Struispunt (The Point/Beacon)

These rocky outcrops have numerous spots for fishing.  It is however also very dangerous as it is only accessible during low tide.   When it becomes high tide, the sea closes your access to the beach behind you and before you know it, you are trapped on a rock in the middle of the ocean.  So be careful.

It is a stretch where excellent catches of Galjoen, White Musselcracker, Blacktail, Zebra (Wildeperd) and Karanteen (Strepie) are made.

The occasional shark have also been landed from the rocks, although not many people actually fish for sharks from the rocks because it is too difficult to successfully land the shark.

Baits used here are normally red-bait, worms, bloodworm and white mussels.

Red-bait, black mussel, alikreukel and siffie can be collected from the rocks at low tide. Please make sure that you adhere to the regulations when fishing and collecting bait, otherwise you might have a very bad encounter the Sea Fisheries inspector.

Best times to fish here is during March through to October when the South-Easterly winds are blowing.
