would just like to say thank you for making a quality product in
the Walleye Board, I use these trolling for fall run Chinook
salmon on the confluence of the Snake and Clearwater rivers in
Lewiston, Idaho. We are experiencing a record Chinook return
this year on the Columbia system and we are just now starting to
see them stage at the Idaho border. http://fishandgame.idaho.gov/public/fish/?getPage=111
At any rate, I have attached a photo of a beautiful pre-spawn
Chinook netted last night (10/09/2013) on the starboard Walleye
Board, these boards work really well and hold a straight line
even while going through eddy currents, we normally run small
inline flashers (4-5") with a brad's wiggler and no weight. I
apologize that I don't have a fish holding picture, but I prefer
to unhook and release wild fish in the water when fishing these
We get 90% of our hookups on the boards,
seems like the fish might be boat shy by the time they make it
this far from the ocean, they've seen a lot of presentations!
I do have a night fishing tip for the light
stick accessory if you do not want to drill into your boards, we
run them with rubber bands around the body of the board securing
the sticks to the top section, seems to work well and they still
run straight. Thanks again for a great product!

August 2012: We love hearing from our customers,
especially those who are new to our products. Here is what Scott
M. from Maine wrote to us:
"I was introduced to the Church Tackle Walleye Board by a Maine
guide while on a trip to northern Maine. I recently purchased
the Walleye Boards, the TX-22, and two sets of the TX-6's. I
went from catching 8 to 10 rainbows per trip to having a 31 fish
day on Monday of this week, then an 18 fish day on Wednesday.
Thanks for a awesome product, and you should be getting a lot of
orders from Maine and New Hampshire because the word is
out about your boards. Thanks again, Scott M."

March 2012: Jenna
knows Revelators are the best!
I got back from my trip to the
Bahamas and thought I would send you, what could be the largest
fish taken using the new TX-44
’s! 58lb Grouper
pulling a Mann’s Stretch 30+ at 5.5mph
. Rough sees gave me
fits most of the trip, but we had a calmer day when I was able
to use the boards. They are pulling a diving bait that is
larger than the board
, but they still worked great even at
those higher speeds. Not the greatest picture, but things were
kind of crazy at the time, so I didn’t get the pictures that I
wanted. Going back in April and I will get better photos this
next trip for you. Thanks Again! Jeff Manz
