I recently purchased a couple 8'6" extendable Cabela's Depth Master III trolling combos, and some off shore planer boards.  

How do you guys set up your trolling rods for planer board trolling?  Line type? Test? Any backing? etc.   Messenger should be turned on if you want to write there as well.

Will just be trolling small to medium size cranks for eyes.  

Thanks!
