Hot spot is the leading manufacturer of artificial trolling lures on the West Coast of North America. Our trolling lures, the Apex lure and flashers, are known by sports and commercial fishermen alike for their amazing fish catching results. We thank you for your interest in our products, and hope that this site will provide you with the information you are seeking. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact us.

As a manufacturer, we do not sell our products directly but you can find them online at Berry’s Bait and The Fishin’ Hole, and at major retailers such as Walmart.

Our Flashers and Apex lures are known by many names, including: Apex lures, Apex, Flashers, and even Apex Flashers! The important thing to look for is the Hot Spot logo and the name. This is also the official website for all products. Our lures are so effective that several copycat lures have come to our attention. Unfortunately, these lures are cheap imitations attempting to capitalize on the Hot Spot name and Apex lure product lines — even using names that sound similar to our products. They claim to be improvements on the Flasher and the Apex lures. However, as fishermen will tell you, this is an impossible claim as theFlasher and Apex lures are perfect lures — perfected over forty years of continuous development and fishing success. If you think you have one of our products, but want to be sure, please contact us.
