Mark Damron, a guide in California, requested a couple of new colors for the 1.8" OG1 (blue/pink and gold/white). We painted up two batches and he put them to work in his local waters. Below is his report and a photo of the results:
Several weeks ago I asked Donn at Old Goat Lures to paint me some custom 1.8 OG' s in pink/blue and gold. Donn came through and I put the new colors too work on Lake Pardee, Ca. The results were GREAT! The pink/blue never came off the rod. 2 Limits of kokanee in under 2 hours, that's 20 for myself and partner and a bonus rainbow. Paired with a Rocky Mountain Tackle Bahama Mama 4.5 dodger @ 35-58 ft., 1.3-1.7 mph, kokanee feast scented corn, this combination was lights out. Back this Sat. with 4 new kokanee anglers, will be definitely putting my OG's to work again, Thanks Donn, be ready for another order from me soon. Regards, Mark Damron, Cool California
Mark: Absolutely appreciate your putting our gear to work and reporting the results! Thank you!
Due to the hard work of our master rigger, Jed W., we have 1.8" and 2.13" OG1s back in stock for the kokanee fishermen!
Order yours now through our online store.
Dave Y. has been putting the OG1s to work in eastern Washington: on Big Meadow lake and Blue Lake. Below are two photos from each respective trip.
Dave: Absolutely appreciate your putting our gear to work and taking the time to report the results!
Received the following report and photo from Tim M. who is fishing the OG1s on the west side of Washington state for the rainbows:
"...We love the Old Goats and have caught hundreds of fish on them!"
Tim: Thanks for the report and the photo! Appreciate both! (The big bow in the photo was taken with the 2.44" fluoro-orange OG1.)
A fishing guide in California, Mark D., requested two new colors in the 1.8" OG1 for his arsenal. We decided to paint up a batch of each. And, thanks to the work of our rigger, Jed W., we're making them available to everyone through the online store.
The first is a gold with white underside. The second is a fluoro-blue/fluoro-pink with white underside. These are rigged with 12 lb leader and tandem, size-4 hooks.
If you fish kokanee or trout, you'll want a few of each color in your boat!
We've created a new 5" OG2 with a rattle-tail. This prototype has been shipped to nine fishermen from Alaska to SW Washington state.
We're looking forward to gathering some data and finding out how it does for the salmon and Lake Trout.
The fluoro-green/fluoro-orange color was a top producer in the OG2 for salmon last summer. So, we decided to apply that color to the OG1 for the kokanee and trout fishermen. (We tested this lure in Rock Lake last February and it was very effective for the 'bows.)
Our master rigger, Jed W., went to work and rigged up a bunch of these new OG1s with tandem size 4 hooks. And, you get can get yours now via our online store!
Received the following pics and a quick report from a friend and customer who indicated they were "4 for 4" fishing the kokanee in Idaho last weekend.
They were trolling a small fluoro-orange OG1 rigged with tandem hooks.
The westside R&D team went to work in Kitsap Lake today: trolling for the rainbows with a 2.44" Orange-Perch OG1.
Attaching several pics of the results (below):
Received the below report and photo from Dave H. who is fishing the winter kings out of Homer, Alaska:
"The blue-green/black-scales OG2 and the orange/green has also produced. In fact, they're out-fishing bait. I shipped up 15 trays of sardines and haven't caught 1 on bait yet."
Dave: Appreciate the report and your putting the OG2s 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.
