The flatfish is my "go to" lure. It used to come with more instructions. One is to reel the lure in slowly; the slower the better.

I like to use these in the smaller sizes for trout and panfish and medium sizes for bass. I cast them with light tackle and retrieve them very slowly. They work great when a slow presentation is required and they catch fish.

We used thes lures in Arizona fishing for Trout and they were just amazing. The two we use mostly were the Glow Black Tiger and Glitter Watermelon. But over the last 15 years we have caught Trout on all of them--the action of the lure is just tremendous.

Flatfish for SM Bass and Panfish
The F series works great in shallow water. Using the F-4 and F-5 flatfish for bass and panfish allows more time in the target area due to their great action with a slow retrive. I had good luck right out of the box and expect my catch rate to improve as I gain more experience.

As far as the Flatfish is concerned I use yellow w/ black spots. A similar lure by Heddon is orange w/ black spots and white w/ red head. The pike in upstate N.Y.seem to love this. Can't be any help w/ Walleye though.
A great lure but if you are casting off of a high pier the flatfish will want to come out of tye water unless you use weight. A 3 1/2" floating Rapala will cast further because it's a little more aerodynamic.
There isn't a complete ansure w/ this one. Your equipment especialy your line has allot to do w/ it. I want to mention a line but the guide lines might not let me. You need a proper pole and real it would seem to me 7 foot long medium heavy. If looking for strenth and distance I would go for a super line 12-14 Lb. test w/ a 8 Lb. test diameter. This would give you your distance and also the strenth of a good line if you get a big one on.
I guess it would depend on whether you are facing into the wind or not. The lenght and flexibilty of your rod are key. When using an 8' salmon rod with medium action and with a sensitive tip, I managed 20 yard casts with ease. That was all the distant I needed to catch coho and silvers off the jetty onboard Great Lakes Naval Training Base.
the lures are not real heavy but they do fly well. distance depends on so many things such as rod stiffness, line weight and type, wind speed and direction. i would be willing to bet that unless your casting into the wind you should get a good long cast with a 3.25 inch lure
