Fridays on The Pier – 1960s
The Seal Beach pier has been a favorite subject for photographers throughout its 95 years of history. Every Friday between now and the end of the Seal Beach Founders Celebration, we’ll be posting an image of the pier.
This is not an image of the pier obviously, but Seal Beacher Larry Moore remarked on Facebook recently that such little effort was being spent on preserving Southern California sports fishing history. I really don’t have any material to add to Seal Beach fishing history, other than posting this single photo I bought on eBay. The Chinook Sport Fisher operated from the Seal Beach pier, so that’s enough of a pier connection for me.
If you have a historical story, a photo, tall tale, or some other information about fishing from the pier, the Chinook Sport Fisher, or in the waters off the Seal Beach shores, please share them in our comments or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.That’s all for this week. Have a great weekend, and be sure to check back each week for more historical photos and stories of Seal Beach.
