Hi Guys,
I have been reading everything I can all over the place about where to go and what to use ect. I am coming from Australia and I arrive on Sunday for a week to visit my Parents who stay in Marina Martinique and then we head off down to Sedgefield for a weekend, and then last stop will be Mosselbay(the point) for a week..
I am bringing a small travel rod and a couple lures/spoons so not very well equipped for massive surf fishing, but I was hoping to get some time to go throw a line and maybe catch something to cook...

My Dad(in-law) who is not a fisherman says that he has got another rod for me as well as the "Fish like a local" book so that might be a option as well.
I am really just looking to see what I should be targeting and where about. Was hoping to get a couple elf(if they are still around).
Any help is appreciated....

Thanks Steve

Hi Big Steve
There is a small pier within walking distance from Marina Martinque.  The locals target shad there on spoons, and full sardines (with no sinker).  This is generally done on the high tide. The pier can get very crowded, however I found the fisherman to be very friendly.

If you use small hooks and pieces of sardines, you will get lots of pinkies and caranteen. on the side of the pier.  If I find that the pinkies are destroying every bait , I would catch one and use it as a live bait.

Good Luck and let us know if you catch anything!

On the beach by super tubes ask some surfers where the bottom keyhole is where they paddle out, it’s a big gap in the rocks, making for a decent path for your lures. Lots of decent sized schools of shad there in the evenings, and you can watch them chase and smash top waters from far out all the way into the gully on flat days.

Hi Guys,
Thanks for that. I have been fishing at the pier near walskipper in the past so will defs give that a go. I also like the sound of the spot near Supertubes and my brother-in-law used to surf down there so think I know where the keyhole is. Appreciate the tips and will put up a report when I am back in AUS..
CheersSteve
