To rig a threaded night crawler, I start
off by snelling a No. 6 bait holder hook
on the end of a 36 inch 10-pound test
fluorocarbon leader. Next I take out a
night crawler and slide it onto my worm
threader. If you’ve never seen a worm
threader, it is a simple wooden handle
with an 8-inch section of fine diameter metal
tube imbedded in it. The tip of the tube is
cut off on a sharp angle.
Once I have the ‘crawler impaled on the
threader, I slide it down to the handle. After
that I place the hook tip in the end of the
tube and pull it down tight by gripping the
leader against the wooden handle. The final
step is to slide the ‘crawler up the threader,
over the bend of the hook and down the

Trolling For Spooky Trout Holding
Near The Surface
Side planers are a highly effective
tool for presenting lures to fish holding
near the surface without spooking them.
While they are used extensively by
anglers in the Midwest and east, most
west coast anglers never give them a
try. Almost every serious west coast
trout troller you meet has downriggers,
but I’d be surprised if one in ten of
them had side planers. I’ve experi-
mented with side planers enough to
know that if we used them more we’d
find ourselves putting more trout in the
The uninitiated are probably asking,
“What is a side planer and how does it
A side planer is a piece of wood,
plastic or foam that when attached to a
line, travels away from a moving boat
based on its shape. These devices skim
along the surface and track along from
50 to 100 feet beside the boat with 20 to
100 feet of line tipped with a lure or bait
tailing out behind them. This enables the
angler to present the lure to trout without
moving through the area where the trout
are holding with the boat.
There are many different types of side
planers available to anglers these days.
There are small inline models that are
efficient, inexpensive and easy to use.
Sep’s Pro Fishing offers the Pro Side
Plainer. This inline plainer can be adjusted
to track either to the port or starboard.
To employ this type of plainer you let
your offering out the desired distance
behind the boat, attach the main line to
the plainer and then free spool the planer
out the desired distance to the side of the
boat. When a trout is hooked the plainer
partially disconnects allowing the fish to
be fought with minimal resistance.
