    I'm just getting back into salmon fishing after about a 15 year absence. Friend of mine quit about 4 years ago and sent me the remainder of his tackle.
    I remember the J-plugs and dodgers w/ sparkle flies, but some of the spoon colors are new to me.
    Fish either Frankfort or West Grand Traverse Bay.
    See anything here that looks good ?

    It doesn't matter if we see anything that looks good, what matters is what the fish thinks looks good. Personally I might try the half chartreuse/half red.

    A lot of it looks pretty good and will catch fish. I'd lose the squid off the glow spoon and replace it with a regular treble.

    The dodgers and wobbler (peanut looking thing) are more for lake trout. And you typically run them slower than the rest of the stuff in your pic.

    J plugs still work well. That jointed J isn't really common.

    That bugeye fly is a good color. The one I have like it has put several kings into my cooler.

    Looks like the hooks look a bit bent and rusty. You may just want to replace them. Definitely inspect the hooks and sharpen as needed.
