Chasing Coho with the OG2!
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:
New OG2 Colors!
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..."
Green OG2 for the Pink Salmon!
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.
