Thinking of doing a fly-in fish trip to canada this yr. Curious does anyone know or still uses flatfish to troll with. I used them alot 30-40 yrs ao. I know they can be a pain but I have a feeling the fish don't see them that often anymore.

Where are you flying into? What species are you fishing for? Flatfish are still an excellent lure and can catch many different species.

Heck yeah, I still use flatfish casting and trolling. Mostly U20 size are my favorites, but I also have a couple other sizes. The trick is to go slow enough to give them their wiggle without spinning. If I want to go a bit faster, I switch over to my array of Heddon Tadpolly's which have a tighter wiggle. Great lures..........both of 'em.:)

When the Helin family still owned them, Flatfish were made in Detroit, on Gratiot ave. Used to be a standard everywhere.
