can any fish be used as successfull bait or only the fish that is generally preyed on by the target fish?

i ask as i have a collosal salmon i boght from tesco for next to nothing, and although i'm gonna make a nice meal from it, not all of it will get eaten, so was wondering if i could use some of the uncooked scraps for bait?

or should i just make and freeze some posh fish cakes?

Stick with the fishcakes :D :D Salmon is one of the oily fish so it could have potential as bait but I still think you would be better off eating it.

why dont you buy yourself a trap get them on ebay for a decent price.

Any fish I catch that are over sized or from tesco ha ha ha once I have filleted them I freeze the head and guts and use them as trap bait last summer got quite a few crabs and sand eel's in the trap I used.

This year think am going to use traps a bit more and see what I can pull up in there and on the line.
