    Rock fishing can produce some of the best catches and it’s an excellent sport for anglers of all types.

    The main issue with rock fishing is that you must obey the hard and fast rules of rock fishing.

    • Never fish alone, always go with a mate, preferably someone who has had rock fishing experience.
    • Always keep your eye on the sea, and if possible retreat at the first sign of a dangerous swell.
    • If you are caught by a wave surging over your spot, stand with one foot in front of the other, with your weight on the front foot facing the surge. Go in prepared, know the impending weather forecast and also spend time observing the sea conditions on the spot you want to fish before heading out over the rocks.
    • Use fishing life jacket vest
    • Make sure you use Rockhopper fishing boots
