  • Our planer rod set up is ready to go right out of the box with no guesswork, time wasted on the fishing forums, or wasted money.
  • We offer three complete wahoo planer rod kit options – ranging from the more affordable Shimano TLD 50 set-up, to the cream of the crop Shimano Tiagra 50 and 80 combo kits.
  • Our planer rod kit starts with a Star Rods handcrafted deep drop 80 bent butt rod with lifetime warranty – enough backbone for planer fishing, but also outstanding sensitivity for folks who keep a keen eye on rod tips.
  • Reel choices consist of Shimano TLD50, Tiagra 50WLRSA, or Tiagra 80W; we’ve found that as with most offshore trolling applications, Shimano reels are the best way to go for long term durability when building a planer rod kit.
  • We spool the reel with 400 yards of 130lb Diamond Braid (200lb on the 80W), tied to a custom, hand made planer bridle.  An Old Salty #16 planer is standard with our 80W kit, a #12 comes with the Tiagra 50 kit, and our TLD50 kits come with a #8.  100 feet of 150lb mono is next on the list; ending with a Joe Shute Lures high speed wahoo lure.
  • Please allow 7-10 days for shipment due to the custom nature of this product.

 

 

Complete Wahoo Planer Rod Kit is ready to put big Wahoo in your boat

A complete wahoo planer rod kit is something many anglers need, but may not necessarily know where to start.  Also, it can be tough to determine what the best components are in terms of long term value and quality.  Our planer rod set up is ready to go right out of the box with no guesswork.  Forget about wasting time on the fishing forums, or wasting money.  We offer three complete wahoo planer rod kit options.  These range from the inexpensive Shimano TLD 50 set-up, to the cream of the crop Shimano Tiagra 50 and 80 kits.

What's in the box?

Our planer rod kit starts with a Star Rods handcrafted deep drop 80 bent butt rod with lifetime warranty.  This rod has more than enough backbone for planer fishing, but also outstanding sensitivity.  We can also upgrade to one of our custom planer rods.  Reel choices consist of Shimano TLD50 2 speed, Tiagra 50WLRSA, or Tiagra 80W; we've found that as with most offshore trolling applications, Shimano reels are the best way to go for long term durability when building a planer rod kit.  We spool the reel with 400 yards of 130lb Diamond Braid (200lb on the 80W), tied to a custom, hand made planer bridle.  An Old Salty #16 planer is standard with our 80W kit, a #12 comes with the Tiagra 50 kit, and our TLD50 kits come with a #8.  100 feet of 150lb diamond leader is next on the list; ending with a Joe Shute Lures high speed wahoo lure.

These set-ups are extremely effective, and a great buy if you're looking for a turnkey wahoo rig.  Please allow up to 7-10 days for shipment due to the custom nature of this product.  Lead time with our custom planer rod is 3 weeks as these are built to order.  Once you've placed the order, we'll contact to confirm wrap colors and boat name, etc.
