Hi

I was using gulp 3 inch banana prawn softbaits with 1/6oz jigheads, A lot of people use 1/8 and even 1/12oz jigheads for a better softbait action but I find you cant cast them very far they don’t sink quick enough.

As for the time of day I think morning is the best time as most of the Salmon We caught were before lunch and then in the afternoon the fishing was much slower.

If your exclusively Targeting Salmon drive down past the mt cook Salmon farm a few kilometres down to where the canal widens into a small lake and fish just above the spillway gates as the salmon seem to congregate around this area, This is where we caught most of our Salmon.
