Ran a quick test of the three new freshwater colors that appear below in the blog.
Initially, I fished the green/black-scale with fluorescent orange tail for apx. 45 minutes. Nothing touched it.
Since I have a two-rod permit, I decided to fish the new purple/black-scale with orange tail against the red-oxide/fluorescent orange. (The red-oxide has been a go-to color, and lure, for Rock Lake.)
What happened next was crazy: The purple/orange out-fished the red-oxide by a factor of four to one. In about an hour and a half, I was done. Limit on the stringer. Over.
Here's a short video: https://youtu.be/A_5gmKU0ttw
Those steelhead plants in Rock Lake are looking really good. (And, they're even better on the smoker...)
I'll try to keep the blog updated every so often: posting pictures submitted by customers, notes about recent tests, etc.
