speed is a very important factor, I generally troll 2.8 to 3.2 mph, cover more water , reaction strikes and believe me, they can easily catch that spoon. Good luck

Thx Dano....need all the luck I can get.

Looks to me like you might have the sensitivity turned way up, and itís marking pretty much everything in the water column. Iíve never seen ďsalmonĒ that thick anywhere on the bay before. Usually itís just a couple hooks on the screen here and there, and quite often when I do see one it will hit. But itís the bay, theyíre not as thick as Lake Ontario so you just gotta keep washing lures till you find one that wants to play. Iíve also found that both salmon and lakers will bite way better if theyíre not getting harassed constantly, so I try to get as far away from the crowds as I can. Most times when Iím trolling out there, I canít see another boat anywhere.

Seguin fisher has some solid advice about what you're seeing on the finder nothing there looks like salmon to me, and again turn off the fish ID.

I know a salmon when I see one on the finder usually 1 or 2 active moving hooks coming in for a sniff... Took some pictures this morning seconds before fish hit.

I can reiterate what Sequin Fisherman and 12 footspringbok have said.

I NEVER use fish ID mode on the finder.

Longfish: Here are a couple screen shots; a rising fish and some bait fish with a trout below (next).

Just a suggestion..... that could also help. Some of the overlay information could be resized and/or eliminated. The date and position (lat/long) displayed could be eliminated and thus free up some sonar screen. If you resized the other information may also give you more screen history. For example, the depth could remain large allowing you to read it from the back of the boat when setting you downriggers(?). The speed, a little smaller. And the volt and time display, could be the size of you time is now. Or any other formatting that suits your "fancy". Again, just a suggestion to help.

If there are lots of boats in your area try hanging out at the launch and ask people what depth they are catching salmon at. People are usually friendly if they have caught a bunch of fish. Thereís nothing like first hand info and fishermen are good people. Tight lines.

Most of my rigging has been on lake ontario, but when i do fish the bay ive always found i need to use lighter line, smaller swivels and longer leads off the ball, just all around more stealthy, earlier am and later pm as well
