Fish the platform close in with ragworm for wrasse. The tide run is pretty strong as with all headlands. 8oz gripper on a big tide. Clean ground from 50yrds out.
How did you go about getting your pass to drive down there?? Pm me if preffered

Hi,

Berryhead is a OK fishing place if you just want to be catching Mackerel. You can catch Mackerel anywhere along the head and you don't need to cast too far.
You can catch some Pollock but they tend not to be very big. If you what to catch Pollock go right down to the bottom ledge. Berryhead was the first place i went
fishing and i liked it down there but now i have got into fishing i just find it boring and i would say it would be a waste of time unless you what to catch Mackerel. At
the moment there is a few Mackerel being caught and some small Pollock. It is not as good as it use to be down there when we first started fishing there.
Good luck if you do try down there and let me know how you get on.

All the best

Dan:victory:

went down 3 days ago and caught 3 macky on the feathers but it was low tide and quite rough but nice place just to sit and watch the sea my problem is I cant walk very far with lot of tackle so it does suit me there as I can driver more or less right next to the edge :)

I'm guessing that Berry Head would be a good spot for huss after dark...?
Stick a chunky (but not TOO chunky) mackerel, bluey or squid bait in the rough stuff, using a rotten bottom.

Lol! I know there's quite a few huss spots in south Devon, but it's not my area so can't advise further, sorry!
I recall seeing on another forum a report of huss being caught from concrete walkway/railings overlooking a beach, but beggared if I can recall where that was!
