I have marked some spots here that I think will make pretty good spots for fishing (1 to 6). This picture taken with Google Earth is the Eastern Knysna head.

Any comments on how good these spots will be to fish in?
Any other spots on the picture you think that will be good to try?

I'm going on holiday in December 2008 and will be staying in Mosselbay.

I'm also very interested to find out good fishing spots for edibles in and around Mossel bay / knysna area.

I will keep watching your posting maybe someone can help.

As you come into knysna on the right hand side before the bridge you can fish there,also try the knysna heads cant remember the restaurants name,their is a walking trail to the left of it walk down until you see a broken bridge i have never fished their but seen many anglers fishing their you can also tell by all the pilchard boxes laying around however their is no access to the water and have to cast from the top.Also try Noetzi beach (not sure if spelled correct) have seen guys fishing their as well however cant say what they were catching.I visit kynsna/Plett @least once or twice a year but hardly ever get time to fish.Hope my info will help.

East of the heads, 1)Coney Glen,leeries on live bait and cracker in the gullys, Shad when running.Foul ground.2)"no name" notice rod holders cemented in the rocks,good spot, rough water, watch the swell/get wet getting there be prepared to sit out the tide.3/4/5 ?? yes cant say names? #6 - yes good spot, vantage point in the rocks, foul ground as well.Good for blacktail ets.
Eastward it gets rougher and wilder,sea dangerous.
Sand Prawn/Kappers,blood worm all in the galloon.
Take care.

All those spots look good, but depending on the sea - was there last weekend and it was too rough to fish.  Ended up at the restaurant at the bottom of the Heads, and fished into the channel from the white lighthouse.  There are some good signboards there to guide you where not to fish.  Some local were hanging out with worm and sardine and caught some very small edibles.  Further along the walkway some stumpies came out. 

I would like to go pick up on the big bite i had just before i left... nothing else to show for the outing.
