The Grdosic family really enjoy getting out for different species of fish and also enjoying them fresh-caught. Recently they fished Lake Ontario for eating-size salmon.
Even though many anglers try and hook big Chinook Salmon, the smaller fish in the 5-7lb range are the best for eating. They usually have a firmer, pink colored flesh.
Same lures will work for the smaller salmon that includes fluttering spoons fished off downriggers, flasher/fly combination and also cut-bait/heads fished either off a downrigger, Dipsey Diver or sinking lines.
The main key to locating the smaller salmon is to get off-shore in deeper water where the juvenile fish are feeding all season long.
