keep fishing the white light and you'll get your conga. I suggest you use half a mackrel whipped on with bait elastic cast out and leave for an hour at a time. Running ledger or pulley rig will work best you can catch them at close and far ranges but try and cast out as far as you can to avoid the rocks, don't fish to close to the end its too snaggy.

should i go at night? i hear thats supposed to be better. and speaking to my grand dad earlier he said fish like right next to the rocks or with a rotten bottom rig in them on the white light because congers go threw them or something is this true?

Hi there .ive had them on the r/h side on the end of friars and if you go to the pebbles l/h side , down the first steps so u are about 30 yds away from the rock on your left .thats can be good .go in the nite with someone ,running ledger 8/0 o shornisy hook to 150/175 lb bs cut 3/4 of a macky tail end and elasticate it on .cast as best as you can ..not too far .Give time for the bite to develop when conga backs off just tighten op till solid then wait for the fireworks . watch your pinkies ..watch the toothy end if in dought, trim the hook near as u can and pop it back .good luc
