We were camping last summer on the sunshine coast, caught a bunch of perch, half pile perch and half were striped sea perch.. The striped ones are really beautiful fish, but the pileys were huuuuge!  We ate them at camp by just pan frying them, just like you would a sunfish...very very tasty with a little lemon squeezed on top here and there, and a little pepper.  I think its actually my new favorite tasting fish.

They sure are tasty but trying to catch them with bunch of shiner swimming around is a big challenge in itself.

Do you guys fish for pile or stripe perch in Vancouver? If so, where? And what would be the bait of choice.

Thanks. Ian ;D

Yes.  I've seen more striped perch than pile perch, but that might just be me.

Fish off any dock really, but I only ever saw shiners at Jericho.  People catch then at Ambleside, I catch them at CRAB park.  Most anywhere I guess.

Any bait, but most people think that sea worms work best.  I like salted shrimp meat or squid, but everthing I've tried seems to work.

Good enough for ya?

Salting the shrimp makes the meat tougher so it stays on the hook longer.

The shiners are very tasty, cooked just the way that Marmot said,that's what  I do and I agree, they are great. You can find them in vancouver at barnet marine park but i wouldn't eat those, for me sunshine coast is the best place to get them, also in bowen island, tons of them, it is also a great time for kids and if you get your two kids with you, you can get 24 home!!! My favorite bait for them is a tiny piece of chciken, it stays on the hook even after you've cought several, I have also used a piece of dew worm that you let dry and harden for about 10 min under the sun, it works fine too.
With the big ones, I've never had much luck.

Off the beaches at Fort Bragg California we surf fish for large surf perch. Some up to 24 inches tho those are rare, most in the 18 inch size. Use rock worms and 11 foot rods to get out to the fish. Clean and cook right on the beach, yum ,yum. ;D
