Re: The effort and cost of catching a Salmon


Another thing zedchucker – I spent 6 years ‘doing the right thing’ chucking zeddies out and slow retrieves. In all that time I had 2 takes and lost both – 1 was definitely a Salmon – the other may have been a Kahawai. I don’t enjoy slow retrieves and it wasn’t working for me. So I swiched in the last few weeks to bigger trout lures and faster (not fast) retrieves and I lost a big 1 – so sorted my reel and line out – then landed my first fish. That’s not advice – that’s fact. Maybe I just got lucky or maybe its going to work good for me and bring that $ per fish down :)
