Had a chance to head to Masons Resort in Sekiu, Washington this past week for a couple of days of fishing. The highlight was catching up with a good friend that I'd bow-hunted with for a number of years here in Idaho. It was an amazing trip.
Lots of fish. And, I do mean a lot of fish. But, since we could only keep the clipped coho, we left with a total of 4.
The morning bite was the most predictable. We fished 500 feet of water with 40 to 90 feet on the cable. (We started shallow as the sun was rising and then moved deeper.)
The hot lures were a new 5" glow-green OG2 and our standby--the 3.3" OG2 in blue/black-scales. The glow lure was especially effective in the early morning hour--before the sun had actually risen.
Due to the diligent work of our son and daughter-in-law, we've been able to restock our supply of OG spinners.
The blades on these spinners are created with UV-glow plastic. And, their counter-rotating action creates a unique vibration profile that kokanee and trout can't resist!

We're getting ready to offer salmon fishermen a new Green Glow OG2 in the 3.9" and 5" sizes.
Below is a short video of freshly painted lures from our paint room:
My brother and his son continue to take some really nice coho out of the salt near Valdez, Alaska.
Today's hot lure was the green/orange OG2:
My brother, his son, and friends are fishing out of Valdez, Alaska for the coho. They were fishing OG2s. The most productive colors: white/black-scales, purple/black-scales, and yellow-glow.
He indicates they were trolling the OG2s with 50 feet on the cable, behind a green/reflective 11" flasher.
I'll try to keep the blog updated every so often: posting pictures submitted by customers, notes about recent tests, etc.
