Hi Plugger
Normally we just start looking for bait on the finder as soon as you get behind the backline. Anywhere from 7m to about 17m. There is scattered reef all over that area. You can work north towards St Lucia, I know there is a sunken container around there somewhere but it is nothing like Durban where you drive up to a spot and they are either there or they are not.
Sound around and keep an eye on the finder. Most importantly be there first! Those mozzies don't hang around for long

Thanks Van,

Hi
I'm going down in August to St. Lucia.
Very keen to go with the kayak to Vidal.
Is there any do's and don'ts fishing Vidal that I have to know off.
How is the fishing lately around there?
