When I was a kid, my dad and uncle used to use a fishing line with a shaped wooden paddle (i guess that's what I'd call it anyway) that would sink when being towed and once it had a certain amount of fish on would float to the surface...does anyone know what the shape of the paddle should be...?

Cheers

The paddle is a used to bring the line down to a specific depth and they're commercially available at any big fishing equipment store.

That's what they're called... I couldn't remember what they were called...
Are you talking about a planer board? This pic from the Cabela's Web site.
