    Default Looking for specific type of flasher for trolling

    I bought two a few years ago at the Sportsmans show. It was multiple..maybe 6 little plastic fish approz 4-5in long, hooked to a cable and used for trolling. They worked great!..gone now and want more.

    Trying to find the company that makes them. If anyone knows who has them..please PM me.

    Thanks

    I know what you're talking about- more of a daisy chain arrangement than an umbrella, but with spinning flashers rather than squids and such like we use in warm blue water. I had a couple, but ended up breaking them down for the individual flashers. Source escapes me a the moment, but I'll post a follow-up if I think of it.

    Im pretty sure you are looking for the daisy chains sold by Bechhold and sons. Might want to look at their flashers as well, they kick as.

    Page 4 is probably what you're looking for.

    I got a string of three for a Christmas present. How well did they work for you?

    AK Char...that sure looks like them..but there were more on the cable than that..Guess i could add more. They ROCK!! for trolling for Silvers and Kings. I did some testing out of seward on about a dozen different types of systems. I continually caught more fish off of these. Stats showed color was not a big deal, vibration, flash I think played a larger part.

    I also used cut herring, thin sliced on spoon and those bait plugs..The bait plugs you open and put a small slice in there..those worked great behind the rig.

    Also the larger spoons..5in and 6in crocodiles worked great with a small slice of herring wrapped around the treble.

    Thanks for all the links. I think I am going to try the umbrella rig as well this year and see how that works.

    Still looking for the longer version..but know this will work.

    no picture but this is it. You can add this to your downrigger ball and attach a bait plug or spoon behind it. Allows you to fight the fish instead of the flasher etc as extra drag etc.

    Thanks guys..we are in business..

    I was at B&J's today and they had what you are looking for. They are hanging with the rest of the flashers on the back wall.

    Thanks..been talking to Jerry almost daily over the last week...Seems he has everything i needed and put me a box to goodies together and dropped it in the mail. Looking forward to using some new lures he has recommended.

    Seems his flashers have some good reviews...we will see.

    Thanks again for all help...got a few different colors on the downrigger daisy chains.

    Looking forward to winning the Silver Salmon Derby in August with this stuff...lol

    Fishcatcher.com has a booth at the sportsman's show. He's on the main floor of the Sullivan arena.
    He has all of his goods and is giving away some new products for a tryout.
