Hot Spot Flashers
Produce Ocean Kings!
ot Spot Flashers perform very
well when it comes to hooking

key decisions a
to make are, first
the line length
between the down-
rigger release and
the flasher. Second,
the tail length between the flasher and the
hoochie or bait. Third, the weight of the
leader to use. And fourth, which bait, lure
or hoochie to use behind the flasher.
A typical Chinook setup is 18 feet of line
between the downrigger ball and an 11”
Hot Spot flasher. The lure is run 42 inches
behind the blade on 30 lb. fluorocarbon.
These measurements are often utilized by
commercial salmon trollers.
When fishing shallow water, say water
less then 40 feet deep, it is often wise
to drop the flasher back to 30 to 70 feet
behind the downrigger weight.

most common speed for kings is 2.3 to
