The Walleye Board from Church Tackle is the best planer board I have ever used. I have been using Church Tackle Walleye Boards since they were first introduced. They have helped me to numerous top ten finishes; the 2005 GNWC Team of the Year Award, 2005 GNWC Hubbard Lake Champion, and the 2007 Michigan Walleye Tour Team of the Year. We ran walleye boards all season long on Saginaw Bay, Houghton Lake, Hubbard Lake, and Burt/Mullett Lakes. I never leave the dock without my Walleye Boards or TX-12 Mini Planer Boards.
I run them right out of the package and they are the best inline planer board trolling system on the market. The Walleye Board tracks perfectly in the water whether in flat calm conditions or raging seas. The Walleye Board also features a unique weight to adjust the trim of the board. Located on the bottom of the board is a weight that can be adjusted along the length of the board. In rough water slide the weight towards the back of the board to slightly lift the front so it can easily glide up and down the large waves. You can also adjust the trim specifically to the weight of the lure or pull of the bait you are using. When using heavy weights or hard pulling big lipped crankbaits slid the weight towards the front of the board to compensate for the extra weight or pull on the back of the of the board.
Church Tackle Walleye Boards and TX-12 Mini Planer Boards work at all speeds as well, this is of utmost importance to me as often times walleyes will be in negative moods and you can only get them to bite at the slowest of speeds. I will troll at .75 mph to entice walleyes into biting; the Church Tackle Walleye Boards perform flawlessly at slow speeds, they stay upright and out to the sides; they will not flop over or lag behind the boat. The perfect balance of The Walleye Board makes it very easy to detect bites; the most of subtle of strikes is telegraphed to the board so you will not miss fish that other planer boards would.
The adjustable flex clip handles all types of fishing lines from monofilament to braids and super lines. The line will not slide through the clip that is made of material that NASA uses in the space program. The rear spring loaded pin connects the board to the line and ensure smooth board removal when bringing a fish in. I have found that a rear clip often leads to a very difficult board removal process and results in slack line, or pulling on the line too hard ending in lost fish.
