Yes you should. If you have the chance to run three lines...

1 off the side of the boat, 1 in the prop wash and 1 on a planer board way out until you get a pattern.

It seems to be a popular technique on Winnie too. I may even try it on some of our smaller trout lakes this summer. Small planer boards and Rapalas,so you don't spook the fish by running over them.

50-50 with a 1/2 oz snap weight on the board?

50-50 works well.

I run a dual board system on a mast. I am normaly running my boards for pike, I run Raps on heavy releases behind the dual board, the inliners or single boards work great for walleye but pike know how to use the board to get free.

When I do run for walleye on Red I will often creep along with single boards dragging a no snag in front of a spinner wind permitting, it can get a bit tricky dailing the board in doing this but it produces well on those clear calm days.
