The Helderberg coast line has many good fishing spots for rock and surf as well as deep sea anglers.

Rock and Surf anglers are productive mainly at night along the Strand Beach as fishing is not allowed during the day. Anglers target Kob, White Steenbas, Sharks, Zebra and in season Shad (Elf) during the evenings.

Heading towards Koelbay along the rocks you will spot many anglers targeting Galoen in season and other species that are active during the day.

Boaters are spoilt and can head out behind the surf and to the reefs spread out over false bay. Boat anglers catch a wide variety of fish and mainly target Geelbek, Kob, Yellow Tail and Snoek in season.

Deep Sea Anglers, head out from Gordon's Bay to around 40 miles from Cape Point where they target Yellow Fin Tuna, Long Fin Tuna and there has been a few Black Marlin hooked while targeting tuna.

There are many tackle shops in the basin where you will find all sorts of information about the local spots, charters and etc.
