A word referring to a male that likes to date older women. Similar to a trout (swims downstream in age) who is a 40+ male that likes to date 20 year olds, a salmon (swims upstream in age) is a 20-30 year old that likes to date cougars.
Man, did you see my homey Donny, that salmon slayed 4 cougars last night at the Mix nightclub in Sacramento.

That cougar pounced on the poor unsuspecting salmon.

The act of sneaking up on an unknowing victim at a bar or any other public place and quickly slapping them back and forth between their kneecaps with your hand, thus creating the sensation of a salmon tail swimming between the victim's legs.

A successful salmon results in the person who got salmoned either buckling at the knees or attempting to high-step out of the salmon.

Confusion/anger almost always results after getting salmoned; however, the salmoner can turn the victim's confusion/anger into embarrassment by quickly standing up and shouting, "YOU JUST GOT SALMONED, SON! WOOOO!" while pumping your fist in a ridiculously confident manner.
I was talking to Donk at the bar when Booj snuck up from behind and salmoned him down at the knees then shouted "You just got salmoned, son!"
