    Marc is a pretty well rounded superb fisherman, and has lived and worked and fished all over Africa... he was based in Senegal for a few years, and did a bunch of fishing as you can see from his reports above..

    The last link is about catching Springer/Skippies in front of the Meridien Hotel off the bricks so might be worth a look..

    Gambit - Try get hold of Marc if you can, PM him on Sealine or something, and try get direct info from him.. super nice guy, really helpful, and a superb fisherman, he might be able to give you great direct advice.

    Good luck
