Salmon At The Moles

 Hi all, I was planning on trying to catch my first salmon tomorrow and was going to head down to one of the moles to try, but I havent seen any posts of salmon being caught around the moles recently on the salmon tracker page or anything else. So I was wondering if it is still possible to catch them around the moles or have they moved on too different parts.

 Get some blue shallow diving lures and have a go off the tip of either moles and I am sure you will catch one.

 I've been to the moles

 I've been to the moles around 3 times in the past week and a half and have had nothing apart from one trip a couple of them chased my lure up to the rocks and hit it but didnt take the hooks, so I'm hoping the salmon will come back, or do they move on too different parts of the coast around this time?

At Mewstone, we tried four

At Mewstone, we tried four different lures before we found one that caught. They were not in frenzy mode.

 

My lure of choice is a Smilin Jack. You can get them for $11 at some places and they are magnets. Cast them out and rip them back in. If you retreive too slow, if the fish are not in attak mode, they will come for a look then swim away. If you rip it in, they need to commit and bang, you're on!

 I read that the river erupted with big schools again today.

I would expect the inclement weather disperses bait and predators alike hence patchy session over past week, weather settling for the moment fish regathering
