Green with envy Ant... I really love that area, and being on the peninsular, you will have the Linene estuary, sand spit and very close reefs offshore all withing striking distance.

The estuary has produced couta, kings, grunter and many more. Also a great place to get livies if that's what you fancy.

The sand spit is great on an early morning pushing tide... take 8' popping rod with a minimum 10k reel and 80-100lb braid. The geets that play there are strong. It's also nice during the day with lighter tackle, tho the wolf herrings can become a P.I.T.A. when they are hungry. But good green spots, Big eyes, geets... I even got a monster bonefish on a halco twist there once.

For offshore, take 120-160g poppers, stickbaits and a strong rig (nothing wrong with a 200g kaibutso/10k gosa). Pop with the drag set high, those buggers cut you off in seconds on the shallow reefs. There's also fantastic fun to be had with dropshot on the reefs. Lots of species. If you want to do some jigging, there's good dropoffs up toward Baz. Some very strong Ambers in the area.

Another option is to head south down to the lighthouse (about 20ks if I recall correctly... and there's no lighthouse there) But fantastic shallow reef system that will tax your tackle to the limit.

Shout if you need crew. ;)
