Inline hard body baits
Here are some of the inline hardbody baits. There is a hole down the middle of the bait the entire length of the body. You pass a 20 pound flurocarbon leader down the center. A size 2 octopus hook right behind the tail with beads in front followed by a #4 red treble hook trailer. Put beads at the nose with a clevis/blade and a top cap bead. Put a nightcrawler on the back and slow troll it at 1.4 mph close to the bottom. Perch patterns work great in the fall. The walleyes on Lake Erie like smelt also.
