I saw a guy at the Eklutna Tailrace last year with a planer out in the current. He said his son used them all the time and he was trying it. This idea seems like a good idea for say the mouth of Montana Creek where it flows in to the susistna. You don't have to worry about drifting and casting all the time. Anyone else tried it, it would only work in a moderate to fast flowing river. I would think it would work with any of the fast flowing glacial rivers, maybe a spin and glow with eggs attached. Even a wiggle wart or kwikfish.
