Hi Daz,
Hope this info is not to late I always caught from these three areas
On the righthand side of Ilfracombe harbour there is a small car park from this you can walk over to the rock ledges Bass, Pollock, Conger and wrasse can be caught.
Croyde end of woolacombe beach I used to fish opposite a white cottage for rays 2down 4up seemed to be best time sand eel or mackerel .
Bit further round is Baggy point with rock ledges Bass, Pollock, Conger and wrasse baits and lures depending on species for all areas.
Take a look on google earth
tight lines
Joe

Thanks for the marks Joe but sadly weather was a total wash out all week best weather was on the way home.The coastline stunning and was so annoying I could not wet a line, never mind the pubs were great but cost alot more than fishing.
