Bottom Bouncers Yes … slip sinkers no. You also don’t want to use Bouncers and Boards in snaggy areas because it’s just too much of a hassle. In order to fish Bouncers on boards, you will to use a board that’s ballasted like Off Shore Tackle’s OR-12 Side Planer. These boards are ballasted with a lead weight attached to the bottom of the board. This will allow you to troll the slow speeds needed for effective bouncer fishing, without the board continually tipping over and not running correctly. Trolling Bottom Bouncer rigs on boards works especially well on slow tapering spots and flats where you want to spread your presentation, or are concerned about spooking shallow fish.
