In Dunedin’s Otago Harbour they catch most of the salmon on dead sprats fished from the wharves. You can catch the sprats (small fish see: https://fishingmag.co.nz/deepsea-sprat.htm) with a second lighter rod and small bait flies. You are allowed to use two rods in this instance. The locals also get the salmon with paravanes and lures trolled behind boats near the harbour entrance. During summer some of the boat guys get salmon up to 20 lbs nearly everytime they go out. Ask at Ellios in South Dunedin, or Hunting and Fishing. They will show you how to set up your gear to get a salmon. Yellowfin :wink:
