How do I keep by spoons from surfacing?

(I know rookie question) I was trying to run them off a board and flat line out the back. Is there a weight setup that works better or worse to use to try and keep them from surfacing- I wanted them closer to the top of the water column but maybe I want them lower… any recommendations?

No weight required with a heavier casting/jigging spoon. A few of us still use Cleos or Crocodile spoons for trolling on the big pond. Lots of good colors and as stealthy as it gets. One tip when rainbow trolling at higher speeds is using larger ball bearing swivels to hook up to your lightweight spoons. I've also heard 100% flourocarbon is heavier than water. If you use mono try flouro instead.

Thanks for the help. Been traveling too much to try these till this week. I run about 150 ish feet out to the spoon from the board, speed 1.5-2.5 depending on day. I tried the inline weights, they worked. still will be tring the lead core. Thanks you.
