one key to fishing chum I have learned like knucklebuster said troll very slow.

pink/blue and pink/black are the key, ive never caught one on plain pink although they should work i guess...
also try throwin a spin n glo in front (small and metallic blue or purple)
try a 36 inch leader, sometimes that really works a lot better for no particular reason
try the blue silver, and purple silver flashers, as well as chum special (black trim scale foil with a purple/blue stripe- slays em)
try a purple/black apex ina small size on 36 inch leader.
make sure to stack 4 lines and you can even throw dummy flashers off the cannon balls too(no hooks attatched!!!)
try and find areas with lots of current or your probly wasting your time.

I agree with EE but the most important part troll dead slow against the tide. I only use a 26 inch to 30 inch leader max. and use black hooks only. I troll at .9 to 1.1 mph. If you cant find pink and blue or pink and black squirts take a magic marker and colour half a pink one black or dark blue. Another note is I do not run my lines back far only about 7 to 10 feet from the down rigger clip.
Just a thought Good Luck

Four rods is key when chum fishing the mor flash down there the better, it's just like sockeye fishing.
