spartan salmon fishing

Recommended Posts

OK....I must confess that "spartan" is an exaggeration. Have a boat but am not rigged for Lake o salmon:

 

Never been and do not have any deep water equipment (downriggers etc). No planar boards.

I do have cleos and some hard baits that will swim at 20ft.

 

I am heading out at 6am for a few hours around darlington.

Any tips on making the most of what I have?

So no one had any tips for a beginner with a lack of equipment?

 

went at 7am, out for 4 hours, trolled at 3mph with deep diving crank baits, guessed at the depths for the lures, lost 2 very quickly after they hit but think I know the salmon/trolling error, caught 3 salmon....5lb, 5lb, 10lb. no pics.

 

Everyone else was using down riggers but only one guy faired better.

 

In all I think it was pretty good, could have landed a couple more and maybe hooked a bit more with some trolling knowledge.
