Because most short-billed minnow plugs swim no deeper than 6 feet, you must attach a 1/2- to 3-ounce snap weight to the line in front of the lure to reach deeper walleyes. Use a simple, effective setup called the 50/50 program. Start by letting the lure out 50 feet behind a moving boat. Attach a snap weight to the line, let out another 50 feet, then attach the board to the line and place it in the water. Keep in mind, however, that big females may suspend anywhere from just above the bottom to within 5 feet of the surface, so be sure to run baits at different depths.
