Rogue waves sometimes come sweeping in, so avoid standing on ledges
with no easy retreat, and keep an eye on the swell. The rocks are often precarious, and a fall in these remote parts isn’t good, so good,
grippy wellies or hiking boots are the order of the day. It’s best to know your limits and stick to them. Pollack have a bit of a wrist on the tail and if you’re wearing gloves you can ‘lip’ pollock as you would a bass, but don’t try lipping
a wrasse as they’ve got teeth designed for chomping through crab shells and can make light work of a finger!
