Coldwater Lake report
We received the below report from Denny Whalen who fished Coldwater Lake in western Washington state yesterday:
"Donn: Hi. Went up to Coldwater Lake today. Your lures worked awesome! Had 24 on and had 20 to the boat that I released. The best one was the 2.8 perch color, next was the 2.4 in orange one, next was the 2.4 solid hot pink one that you sent to our daughter, Lisa, next was the 1.8 pink/white tail. I was usually out 5 colors of leaded line with 50 feet of mono attached to it. I was going at least 2 to 2.5 mph. Anyways, thanks for sending the lures to our daughter. Super Father’s Day present."
Denny: Thank you! We appreciate your taking the time to give our lures a test!! --Donn
Fished the Potholes Reservoir in Washington state for trout on Saturday. Came away with three very solid fish: the biggest measured 21", the next 19", and the third 17".
These fish are strong and the two larger hit like a freight train. Lots of fun!
Here's a link to a quick video.
Lake Washington: 1.8" OG1
Randy Rauscher has fished Lake Washington twice this past week for the cutts and kokanees. See his report here.
We tested a new 2.8" OG1 model on the Potholes Reservoir last week and it fished well for the rainbows. We're offering it with either a single 2/0 Matzuo hook or a size 4 Mustad treble.
I'll try to keep the blog updated every so often: posting pictures submitted by customers, notes about recent tests, etc.
