Trailers are a type of lure that has proven to be effective in several types of fishing. These lures are designed in craw, grub, and chunk pattern. Large and flowing, they attract the attention of hungry fish used to this type of prey, who bite down and are hooked. They also look great in a tackle box, with their flashy styles and colors they look like real killers. Unfortunately for trailer fans, they are unlikely in the extreme to work on salmon.

To understand why trailers don???t work for salmon, it is necessary to understand the natural feeding habits of these predatory fish. The type of prey that a trailer will typically simulate is not found in the full time habitat of most salmon, the ocean. While grubs and craws might be found in the same general area as kokanee, the land locked sockeye species, these fish are not likely to take artificial trailers as bait since neither grubs nor craw are a part of the kokanee???s regular diet.

It might be easier to understand why salmon refuse to take trailers if you focus on the critters that a trailer represents. Craw and chunk trailers, for example, are designed to impersonate crayfish. A salmon, though, has no understanding of what a crayfish looks like, and in fact will probably associate the shape with a crab if anything at all. What a crab is doing floating around instead of scuttling along the bottom may or may not pique the curiosity of the salmon, but what it will not pique is a feeding instinct.

Some trailers are designed to entice fish through flowing dynamics, not really representing anything at all. Again, these trailers may aggravate other fish, but the closest thing in the salmon???s natural environment that they look like are jellyfish. Any salmon angler will tell you that having jellyfish anywhere on a rig, from the main line to the hook, is a great way to ensure that no salmon will be biting that day, so these tails don???t have much stock as salmon lures.

Luck is definitely a part of salmon fishing; sometimes these fish will take bait no one expected them to rise to, and sometimes the standards don???t work at all. Plastic lures like trailers work well for fresh water species, and especially well for those found in warm water, but salmon are neither of these in their mature form. They are hard enough to entice in their spawning phase, and using lures that actually look like non-food species will not entice them to strike. Stick to plugs or bucktail flies instead of trailers when you are out after salmon, you???ll save time and money.
