I am a big fan of the small "fish flash", especially in the ocean. I do wonder if a 000 Dodger would work just as well trolling cut plug herring for springers? I would like to put something in front of their face on Friday that looks a little different from the norm

We fished the Multnomah Channel last Sunday and spotted a lady with a fish on. As we watched the battle unfold, we noticed that she had a very large spin-n-glo 2 feet in front of where the herring (now Springer) had been.

I had picked up a couple of 00 spin-n-glos at Bob's just for fun. One of them with mylar wings. Barry put that on two feet above his herring and not long after got hit by a freight train. Never even slowed him down.

So if your looking for something a little different ...

the fish flash has never worked for me but the 000 has caught my biggest springer 27lb and several more smaller ones.i used to use a downrigger with that but a sinker should work also.hope that helped and good luck.NS

Have seen the spin-glo technique many times but a # 2 was the size used...It does work with GREAT success. Just place a barrel swlvel above the herring 12 to 24 inches and place the spin-glo above it. Don't forget to add a couple beads under the spin-glo so it can spin. Lime green, or Red head chrome work well.
