To me Inside brakes are just that. Picture it as a river flowing. when the river turns there is an Inside and out side brake. The outside brake has a faster current and the inside is the slower still waters. Just like a lake an outside point sticks out into the lake while an inside brake is on the slack water or inside turn. Hope this helps you out..

I have never heard the term inside breaklines... A breakline is where whater changes depth by atleast a few feet abruptly correct? Like picklefarmer already pointed out probably refering to outside turns (points) and inside turns.

Or inside and outside "weedlines." ??? That's a bit more easily explained if that's what you meant.

I haven't really used / heard inside breakline either. Inside "turns" or "bends" are corners that often attract / concentrate fish. Just think opposite of a point.

i guess i would look at an outside turn as simliar to being a

a point and seems more often than hold some fish

i guess rather than inside i refer to then as a inside turn

which is kinda like a pocket and also mot times hold fish

in today world with these chips these spots are very easy to locate

the chip is the best thing since the green box

The Lowrance Green Box was the first depthfinder (a flasher) that was on the market for fisherman and boaters to buy. It started the whole consumer marine electronics industry. I still remember seeing and using them with my uncles and grandpa.

BTW, it was in a green case, hence the name.

Inside and outside "breaklines are just as the previous posters have stated" good luck and don't worry about the vocabulary too much! everybody calls it something different!!
