can some one tell me how to make a good flasher spread for attracting fish. I was thinking of somthing with a float on the surface, a line going down with a weight on the bottom of the line. i don't know if i should use spread bars or somthing (like the ones ppl use for trolling teasers) and what i should use as the actual flashers. im also worried that a fish i shoot may tangle itself in the flashers or tangle up my reel line.
Do a search on "flasher" you will be surprised to see what come up or should that be "flashing":D
This is one I made a bit back, works OK but yes you need to watch that the fish dont get tangled up :(
The bags are for stones for an anchor weight, but since I took that pic Ive tied another bag about 1 metre up to put crushed crabs in :)
Sorry about the shoes :eek: I cut peoples heads off when I take pics of people too ;)
