It's between kraaines and spookdraai. Just before you get to the turn into agulhas a gravel road goes down to your left. The houses stop on your left hand side. It's in front of the fourth or so house from the turn. Follow it down, to your left at low tide at waters edge you will see a six meter long light brown rock in the shape of a bread.

Low and pushing best. Can be fished on a neap tide all day

I do guided fishing trips in the Struisbaai area old school.

Any of the rocky areas have red crabs. Just roll some boulders over. A search on sealine will give you some of the well known cracker spots along this coastline.

Good luck. The ones nailed them in Dec

Hi Sealiners,

I will be in Cape Agulhas for the weekend of 24 - 28 September. I do not know the fishing spots very well and I do not have a 4 wheel drive.
I have seen the info and maps that you guys have posted and it is extremely helpful.
Questions...The wind forecast is a westerly - how bad will that be for fishing because the S/E is the best wind for fishing.
I'm think of trying around the shipwreck and later at Struisbaai at Argonauta, Die Brood and Skulpiesbaai mostly for edibles like galjoen, zebra and hotties. Hopefully cracker, kob and elf.

Id love to fish at the Plaat but will be driving a Kia Sportage so no 4x4.

I'd love some pointers please guys.
