When fishing for salmon out of Fort Bragg i notice that everyone trolls and i was wondering why? Does mooching work better then trolling. If it does why has mooching not caught on up here?

I'm no salmon expert, but I have heard that trolling is best when the fish are scattered. You can cover much more ground. As the season progresses and the big schools of salmon follow the large schools of bait near shore, the fishermen can switch to mooching. You can always mooch as long as you find concentrations of salmon (and/or bait)... but sometimes the salmon will prefer one method over the other. I'm sure others can add to this. Up there, maybe the fish are spread out?? My 2cents.

if your a green horn i'd stay to trolling but if you got time on the water mooching can be just as effective as trolling
