The West Cornwall fishing guide will give the reader a good starting point to plan their fishing and complete their research.
Rock Fishing in west Cornwall
Prussia Cove and Cudden Point are good marks at night for mackerel and conger. Penlee Point between Newlyn and Mousehole provides record catches. Between Mousehole and Lamorna, Penzer Point and Carn Du are favourite marks. Penberth Cove, Logan Rock and the rocks below the Minack Theatre are also good marks. Pedn-men-an-mere, Porth Chapel, Porthgwarras and Mill Bay, near Land’s End offer a good sport. The cliffs to the west of St Ives are for the expert only, access to the marks here involve steep climb sometimes with the aid of a rope. Aire Point, Cape Cornwall, Portheras, Clodgy Point and Man’s Head can give good sport. Contact local angling clubs for advice.
