Details

The mast is constructed of 6061 aluminum with a ⅛" thick wall to stand up to the load of two planers and multiple fishing lines!

All aluminum parts are precision machined on CNC Mills to insure an exact fit when assembled.

Big Jon offers you the option of a Pedistal Seat Mount that fits Springfield seat bases (the most common seat base used by American boat builders ).

Features:

  • Big Jon's Dual Manual Planer Rigger has been long regarded as "The Industry Standard"; for good reason, it is constructed from high-strength aluminum! The 1 1/2 inch diameter tubing used for the mast has a 1/8th inch wall thickness! You won't find a sturdier mast on the market.
  • The two 8 inch reels feature adjustable disc clutches and come wound with 150 feet of highly visible, 135 pound test tow line per reel. The tow lines have been fitted with swivel clips, ready to attach to your planers.
  • The 72 inch, 2 piece planer mast comes complete with a heavy-duty cast aluminum mounting base and two pulleys on swivels.
  • Fishing with Big Jon's planer riggers allows you to spread your lure presentation over a wide area (up to 150 feet from each side of your boat). That gives you a real advantage when fishing "Boat Shy" game fish.
  • This Big Jon planer mast has been given a bright anodized finish that will resist corrosion and add to the beauty of your boat. When you choose Big Jon products, your boat will shine.

Army Corps of Engineers Protects River Wildlife

A complex series of locks and dams up and down the Ohio River enable interstate commerce, travel and recreation by maintaining a usable pathway for watercraft, but come with the inevitable byproducts of disrupting the river’s natural systems. To combat this, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers uses a complex monitoring and response technology designed to minimize the negative impacts of dredging on the river ecosystem. Steven Foster, a limnologist with the Corps Water Quality Team, works at the Robert C. Byrd Lock and Dam in Gallipolis Ferry, West Virginia. He said one key area he focuses on is the welfare of mussels in the river. River dredging can smother mussel beds, so Foster and the team of engineers monitor the beds to ensure their safety.

Researchers Track Glacial Meltwater On Its Surprising Journey

While the scientific community has formed its consensus on how ice sheets are shrinking in and around Greenland, some researchers are tracking what happens to the meltwater as it drains into the ocean each summer. Their study, published in Nature Geoscience by an interdisciplinary team of biologists, oceanographers and hydrologists, used computer models to simulate the meltwater to see where currents take it and what effect it could have on the ocean. Renato Castelao, one of the researchers and an associate professor of marine science for the University of Georgia, said one of the biggest discoveries of the study was the surprising final destinations of the ice sheets as they melt into the ocean each summer.

Ice Fishing With A SondeCAM Underwater Fishing Camera

Thinking of hitting the ice with a SondeCAM underwater fishing camera? Due to its rugged design, you won't have to worry about it handling the harsh elements. However there are a few simple tricks to get the most out of a FishSens SondeCAM while ice fishing. You won't have to do anything to modify the SondeCAM itself, but you are going to have to bring a few extra things. Most importantly we are going to need a power source. Unless you are hauling your gear with a truck, you'll want something more portable than the battery you used in the boat. Pick up an inexpensive and maintenance-free 12-volt, 9-amp battery. It is going to provide plenty of power, but will be much lighter and take up less space.
