I went Salmon fishing from shore once last year, and while I didnt catch anything, I am tempted to try some Lake Michigan fall shore fishing in Two Rivers this year. I was hoping I could get some advise on the basics for gear.
Lure starter kit (i.e. most common lures, colors, and sizes the knowledgeable fisherpeople use. )
Pole strength / Pole Length / tip speed?
Pole/Reel type? Spinning / Bait Caster ?
Type of line (mono - braided?) and test rating (.lb)
Anyone have a cheap combo setup they would recommend? I would only go fishing once or twice a year for Salmon. I may even just using my large walleye trolling rods and swap out the lead core reels for whatever I choose to use for salmon.
