Subsequently, one may also ask, how do you pick a salmon rod?
Choose a length
- You can cast a short distance with shorter ones, also you can use lightweight lures with shorter rods. Shorter ones are perfect for fighting big fishes or in a big game fishing.
- Longer rods can cast farther, good for surfcasting. You can cast to a long length standing in a shoreline.
What do you use for salmon fishing?
Salmon eggs are the top choice for bait, although sand shrimp are very popular for chinook salmon. Some anglers like to fish both at the same time. Marabou jigs (Photo 10) can be used instead of bait and can be especially effective on pink salmon, or other salmon when the water is very low and clear.
