Here's what I've learned in the last two weeks (my 'in English' description):
To catch salmon, you need a deep sea fishing rod with strong line and a braided/steel leader line (which connects your lure/spoon), with a flasher, a spoon (the spoon has the hook and bait), and a weight (commercial fishermen use 50lb lead ball weights, we used a small 10oz ball (meep-meep!). You can find wild salmon at about 40+ feet below, so you need to either have a weighted line, or get a deep sea diver (a fancy red paper-airplane looking thing that dives down many feet). You have to have patience, which I have none of when checking the line :) There are two types of salmon - wild and farmed coho. There is a small fin above the tail on one (wild) and not the other as its been cut off (farmed), if you keep the wrong one, you can be fined when in Washington!
it's not someone you may know - lol! Tuna doesn't swim as deep as salmon, so you don't need the weight! You can just send the line out and hope they bite.
Have we caught anything? Not yet. I'm open for pointers, thoughts, etc if you have any ideas.
