A fews buddies and I are going to Stillbaai on 26 Aug. Please advise fishing spots and baits needed. What fish can we target here. We heard Ystervarkfontein is a good spot there but cannot find it on GoogleMaps - please assist with directions in getting there.

Much appreciated.

Have a look at MMM's videos regarding Ystervarkfontein, there are many.

Ystervarkfontein is far from Stilbaai and access is limited. Moreover, there are a lot of good fishing spots in and around Stilbaai and Jongensfontein. August you will be targeting rock/reefs species galjoen, kolstert, bluefish, and maybe the odd bellman and cracker. So take variety of bait, rebait, mussel and some worm. You can fish either Stilbaai between the harbour and Visvywers, walk around the point from visvywers towards Jongenstfontein or walk from Jongensfontein east, back towards Stilbaai or West towards Heuningnes baai. It really just depends on your groups fitness and willingness to walk (pack light). Although there are some "spots" it's so variable depending on the ocean conditions that it's best to choose a spot that looks good, fish it for a while and move on if it doesn't produce anything. If the see is flat fish off the points at low tide and if it's big high tide in the bays/gulleys should produce.

And if you are an old toppie like me, you take the gravel road past the harbour (west). Good spots and close parking.
To the east follow the signes to the "Preekstoel" Close parking, good spots.
