Hi, I'm in Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, BC, Canada. I recently moved into an area right by the sea and I was inspired by this site to try surfcasting. I have lots of gear from lake/river fishing (for bass and trout), but not much for saltwater. My area is known for some good salmon runs, and I believe year-round coastal cutthroats. Right now, coho and possibly chinook and pinks should be swimminng against the shore, and cutthroats if I can find them. Can anyone shed some light on how to find them/gear to use? What's the minimum rod action and line strength I should use? My current daily rod is a medium/light Fenwick with a spinning reel spooled with 6lb fluoro, obviously not good for salmon but for the cutties would that be enough?
