This is an open spot in Mandaue along the Mactan Channel.
Spacious area that is open to fishing
Parking for cars
Somewhat secluded and not crowded with people
Good potential for fish
The area often smells like sewage due to a nearby canal
No lighting at night and far from the main road, so potentially not safe at night
Occasionally trucks pass by on the dirt road and kick up dust
Some garbage in the water
No stores nearby to buy food or drinks
Not easily accessible without a car.
This is a stretch of the port area that is open for fishing. Like much of the Cebu port area it has its problems. Things that make fishing here less than exceptional are the smell (sewage) and the garbage that is often seen floating in the water. Besides those two things this area is not bad. There is a lot of space to fish and so there is no problem of having too many people around. If any the problem would be having too few people around.
This area is a pier area that sits on reclaimed land, so the water is deeper that the typical Cebu shoreline. Best to try live shrimp or minnows here or cut bait. I have not been able to fish this spot yet, but have heard that it is productive.
Expect the usual predators like; trevally, grouper, barracuda, eels, emperors, pacific tarpon, and more.
( 5/10 ) This is far from a great spot, however it is a quiet place that would make a great morning spot.
Bring sun protection; the sun is unforgiving and there is no shade here
Avoid this spot after dark; it is secluded and not well lit. (unless there is a group of you)
Bring drinks and snacks
One of you has to leave an ID with the guard at the gate by the road
Send us pics of what you catch here!
