Hey Gang. I was watching Venture on CBC when they featued a story on Tofino. One of the camera cutaways showed guys fishing teh surf from the rocks on Long Beach, one guy had two nice perch or bass on his bar rig. My kinda fishing action!

As a kid I remember watching an old chinese guy catching similar fish off of the seawall just east of Lion's gate, but I don't see people fishing there anymore.

I know in Mexico, there are TONS of great fish in the surf just a few feet off shore. I've snorkelled LOTS in our waters, and I've never seen schools of fish hanging around like that, and I've only caught perch / bass near pilings.

My question; has anyone ever had any success surf casting in / around vancouver? I know you can snag a salmon in season if your're lucky & casting near a river mouth. Fishing from docks/piers is great, but I just can't seem to find a tasty recipe for bullheads on the 'net.

Your thoughts?

ps: I'm still lookin' for a trailer & 80hp OB for my 17.5' Zodiac!
