The fluoro-pink/silver OG spinner has been our most popular color with the kokanee and trout fishermen. So, we decided to add a similar color: fluoro-red/silver.
The following video captures a short 36-second sequence of this new color running in our test tank:
Fished last Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday morning for the coho salmon out of Masons Resort in Sekiu, Washington. We spent Tuesday experimenting with different OG2 colors and sizes. The top producer turned out to be the 2.8" OG2 in fluoro-green/chartreuse. The runner-up was the 2.8" OG2 in fluoro-green/orange.
On Wednesday morning, we put two fluoro-green/chartreuse OG2s out--one on each downrigger. Fishing them with the leader length out of the box behind a 10" Big Al's fish flash. One attractor was green/chrome, the other chartreuse chrome. We fished one at 30 feet on the cable. And, we fished the other at 100 feet on the cable. We were fishing in water depths of 400 to 600 feet. Before noon that morning, we had our limits of 2 hatchery coho apiece. (And, during that time, we'd released a number of other unclipped fish.)
Below is a a short video with highlights from the trip:
This video covers several days of fishing out of Sekiu--primarily for the King salmon. We took two nice hatchery fish: a 30lb king and a 15lb king. We released a number of wild fish; and, we released several smaller hatchery kings.
The most effective lures were the 2.8" fluoro-green/fluoro-orange OG2 and a new fluoro-white with purple and black scales. (Look for this new color in our online store by the end of this week.)
We fished these OG2s behind a 10" Big Al's Fish Flash. And, we fished them using the leader-length out of the box. In terms of trolling speed, we tried to maintain a 45 degree angle in the downrigger cable.
Special shout out to Jed W. for the work he's done to create this video! (Not to mention the time he spends rigging lures for us!)
I'll try to keep the blog updated every so often: posting pictures submitted by customers, notes about recent tests, etc.
