Winds; North West is bo11ocks, as it is racing parralel to the beach, North East is perfect, northerly is fishable, round to east nor east. Obviously I'm talking about winds above 10knots here, anything under that, you can fish any direction really.
Lures, whatever casts well. Busted lures from Frank Fernkorn are awesome, lazers are Excellent, as are Gillies baitfish. I would say 40 grams and above for normal conditions, for a number of reasons, but you go to what weight your rod will handle.
Walk, cast, Walk, cast.
He who casts most, wins. Remember that saying when your lure fishing down there, it will stand you in good stead.
I'd normally start somewhat past the steps, work my way up past the first set of rocks on the way to Cape Schanck, and back again.
Look for anything that stands out, edges of gutters are good, patches of wash on calmer days, obviously any dark patches that are moving lol...
Bait fishing, ask guys who know, I only bait fish for gummies down there, so I'm not really the person to ask.
Any detailed questions, pm me.
Got couta..?

I use a decoy egg snap, hitched onto a small barrel swivel.
Only snap we've found that simply won't lock back on itself while casting.

Wanting to go this Saturday but not sure about SW winds at 25. Not sure if rig will get out to the areas. other wise may stick to piers on ppb side. Does anyone think that wind will be fishable?

Bait fish down there quite a bit when I’m feeling lazy and couldn’t be bothered walking the beach. By far the majority of fish caught have taken a surf popper (usually lime green, but blue or red have also taken a few). Take a variety of sinkers with you. Although you want to fish as light as you can, the side wash can make keeping a bait in place difficult.
