i wouldn't risk taking a youngster there mate. sure you know your son and what he can manage clambering over the rocks. but it can be a bit tricky especially some of the steeper places. maybe try the beach (barafundle) with your boy, much safer. not sure if you'll get any mackeral off the beach. some of the rock marks there require a big cast to get past the rough stuff, if your fishing with fish baits you'll get plagued by doggies. good luckWill be travelling to Stackpole 2morrow.
Hopefully looking for any Mackies.
Want to try bottom fishing as well any suggestions?
Is it safe enough to take my 5 yr old?
