I stayed there with the wife some time back and monkeys were a terrible problem. They probably still are. The only time that they were not was when we discovered a green mamba right above our tent!
Fishing largely depends on the weather and on tides and sea conditions. I hope you are blessed with the right conditions. You can target fish with a spinner or lure depending on how capable you are. A small kingfish, pompano, etc., will give you a lot of excitement. I would try spinners and lures in area behind the surf line if its an achievable cast. Match the spinner or lure to the size of your tackle. Spinners work better for me as they are normally heavier and thus you get more distance when casting but being heavier they must be retrieved quicker. Remember predator fish like to hide in the white water and hunt for food in the channels next to the white water.
Failing that you can try spinners and lures in gulleys. The beauty of spinners and lures is that you do not need to keep bait refrigerated. Failing that you can try bait. Squid, Sardine and prawn are always a safe choice. Squid is easier to work with and last longer. Sardine and prawn will be off in a moment if there are a lot of small fish about. You need to tie the bait on with elastic cotton (even the squid).
You also get rubber like lures they use in drop shots but that is a style you need to practice. If you are in or near Pretoria you are welcome to pop by and have a chat and I can show you some examples.
