bobs hollow?

Hi All

I was thinking of doing a fishing trip down south in a few weeks to a place called bob's hollow south of margs and am after some more info on the place.  I looked on google earth and there seems to be a track in.  What species would i expect to come across there and is the area dangerous to fish with regard to swell.  i also heard it is a bit of a hike

 I remember having a look

 I remember having a look at the cave there about 15+ years ago , having been down all the tracks between the cape's . It was rather nasty that track , high clearance a must as there were some beauty diff crackers stickin up . took my time getting to the coast (in a 4x4) only to find 2 vw combi's there!!!

Nice spot , dont think there is much protection from the s/w and mostly beach fishing from what i remember . The rocks at contos put you into some deeper water but you would be walking a fair way on one of the softest beaches we have (IMO)

many years since my last visit,track full of limestone cap-rock but also found VW beetle  in parking area.There are 2 large round rocks you can access straight out from parking area but check the swell first,though i remember a reef running out across the front but a long way out.Water seemed to drop pretty quick from the rocks though  we caught mainly herring and gardies.Looked very fishy though

Pretty dangerous rocks straight out from the carpark. They have got harness attachments for the safety minded. Drops off very quickly in front and there is a very large reef patch not far out in front. Berley up and you never know what you might bring in. I do a bit of mountain biking through there and last few times massive salmon schools went through (easter) but no rod. Spewin. Would love to have a night fish out there.

good to hear there are hooks for tying off, i might be fishing by myself so would use them.  although i could fish a beach if the swell is too big. i have a more than capable 4wd so the track should be no problem

thanks for the info
