Been fishing Lake O a bit more recently and we’ve been struggling to catch kings on flasher/fly set ups. Anyone willing to give some tips on the concept?

I run my flies 24 inches behind my flasher, my speed most of the time is 2.5-2.8 on my FH. Off riggers I run 10 ft off the ball in the morning . Then when sun comes up , I will run them 20-25 off the ball . I run them off dipseys with 9-10 ft lead.

That about sums it up pretty well... I like glow colors early in the morning and then change up to more "flashy" colors as the day goes on. FF setups work well on longer copper lines as well.

Are you out early or late in the morning? Colors that fire early don’t always fire when the sun comes up. I ran darks in the morning and chromes/whites when the sun came up last week with a lot of success. Actually black/green dot fires best in the early morning until it got light.

This year class of three year olds has shown a predilection for choosing spoons.  Don't fight it, give them what they want.

What model and size flashers are you using? The last time I was out, my 10” spin doctors were crushing fish, but the 8” with the same rig and fly action (adjust the leader lengths), didn’t take a hit.

Flasher Flies always do great on my boat, and outfish my spoons hands down. I’ve also had a lot more experience with flasher flies versus spoons.

White/Mtn Dew Spindoctors anytime. Darker greens/blues in low light and brighter colors during high sun is usually a good rule of thumb, but any color combo could be hot at any time.

Length between my Diver and spin doctor is 10-13’, spin doctor to fly is 24”-36”. I will add two teasers between the spin doctor and fly as well. Behind a downrigger ball, I will run them 15’-30’ back. Every distance will catch fish, so find the distance you have confidence.

As much as flasher/spin doctor color matters on many days, so does the fly color. You can never go wrong with olive/white, but chartreuse/white, light blue/white, and dark green/dark blue take the majority of my fish.
