Go as heavy as you can on tackle. When the proper fish are around 0.6 to 0.64 mainline and 1.8mm leaders are not unheard of. Don't fish alone and when it comes to big fish expect to lose more than you land. As much as I don't like gaffing them it's sometimes the only way to get a fish out there safely. To start with, especially if there's a very big swell try fish spots that are on the "front mountain" like platbankies, vogelsteen and koei en kalf. Basically any of the areas before the road starts to climb and bend around the mountain towards Rooi Els. The swell runs parallel to the mountain here which makes things safer and easier. Also a much easier walk down. Proper Gumboots/shoes with good grip are a must of course.

Chicken of the Sea...

please bring my headlamp tonite;)


the mountain can deliver good fish...

be prepared to fish the worst conditions prevail in terms of wind n rain... it is dangerous at times.


as Chicken said, go heavy to avoid being bullied.

Be careful, and never go there alone. Then the rest of the advice above. The crosses all over the mountains from Gordonsbay to Kleinmond aren't chrismas decorations.

Hi There - Go to Vogelsteen spot. Park at the Steenbrasdam entrance and walk +- 50 meters East - you will see where and then go down below. Its is also called lucky packet because anything can come out there. Big sharks to rays or even edible fish
