How To Fish
Fishing is superb here. You have got excellent rock platforms with good footing and deep water very close in. With this in mind, a long cast is not necessary. You can reap this venue in the summer by float fishing for Wrasse and Pollack or spinning for the Bass. Peeler crab reigns supreme here with Bullhuss being a good target, my personal best being 12 1/2lbs. Mackerel are also caught here by the bucket load, fantastic on light tackle fishing with feathers.
In winter the Codling to 10lbs arrive with the Coalies caught on fish and worm baits. Conger Eels always put in a show up to 20lbs in weight, best caught on a mackerel flapper. Also here the Doggies are in abundance along with good size Whiting caught on fish baits.
