Where to Fish?
As you know the beach is long (6kms) so to find the best spot can be a little tricky. It’s best to visit the beach in low tide and look for various gutters and holes. Other then low tide look for areas where the waves do not break. These are indications of holes or gutters, predatory large fish will be waiting.
Peak times on beaches are controlled by tide and daylight. At dusk or dawn, regardless of tide, there is often some action. A high tide with either of these times is the perfect arrangement for fish to feed.
