Default salmon fishing?

Considering going after some salmon this coming weekend. Ive never been before. anybody got any tips? what kind of tackle? rigs? locations? basicly any input would be great. I keep seeing all these pics of huge fish and I really want to hook into one. With any luck and some help from all of you I hope to be posting some killer pics next sunday.
thanks in advance

Make sure you have a good rod with no lighter than 10lb. line and a reel with a smooth drag. Get some spoons (KO wobblers seem to be working the best this year), some rattlebaits, and some jointed stickbaits. Mix it up. Keep casting. Next weekend is going to be a hot bite, unless we get some really bad weather.
