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.

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
