If you plan on going there on a shorter trip in the near future i just wanted to pass along some helpful info, i went 5/7 on the Katy Perry and it seemed to be the most consistently working color. I hooked only 1 on a glow color. Definitely bring this crazy ass color, no idea why it works but I’m a believer now. Here’s the pics to prove it.

    Thats my favorite color in coltsniper, so I am not surprised it works in flatfall. What size were you using?

    Night time, the window was 8ish to 9ish.
    200 and 250 gram, I got bit off on 100lb using my 250g so heavier leader is a must

    Sure a lot of spit-scratches! Now if only there was a way to rig a flat fall lure so that it would catch in the back of the throat . . .

    Congrats on some nice fish!

    Awesome work there

    Makes me think now that it was bit in the dark than color or glow probably doesn’t matter.

    The fish probably sees shadows or silhouettes, and reacts to the motions and vibrations of the flatfall

    But iam no scientist

    Yeah, I don’t think the glow matters. A couple of weeks ago three of us all fishing at night had equal bites on the non-glow vs glow.
