We'd received two consecutive orders from a customer in California this past month. Since most of our sales are to Washington, Oregon, and Idaho residents, I followed up with the customer out of curiosity and asked how our lures were performing.
Turns out he's a fishing guide: Mark Damron.
In our email exchange, he indicated that his OG1s were out fishing his Apex lures by a factor of 5 to 1. I'm including his email below:

Subject: Re: Old Goat Lures/question
Yes, I put these to work last week at Lake Pardee. They out fished my APEX lures 5 to 1. I'm absolutely looking forward to using Old Goat Lures this coming tournament season. I really think it's going to give me an edge. I love targeting large kokanee on structure, these lures I'm positive will do the job. I'll be running my Water Wolf camera testing the reaction and fish behavior. I'm also going to be testing these lures in a month or 2 at Pyramid Lake Nevada. I know those big Cutthroat trout will tear these up, the bigger greens especially, I'll be ordering AGAIN for those outings and when the out of stock products are available, gold and the purple to be exact. Thanks for the inquiries, I'll definitely keep you informed. Regards, Mark Damron, "Get Bent" Guide Service
Mark: Absolutely appreciate this report and your putting our lures to work! Thank you!!
I'll try to keep the blog updated every so often: posting pictures submitted by customers, notes about recent tests, etc.
