Hey everyone I am not totally new to Salmon fishing, I did a couple days worth last year and caught . . . absolutely nothing. I know that Salmon and trout are the toughest of fish to catch in Ontario and thats why i am intrigued, plus my pride is hurt from last years failure. So I have some questions and i would like for them to be answered if you don't mind.
1: What month generally do Salmon start running up creeks and rivers?
2: Does Salmon rue truly work much better if it doesn't come out of a vending machine? or a restaurant?
3: When fishing creeks, is all like that your waiting there and then theres no Salmon and then suddenly a huge crowd of over 200 pass by you for a minute?
4: How often do Salmon eat when they are running?
5: Is it much easier to catch them with a float rod as oppose to a spinning reel?
6: Do you have a greater chance of catching a salmon during night fishing?
7: How many Salmon would you say are typically caught from one run in a creek?
8: Are waders a good idea?
9: Would you ever recommend to eat A salmon which came from Lake ontario? Im not eating one but I would like to know to discourage others.
10: As I am pretty much brand spanking new to this, is there any obvious things I must or should know first before heading out this year?
Any help you can give me will be greatly appreciated, thank you.
