I don't have co-ordinates but sure I can point you in the right direction. If you come out of the old GB harbour run to your right about 1NM in and in line with the blue roof houses at Harmony Park, there is a reef and we caught Hotties and Roman there. If you continue on this track and remain in your 1NM limit past Die Poort and Melkbaai and run towards Macassar for about 7NM you will find reefs there and most times we get Roman there, I suggest you anchor instead of drift as the swell can get very uncomfortable on the drift, if you stomach and vessel can take the unsteadiness you may drift until you find the fish. If you pass Die Poort depending on the time of day, you can try trolling with a deep diver, and you might hook up on a Elf if they are around late afternoon. The co-ordinates are unfortunately on my GPS but will try and send this; somewhere there is a post with all the co-ordinates on this site anyway. Good luck. If you go to the left when you come out of the harbour for about 3-5NM you will get to the old Snoek grounds, the water is very unpleasant here, a bit like Langebaan on a very bad day and you need to be careful.
