Re: What weapon do you use to slay salmon ?


Toms method works a treat,have done the same on the rakaia over the years,something the old boys seem to do more than the younger blokes.Baitman,I once seen my mates old man pull an 18lber out of the rakaia on a 36g zeddie..he is an expert angler and has fished for salmon all his life,he said that in marginal conditions the fish will take the big ones,he also used them on the waitaki to get down!!..personally,I prefer to use the lightest spinner I can to get the job done effectively whether at the mouth or up river,that way you have a superior action to intice a bite!!..imo
