The transition from summer to fall can offer some great shore fishing for all angler.  One of my favourite types of fishing is pier fishing for big fall salmon.  The salmon begin to move shallower with the cooler temperatures to stage before moving into rivers to spawn.

As the fish move shallower they can be caught off local piers and shorelines.  The most opportune time to catch these big game fish is from dusk into the early hours of the morning.  They feed actively at night and prefer to move shallower with the cooler temps.

A good lure of choice is a glow in the dark spoon.  In order to make them glow, you have to charge the paint with a light.   The stronger the light, the brighter the lure will glow. To get good casting distance ¾ ounce spoons or bigger are best.

A good rain fall or drop in temperature can get these fish active.  A lot of the time the worse the weather, the better the fishing.

There are a lot of local spots to try your luck for these big fish.  The closest to Hamilton would be Fishermans Pier and Bronte Pier.  Almost all the major piers on Lake Ontario will offer great Salmon fishing at some point during the fall.
