would help as well. 80í to 120í is packed with life in south Florida.

If you have a #3 planer and trolling that depth, you should be on some fish.

Just outta curiosity, when your trolling. How does the rod tip look? Is it bent over or is it running with a slight bend in it/pointing up?

#3 planer, next question is how much line are you letting out with your planer? I put my #3 planer 100 yards out on 65lb high vis braid, then off the planer is an 80 ft leader. RJ Boyle rigged that way, nailed a good size King using a crystal/pink seawitch over a bonita strip. For spoons give a #2 spoon a shot on that #3 planer.

Its all about finding the bait. If you're not marking bait, you won't find fish.

What size reel and what pound test line are you running? A #3 1/2 Drone spoon or seawitch and strip are ideal. Fish them at least 50' past the planer.

Do you have anything stouter than a TLD25? Going to be seeing lots of drag 20,30+ lbs as you pull these planers and larger. Check out wind on planer bridles, game changer.
