Well not really a spy photo but it could be. I got two picís however, one was blurrier, but had better color detail, but I did not post it. *

Here is a new to the test stage dodger that I may be able to get into the water for the first time in the morning @ UVR


Lucky Me!

This is a take off on one of my favorites the Crushed Glo & the rainbow/watermelon pattern.

This dodger *has been in the works for quite a while getting the manufacturing perfected too make the Capt. happy.

Ken is a stickler for quality control and this dodgerís design took some special steps and material to get it to the water test stage. (Bonding & Etching to make it as good as possible)

This is an overlay *on one of my favorites the Crushed Glo

I do not know if or when it will go into production but maybe this post will get the wheel moving a little faster, and some more info posted here from the Capt.

Put the final finishing touches on the new dodger. *This is our 5" nickel dodger, with custom painted crushed glow tape. (watermelon pattern) *Then lacquer coated. *This is an awesome glowing watermelon pattern. *
We tested this dodger over the last 3 days at UVR. *They performed extremely well. *Although we have been fishing these dodgers in only 10-20 ft. of water right now, they are going to perform even better in deeper water, with the glow. *These dodgers are only going to be available at this time as a special order item.
2nd best dodger at UVR this weekend was our 5 " nickel/Blue prism dodger.
Pink Glow and Pink Mini Skirts were the best lures. *tipped with Pro cure dyed pink corn, scented with anise and garlic oil. *Note: *We have been testing the new Bad Azz UV corn dye in magenta, and it has also been performing well. *It is more of a puplish pink color, and has a uv flash.
These dodger *and Mini Skirt combinations have been producing large numbers of fish for us so far.
It was great having Willbilly on the boat to help test the new dodgers. *Thanks for all the help with pictures. *I will make sure you get some of the first out of the paint booth.
Duramax Dan, good to see you reading these posts. *Keep up the good work at Oroville!!
We are now booking UVR kokanee and mack trips.
The bite should improve with more warm weather ahead.

Ken it looks like the testing is working well with the nice kokes you guys have been getting at UVR.Keep the good work up I hope to do a bit of fishing at the big O or UVR this week if work lets me do so.

Well, They are ready!! These watermelon dodgers worked so well over the last weekend on the kokes, we decided that I needed to get busy and get some of these made up. The first batch is done and ready to go! We have decided to produce them in both patterns, pink on the outside, green inside, and then the traditional watermelon, green outside, pink inside. Both worked well. These are a must have to along with the new Mini Skirts!!
PM me for more information.

You can always ck with Ken & find out availability.

It was surprising to me for Ken to bring a new product to the market so quickly.

Every batch is custom made and rarely you may *need to get on a short list.

Sometimes with a new product Ken is just bringing out of the test stage *a short lag happens while he stocks up on material and manufacturing supplies to keep up with the demand.

Visit his site for info Mrs. Capt Ken keeps it very up to date.
