Re: bait fishing for salmon

Fishy Bishy

Head down and within a metre of the bottom was always best. The Salmon will take a bait from tail on but the dorsal and other fins lay flat when eaten head first, a common feeding pattern in pelagics. The float will lie on its side if your bait touches the bottom or if it snags on weed etc and stands up when presented right. I just love watching floats bounce! (then disappear…… :wink: )
