Salmon

High in protein and oil, salmon are a great bait that have accounted for a lot of pike in the last few seasons. Although not commonly used, we think that pike instinctively know from the smell they release into the water that they are a great food source, even in venues that do not have a run of salmon. We often have both salmon parr (which resemble trout) and salmon smolts (which have an incredible silver sheen) available.

Salmon are also a tough skinned bait, making them ideal for tactics that are hard on baits, such as sink and draw, trotting in rivers and trolling. These baits are roughly 8 inches in length, making them ideal for big pike.

PLEASE NOTE THAT SALMON BAITS ARE BANNED IN SOME AREAS OF THE UNITED KINGDOM – PLEASE CHECK LOCAL BYLAWS BEFORE USING.

Usage

Although you can use salmon on all of the standard pike set-ups, one particularly effective approach is to fish them under a float and continually twitch and slowly retrieve the bait. Being quite buoyant the salmon will flutter enticingly and this often bring bites on days when the pike are not feeding confidently. We recommend using a size 4 Twin Treble Trace with salmon.
