Yellow Bird planer boards allow you to cover areas you couldn’t cover before. They allow you to maintain your line in prime fishing areas without spooking fish.

The buoyancy of our boards allows you to carry lures and live bait up to 150 feet or more away from the side of the boat at variable depths.

Our boards can handle most types of lures and jigs in various water conditions. They can be used to troll a variety of crank baits, spoons, spinners, etc.

Yellow Bird planer boards continue to help fishermen find new ways to catch more fish.

For over ’45” years we’ve seen charter captains, guides, professional fishermen and everyday fishing enthusiasts use this product successfully…now it’s your turn to catch more and bigger fish!
