The folks at Northwest Fishing Reports have been adding new features and functionality to their site. Among these features are detailed reports for a given sponsor.

When we fished Sekiu last Thursday and Friday, I had the privilege of bringing a good friend Jed and his wife Sophie. (Jed has tackled rigging for us this past summer. His work here allowed me to focus on repairing 3D printers, painting lures, and managing inventory/website/etc.)
Jed told me that his wife would be bringing a camera and creating a short video. She did. And, what she created is hands-down the best video anyone has pulled together for the business. Couldn't be more thankful for these two and the work they've done to help move us forward!
And, the video--here's a link.

The 5" OG2 in fluoro-green/chartreuse took us by surprise 3 weeks ago when we ran a quick test out of Sekiu, Washington.
We published the results. But, wanted to be sure that this first outing wasn't a fluke. So, last week, we made the 10 hour drive to Sekiu again. Brought more of the 5" OG2s and re-ran our tests. No flasher, no downrigger, just a solo lure fished fast. (The angle of the downrigger cable was well over 45 degrees--closer to 60.)
Last week's trip solidified our conclusion: That lure, and that color, are very effective for the coho. (In addition, it hooked a number of Blackmouth salmon that we released.)
The following video shows the results of this 2nd outing:
We just added a link in the online store to our new 5" OG2 in fluoro-green and chartreuse. This is the color that had fished exceptionally well out of Sekiu two weeks ago.
We found that fishing this lure solo (without a flasher) was very effective for the Coho. Especially when trolled fast!
Made a whirlwind trip from Moscow, Idaho to Port Orchard and fished the Puget Sound last Saturday morning. Below is a quick video of the trip. (The coho was taken on a 2.8" OG2 in fluoro-white with black-scales.
Was able to fish the OG2s for Coho out of Sekiu last week. On Wednesday, decided to try fishing a new green/chartreuse 5" OG2 without a flasher. Shortly after attaching it to the rod and setting the downrigger cable, we had a strong takedown and this continued for the duration.
In the process of catching our two limits, we managed to catch/release at least eleven wild fish. This new lure surprised us!
Here's a short video clip:
I'll try to keep the blog updated every so often: posting pictures submitted by customers, notes about recent tests, etc.
