Item Description

MAKO Spearguns Throw Flasher

The MAKO Spearguns Throw Flasher is a proven way to bring in big fish and keep them in as you line up your shot. Used extensively by blue water hunters in South Africa, the throw flasher is a must have for big game hunters everywhere.

Just throw it in any direction and watch it slowly sink. The reflecting light attracts the fish, allowing you to move in for the shot.

The rate of descent is about 8 feet (2.4m) per minute and can be adjusted by cutting an inch or more from the 6” piece of latex tubing if you'd like to increase the descent rate.

Choose between the “double threat”, or the “triple threat” flasher.

Each kit includes 2 or 3 (your choice) of the MAKO Spearguns Flashers, a 6” piece of 20mm latex tubing, 12 inches of MAKO Spearguns South African Orange Reel Line and 12 inches of band tying line to tie your constrictor knot.

NOTE: All edges of the MAKO Spearguns flashers are beveled and rounded smooth so they will not cut you, or your wetsuit or your gear.

Each MAKO Spearguns Flasher measures 8” L x 2.3” W x .137” Thick

    This flasher quirks great for yellowtail in So Cal. I found the best setup is to tie each of the three flashers approximately 6-10” apart and then thread the string through the rubber part. This keeps the three flashers apart as it sinks. Yellows and Bonita can’t resist. Also works well when Dorado when they are around.

    I bought 2 sets of the flasher and they are great! I plaid with them in my pool because its now wahoo season yet and they were definitely flashing and spinning all the way down.

    Flashers Are Great.

    Suggest to include longer tie line, I prefer a setup where I separate each one like 3”.

    Lost them on the first trip out. But they worked amazing on the first fishes.

    The Jury is still out on this

    I'm going to do some tweaking on this throw flasher to give it a fair test. Usually I make my own and they bring in cero mackerel and yellow jacks pretty reliably. Maybe I didn't cut off enough float tube but it wasn't spinning or doing much of anything. I'll report back on this.
