Was able to get up to Sekiu last week and chase the coho with the OG2. We ended up releasing a number of wild fish (two were toads), and, we also released a couple of really nice kings. But, that said, we were able to bring back a couple of clipped coho for the grill.
The most productive lure was the 5" fluoro-green/chartreuse. We trolled it solo--no flasher. And, we trolled it fast (about 60 degrees of angle in the downrigger cable). Our most productive depth was in the 30- to 35-foot range.
A couple of photos below:
Getting several new OG2 colors/sizes ready for tests out of Sekiu next week. They include chartreuse/green-splatter-back, white-black-scales with purple stripe, fluoro-pink/white, fluoro-orange/white, etc.
We'll see how the coho respond!
Ken Loewen, who operates Reel Action Tours, in British Columbia ordered six OG2s from us last winter.
He just emailed the below report and photo:
"Awesome morning more then 40 coho between 12-17and all caught on your gear. Many pictures to follow..."
Took my nephew and brother out yesterday to fish the pinks near Point No Point in Puget Sound.
Experimented with a new configuration: Attaching an 11" flasher to the downrigger ball and then trolling an OG2 with six feet of line clipped-in directly above the flasher. We were trolling shallow with 24 feet on the cable in 100 feet of water.
Took the salmon in the picture and missed a second one with the net at the boat. (The 2nd fish hit the 2.8" OG2 in fluoro-orange/fluoro-green.)
In addition, we lost what we think was a decent king. It spat the hook after three long, deep runs.
I'll try to keep the blog updated every so often: posting pictures submitted by customers, notes about recent tests, etc.
