Hi Italo,First of all, thank you for all the help you provide with your fishing knowledge. I have learnt a lot from watching your videos.I am planning on fishing the Niagara Whirlpool for salmon this coming week. I would appreciate if you can give me some tips on what types of lures to use. I currently have little cleo spoons 2/5oz, 3/4 oz, and glow in dark 3/4 ox spoon. I also have rapala husky jerk crankbait and a few flatfish lures.Ihave never been there so not sure if I should be using lures or float fishing.Any advice would be greatly appreciated.ThanksAliPosted on September 29th, 2015
Thank you for your kind words. I get the most satisfaction when I know I have helped anglers with catching fish! I was just at the Whirlpool yesterday and there appears to be just a few salmon in at this time. This is unusual since by the end of Sept., there are usually lot’s there. Perhaps it will be a smaller run this fall. The spoons will work well there if you cast them out and let them flutter with the current while every once and a while lifting them up so that it’s almost a “vertical” flutter. The current is pretty strong and just letting the spoons drift with the current while having a tight line will produce enough fluttering action with them. From my experience fishing there the Jointed Rapala #13 in either the fluorescent orange/gold, or the chartreuse/silver are the most productive for salmon. It really helps if you can cast far to cover a lot of water. Hope you catch some fish!
