I find the best is a home made spinner and a small lead with a slow retrieve
most of us that fish the Cap and Ambleside make our own
and we all do them a bit different
red beads green beads
ive seen some that look like xmas trees :lol:
and some plain and simple :?
just some do better than others
yet somtimes a buzbomd does well :?

No action for me tonight, but of course I'm not sure I know what I'm doing. :) Fished from 5:30 p.m. to about 8:30 p.m. Started by a little bridge (which carried a railroad) near what I'm guessing is the river junction (?), and worked my way west along the beach, ending up at a little area with a totem pole that jutted out from the beach. Very few people fishing. I was using spoons. Got no bites at all. :( But with my current set up (as I mentioned in another thread, I'm new to the area from Florida), I could only get my lure out probably about 30-40 yards.

Did get to see the area for the first time, and watching the sunset was awesome. Plus three college kids climbed up on the aforementioned bridge and jumped in the water. That was quite a hoot. :)

ahhh i know where u were fishing not what i had in mind but none the less from where u were i woulda went right to where the ocean part is witch would be south west from where u were and look for some rock piles with i think act as a breakwater where u were is partly saltwater mixed with fresh i think (now this is just a guess) but i think the ocean part is where you want to fish right not the river mouth? where u were tonight is an awesome place to fish on super low tides where you can walk out and almost catch the fish with your hands<<<pun....if i knew the roads that lead to the best spots i'd give ya directions but i'm from surrey and i haven't a clue on the names of the streets in west vancouver but let me say you were very close to the hot spot i'm sure of it! maybe someone on this forum can assist you on these large rockpiles i speak of! on a high tide i see people here all the time fishing(and catching) constantly from shore!

I was walking around today with wife and kids after lunch time, and saw quite a few people along the shore. Don't know if they were catching anything, but they were sure trying. I think I'll know where to go next time.

I couldn't believe how much water gets sucked out in the first low tide, I mean it was incredible going back there. I could see where all my lures were getting stuck the night before!
