Top Dodgers and Flashers for Lake Trout

Trolling for lake trout on the eastern basin is one of the most exciting experiences that Lake Erie has to offer. The sheer power and beauty of these prehistoric looking creatures is an extraordinary experience that leaves you wanting more. It's a short season for targeting Lakers, which usually starts in late April through mid to late May. The method for catching lake trout on Lake Erie is trolling. The best tactic I’ve found is running dodgers and flashers with spoons and spin ‘n’ glos because they act as an attractor, drawing fish to your baits. Here are some of the most productive dodgers and flashers I've found:

Silver Horde Gold Star Dodgers

Gold Star Dodgers have been around for a long time and their quality is second to none. They have good quality stainless steel swivels and welded rings. They are available in two sizes - six and eight inch. They have some great colors to choose from. FishUSA also has some really nice custom color options to chose from as well.

Luhr Jensen Dodgers

Yakima Big Al’s Fish Flash

Yakima Big Al’s Fish Flash
Big Al's Fish Flash is considered a no drag flash because it has almost no resistance in the water. It is considered an inline spinning flasher. I use these primarily with downriggers and they are extremely easy to utilize. These flashers are offered in six and eight inch models with several color options.
