Taking Crappie To Church

Hey guys wanted to share a lil write up I did for a company. We have all heard about this fairly new technique taking off in Crappie fishing. If you're looking for a company that has great products that can help you perfect that new technique this is the one. Happy Holidays and stay warm!

The bells are ringing, the doors are open and people are walking in. Walking in where, you may ask, Church Tackle Co. Inc. product line. I know you’re thinking, what is this article about? The title caught your attention and thats my job as a writer and reporter. This article has nothing to do with a building where people worship but a company that is taking the crappiei market by storm.

Church Tackle Co. Inc. manufacturer of the highest performing trolling equipment and accessories in the fishing industry. Their number one product is Planer Boards. They love to say “We didn’t invent the planer board, we just perfected it”. Church Tackle planer boards are sold all over the world and are the first choice of recreational, charter and pro fishermen alike. Offering the largest selection on planer boards on the market and with their innovative designs ensure the best fishing experience.

Using planer boards for crappie is nothing new but has been getting a lot of attention lately. I was introduced to using planers two years ago at one of my Crappie Academies in Sevierville, TN on Douglas Lake. Several members from attended the class and told me that they use planers to catch crappie. This was my first time hearing about them being used to catch crappie but knew people used them when fishing for walleye and salmon. The next year we had our Crappie Academy on Chickamauga Lake in Dayton, TN where I had the opportunity to see this technique put to work. Ladies and Gentlemen, it works. Since then I have been searching for the best Planer Board company and I believe I have found it.

Keep an eye out for several announcements in 2014 about how Church Tackle will be getting involved in the crappie market. Visit their website -
