Mid-size SYSTEM 2 Dodgers are designed for use in waters in mid-season when cooler water is in 25-70+ feet of the water column. At these depths Kokanee tend to be selective but are becoming more reactive, making these color choices and dodger size both critical and effective. Note: Depth is determined by the fish. For example, it may be late June, but it may also be ice-out in the North, but the fish may be at 70 feet in the South. Use of a quality color fish finder is key, as well as using a device that can accurately measure temperature at depth such as those manufactured by FishHawk Electronics.
Copper also has unique properties in the water. As you go down the water column, the yellow and orange component in copper is filtered out (absorbed by the water), darkening the copper dodger blade and copper components. This has a wonderful increase in visibility for copper against the water surrounding it. Copper dodgers should be presented at increased speeds because you will use them to provoke a bite when regular nickel presentations seem to be ineffective. The larger and ribbed copper spinner will add increased vibrations to your presentation. visible, pounding, and efficient. Kokanee are especially fond of copper. A couple of these dodgers could save the day, if not even make the day.
Always fish a lure that matches the color scheme of the dodger leading it. Kokanee will first key in on the dodger (attraction). The dodger color scheme imprints the Kokanee with a particular color sequence, which is best duplicated in the lure (provoking a strike).
