Last year at Lake Wenatchee I snapped 2 fish flashes together and then clipped them onto my downrigger ball.

I used a VERY short set back… between 7-10 feet before I clipped in my offering.

I wonder if this helped me? I did proceed to catch my limit, but so did most everyone else that area on that morning….

Does anyone do this for added attraction when fishing for sockeye or other salmon species?

I like to use the Mack's flashlights on my DR balls. Sockeye like to school is what I always thought, same as kokanee. If you really want to see fish for a few hours or half your limit with them and take them off and fish the limits without it. I think the help but YMMV.

During a hot kokanee bite a few years ago, I ran one ball with a large lake troll and one without. Both with 10 ft setbacks. The flash outproduced the naked ball 4-1. Ive been running some kind of attractor on the ball (when fishing deeper than 30ft) ever since.

I have used them in front of my flash as well...

They have a string of fish-flashes already strung together for sale at sport co next to all the downrigger stuff.

Well, it's not a 'lake' subject, it's a 'fishing hardware' subject, so I moved it here as I thought this was a better place for it. [biggrin]

Altho I have no idea how 'hardware how-to's' and 'Swap Event' go together. [laugh]
