The cold weather was really drying up the bait fish, meaning we didn’t really have any bait for the larger species. While trying to catch the baitfish, with small pieces of pilchard, we hooked on to something big! This was on 6 pound mainline and 8 pound trace. It was clearly a salmon after it took a few jumps as we were winding him in. It took about ten minutes but we finally brought it in, having to beach it. We also managed a small squid towards the end of the day.
