Bait for salmon | Catching Salmon
Salmon are predatory carnivores and they catch fish for food too.
Their choices are pilchards, krill, crustacians (crabs), copepods, and zooplankton. So naturally if you can keeps these alive as bait, you will have a good go at catching them.
Berley is also good for catching - berley is an awful mix of strong smelling things like fish oil, cat food and other delightful things. It can draw the fish to the boat. Makes it very effective.
Lures aren't a good way to keep the salmon as they find it easier to remove themselves, by violently shaking their heads. However it is fun catch and they put up quite a fight. If your up for the challenge a metal lure with holographics on it, and maintaining good tension on the line as you draw it in you can bring salmon in with a lure and berley.
