    unverified, but one of the guys at the Hunting and fishing store just told me 1 boat lost 5 salmon and landed two in one day up the Taieri Gorge, one 35lb and the other 37lb. he said he had photos but i never got to see.

    but this comes soon after a number of very large fish including one 34lb that have been caught there.

    I also have a friend who said their boat lost 8 and landed 1 salmon a few weeks back.

    yet to catch something from shore :(

    Just a question to some of you Salmon anglers, what do you do with the heads of the fish you catch?

    I reckon theres a nice bit of water on the northern beach where I go whitebaiting, that could harbour salmon. I tried there a few times last year but all I got was a foul hooked flounder. Is that where the salmon where caught. I might try up the track on the south side past the cribs.

    What lures are people using? Ive been trying silver zeddys and splices with no luck.

    22g DAM zed with full scales is the business if you can find them. They hold their shine for days on end when everything else dulls off.

    Don’t use them at Mackies tho, to precious to lose in that snagfest!

    try a small black with some gold on it in clear water works well up here. white with a green stripe has also been working well up here supprisingly in clear water. i use custom painted charcoal grey one side, white the undersideand add a bit of glitter- mainly from nailpolish that has holographic bits in it.

    Sorry I should have been more specific, I meant what are people catching them on in the Taieri. Its a different river to most canterbury rivers. Kinda dirty peat stained river which is why Im not sure whether they go for the classic silver zeddy with a bit of red like they do in my old Waitaki river.
