I personally fish the right side of the beach next to the carpark. I don't seem to lose as much gear there.
Make sure you have a good leader before your trace as the stones move about alot and can cut your line.
I only fish two hours before and after high tide as well. But that's just personal preference. Good luck and i'm looking forward to yer report

You are fishing the top half of a small rising tide during daylight and dusk. Unless there is an Easterly you will have your work cut out wherever you go! If there is no real wind try the kelp beds at the South end. Best of luck anyway and let us know how you got on.Been going fishing for 50 years now, and never had a bad day yet!

Have had most success to the left in front of the caravan site, can reach the kelp bed here so yes tackle losses can be high, the fish however are more numerous and tend to be larger.Everyone who fishes there has their own favourite spot though.

I've not fished the beach myself but I've heard good reports from the lads at work who fish just in front of the car park; the only thing they recommend is use rotten bottom tackle.

I usually fish the south end of the beach as close to the reef as possible. With SW winds it may be your best chance of a fish but I think you may be scratching in a calm sea with the colour dropping out of it. Welcome to the site and tight lines.If you ain't loosing lead, you ain't fishin !

Bervie has only ever produced for me during or right after a solid onshore blow, doesn't have to be easterly, SE or SSE winds are more common but still kick up the surf. You want the breakers to be at least 4-6 foot tall and full of weed, and the water to be brown. Forget using a shockleader, weed will build up on the knot and drag your griplead out in a matter of minutes, and you will find yourself hauling in a ton of kelp.
Distance casting is not an issue, a 40 yard lob will put you over fish if the conditions are right. The middle of the beach is where the surf is biggest but it's the left and right hand ends of the beach which fish best.
This goes without saying but do watch yourself on the shingle when the sea is big, and a spare pair of socks is a godsend at the end of a session
