How far out do I run the bait behind the planer?
The tactics section will be of some help for your type of fishing but generally some where between 10-40feet works best. This has a lot to do with your fishing area, King Mackerel tend to like a bait a little closer to the board since they seem to be more aggressive while a Spanish Mackerel likes the bait farther away. But any time you run big bait you must run them close to the planer because this bait has the power to swim into the other lines. A ten-inch pogie would work best twenty feet behind the planer.
