Hi Ken

Can you tell me the name's of your new gear below or do you just go by the color in each?


I had luck at the lake today with them and the radio reported fish being put in the boat with them.

Good job Thanks & I will be looking for your report and others from the lake today.

Don't think you have to have a dodger with the spoons they work great by them self alone especially at faster speeds.

Itís exciting for me when I have something new. I had a bunch of kens older spoons already to fish today but just could not help myself from using the new ones.

Dodgers are great attractors and the Blue Prism & Crush Glow are my favorite.

I ran the large model today which works unbelievable with shad & larger bait fish, but just did not work out for me using spoons today.*

Others were connecting with the fish on the smaller version.

The Kings sure taste good.

Fished with my fishing buddy Trouble today, at Folsom. *Tried our new shad pattern flutter spoon. (Which is the top one on the picture) *this produced 2 nice fish today on our boat. *Also the new Glow Shad (which is the bottom one on the picture) produced one nice king today. *We also caught fish on our watermelon wormharness, our chartruese hoochie. *We trailed all of these behind our small crush glow and blue prism dodger. *Although the shad fluttersoons can be trolled by themselves as Willbilly did today, we found they worked better behind a dodger. *Also tested Pro Cures Bad Azz Bait dye in Lemon Lime color. *I treated the shad overnight with dye and Krill oil. *These treated shad trailed behind the Blue Prism dodger produced 3 solid takedowns, with one fish to the boat.
Lost the biggest fish of the day, caught it on the chartruese hoochie.
Duramax Dan was on the water today fishing with some of our tackle. *He put 6 fish in the boat trolling our watermelon dodger and our chartruese hoochie. *
Most fish caught between 45-65 ft. of water, speed 1.6mph. *Pro Cure bait scents used was shad, carpspit and krill.
Need more info? *pm me.

Capt Ken your dodgers Rock!! I used four different dodgers with chartruese hoochies in tow and all four had fish on.The silver and blue prism dodger has been my go to so far this year with 6 fish in the box in the last two trips then the rainbow with the crush glow comes in second with 2 as well as the blue and red with crush glow.Seems if you run them two and one half dodger lengths for the hoochie it gives the right action to bring lots of takedowns.Thanks again Ken for your great hand made lures you produce they keep my in plenty of fish.

Fished Folsom again today with DuramaxDan and his family. *Doing some more R&D on our new shad lures. *The bite was a little slow to start, but we managed to put 4 nice kings in the boat, with one over 20 inches. *The glow shad pattern flutter spoon, trolled by itself today in 50ft. of water worked great. *Our watermelon dodger with the pro cure dyed green shad worked awesome today. *It was a great pleasure fishing with Dan and his family.

Capt Ken the pleasure was all mine today having you aboard with the family.Thanks for the rolling shad lesson it will pay off many times down the road.Those spoons are just starting I am sure they will work well at many other places this spring and summer.I hope you had as nice as day as we did and hope to do it again.
