The Fish With Gary™ System 3 Dodgers present a radical departure from the usual blade design. High visibility for maximum contrast is combined with rotational, pulsing vibrations. When coupled with a matching FWG lure, the combination provokes a reactive bite in many instances where regular dodgers and lures are ignored by your target fish.
These dodgers incorporate a three lobed "leaf" design in an ultralight blade. The blade itself has a narrow offset recurve entry, with a wide counter balancing lobed tail. The unique aspect of this design is that it allows the fisherman to change the action of the blade simply by increasing or decreasing the presentation speed. Slow presentation will give a back and forth wobble. Increased speed will allow the whole blade to rotate in an arc, similar to that of a trolled cut plug herring so effective on king salmon. This arc rotation drives fish crazy, and gives your trailing lure tremendous arc action as well. With this presentation, you can not only target Kokanee, but also Mackinaw (lake trout), Bull Trout, ‘Bows, Browns, landlocked Kings and Cohos.. Just pick your target speed and do it.
The arc rotation will not twist your line, as I have incorporated an in-line bead chain swivel that works in conjunction with two other crane swivels. The dodger is free to move about without any line twisting. Blade design reduces drag.
These Dodgers also have the unique FWG up-front beads and willow blade spinner to enable a maximum color presentation. Short leaders are preferred, about 6-8" behind dodger, (unless you are using an Apex or similar type lure, which requires a leader of about 27").
Always use 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).
