Walleyes Slow Speed Troll
1.0 to 1.5 mph
This is right in the wheelhouse of inlines. Larger-full
sized dual planer boards will not pull out to the side
tight at slow speeds. They lag back, dropping a
lot of slack in the tag line, or line to the tow bigger
boards. Inlines were made to go
slow with towing crawler harnesses in mind with bottom
bouncers. While it's a cumbersome way, you can
argue over how deadly it is on Walleyes.

per board with Fishy Alert Flag. This flag comes
with light and heavy duty spring to dial in to trigger
the Fishy Flag. 2 springs and 3 holes offers a
multitude of settings.
I'm selling is
hybrid board similar to the Offshore, but with a Church
board styled release mechanism. Compare to 60 bucks and
over for the Church and Offshore boards with the flag
option. This is an excellent constructed board
with a reinforced arm. This stronger right angle
gusseted arm is the feature all the other boards
These boards are a winner at a reasonable price!

Board tactics are greatly
different that trolling for Walleyes. The desired
Fishy Flag should not be deployed. In this usage
you want the board to trip and not fight the board back
to the boat while it's digging side saddle over the top
of other boards in your spread.
Seen a good sized
Steelhead and Brown Trout explode and knock a board 10'
up in the air when the line goes direct drive to the fish.
Having the flag up just causes more concerns about
tangling. In rough water inlines
jump over waves. They can jump over other board
lines too. Making the Fishy Flag a major
hindrance. Disable this feature when dealing with
Trout and Salmon.
news is the inlines tolerate rough water far better than
their big brother, dual boards. Just remember, when
it's calm seas 80' to 120' leads might be called for.
In rougher stuff I've found 30' leads to take fish.
Inlines adds an erratic surge motion to your lure.
This herky-jerky variable lure action at times will
out-fish the larger dual boards.
