Hi guys, A combo halibut/salmon trip last year out of holmer when we caught loads of salmon on downriggers has spurred me to give it a try on my own boat here in scotland, as far as i know no one has used this method to catch atlantic salmon localy and advice is non existant on scottish forums, I fish on a coastline with 5 big salmon rivers within 60 miles of me and there are salmon and seatrout that are caught in shallow water trolling tobys etc, so here is some questions.......
What distance from bait/spinner to flasher?
what distance from flasher to weight?
does salmon tend to swim mid to surface or can you hook up near the seabed aswell?
is speed more important than the angle of the downrigger line (45*)?
recomend ball or fish shapped weights?
