Hi, been awhile since i've gone after greenling.  I've had success under the bridge using sea worms, prawns and live bait (shiners) for a vaiety of species including pile perch, rock cod, lingcod, greenling and dog fish. High slack tide is usually the best time to fish; using medium to heavy action rods with a bar rig set-up.  If you want to target greenling, they love sea worms ;)

Hey guys,  I used to fish the seawall all the time,  I still do occassionally.  Don't bother trying to fish off the seawall near lions gate cuz the seawall is closed until may 21 due to resurfacing of the bike path/walking path. I also heard that fishing for rock cod/lingcod is closed.

Yeah, check your regs on fishing for and retaining rock rod and lings.  Greenling are still abundant, so i don't believe they are closed.

vancouver is area 29 so the regs state 1 rockcod and no lingcod  and 3 greenling as daily limits. :).....i prefer greenling anyday just because they taste so much better. thanks for alll the info guys ..much appreciate it.

Have any of you guys noticed those white thread-like worms in the flesh of bullheads, flounder, greenling, etc?
