Sea fishing from the rocks near the lighthouse at high-ish water shows garfish Pollack wrasse and occasional mackerel.  Locals recommend float fishing and still loose tackle as its very rough ground. A few people found fishing from beach at night claim Rays and flatfish. Fishing at the seaward end of the Hayle estuary, although plagued with crabs, does show small bass and mackerel and at flood tides a lot of Mullet can be seen and caught with light float gear and bread. There is some talk of sea bream in the estuary but I've never seen any caught.

 

Tackle can be bought at Angove Sports in Hayle and at the Tackle shop in Hayle Market, they have regular deliveries of live ragworm and other baits in the market and frozen baits can be bought in both venues.

FRESHWATER FISHING

Local freshwater venues are scarce, however 'Sharkeys Pit' was reopened recently and is fishing well, its now one of three lakes run by the Marazion angling club in the area, where there are large Carp Tench and Perch as well as many other species for the sport fisherman.
