When I visited Korea, literally everyone uses down shot rig for fluke.
They don't use bait at all and catch tons of fluke with the rigs.
I am very impressed and I want to introduce the rig for fulke in the US.

Here are sequences of pictures how to make the down shot rig.
Colored braid instead of mono to see better.
You can use your favorite teaser. They use plain sinker, but I feel silver ball or any buctail could be better as it actually can attract fluke.

Simple Palomar knot is used to make the rig.

Kil, I've tried drop shotting for fluke and it is very effective. However, the line twist drives me crazy...

 

I think VMC Spinshot hook is a great concept, if only they make it with a larger hook...they only come in sizes up to 1/0.

We usually drift for fluking to cover more ground.
