Learn the difference when hooking a salmon that took your bait over one that's foul hooked..

When you set the hook on a salmon that took your offering, you'll usually get a few seconds of head shakes. This shows the fish trying to spit your hook. There are some exceptions to this rule... For example: your line rubbing through a salmons mouth and it trying to get it off. If you do set the hook when this happens, you usually hook the fish in the fin or belly. You'll be able to identify if its foul if you cant control the fish when you fight it.

On a fish that's foul hooked, the fish will usually dart and jump immediately trying to get the hook off. When they start jumping, you'll be able to see where the fish has been hooked.

Don't be the guy that fights a foul hooked fish, taking 30mins to land, making people wait for you. Point your rod tip at the fish and pull straight and break off.
