Salmon lures

Hello,
I recieved a 10$ voucher for BCF and have decided to spend it on a salmon lure. Do you guys have any recommendations?

Halco twisty or anything that looks similar.
Another option is soft plastics. But you don't get as much casting distance with them

Gillies baitfish are as good as anything.
Halco twisties are good, but simply don't fly well enough for me.
Lasers in 50gram are missiles, great lures as well.
Got couta..?

Get a gillies pilchard and a halco twisty. Can't go wrong with those as mainstream brands.

I was trolling with 2 yozuris and the New z man activated pilchard and that zman din even get it once. The yozuris were getting hit all the time including a few doubles. The only thing that zman ever caught was me.

Is it pssible to catch flathead, pinkies and salmon on blades?
If so, which ones are the best? Are Kato Aura blaes any good? (Clearance at bcf, 4$ each) And how would i work it?
