Ever, what line do you use for planer boards?
Line 'em up The line coming from the forward-most rod holder will become the 'outside' line. Its planer board will be let out farther to the side than the line closer to the back of the boat, which is the 'inside' line.

As a general rule of thumb, you can expect around 15ft (5m) of depth for each 30ft (10m) of planer line deployed. Theoretically, for any given size of planer and constant towing speed, the more planer line you let out the deeper the planer will dive.
Planer boards are designed to help fishermen cover more area, and reach places they would not have been able to reach by regular fishing methods. They are especially effective for trolling. When fish hear the sound of the roaring engine of a boat, most will swim to a safer location.
It's called the Rule of Fives. When trolling at 5 mph with 5 ounces of weight and 50 feet of line out, your lure will be about 5 feet below the surface. Of course, it's rare that you'll be going exactly 5 mph, using exactly 5 ounces, and letting out exactly 50 feet of line.
With heavy bottom bouncers I have found that Church Tackle Walleye Boards perform very well. Some planer boards will simply not pull those heavy weights very far out to the sides of the boat the way Walleye Boards will.
Walleye anglers should pay attention, as the same is often true when pulling segmented leadcore in open-basin situations. Attach planer boards above leadcore a few feet on the backing to avoid ruining the lead inside your line, and cover various depths via your 3-color, 4-color, or more segmented leadcore rods.
