Port Mansfield Jetty_60 mile beach drive

Anyone ever make the drive down the 60 mile stretch of beach to Port Mansfield Jetty? Looking to spear the Jetty In late June or July. We have a 4wd truck but standard all weather tred...wanting to know the conditions of the path... good, bad, ugly..There enoughf hard pack to not get stuck? Anyone who has done this, perspective appreciated. thanks

That sounds like fun!

I see tracks and a truck or two on satellite images, so I assume it's doable. Probably best to roll in a convoy though. If I had 4x4 right now I'd consider a road trip down there!

I have, there’s good snapper “other” and loads of unspooked fish! It’s not an easy run! Bring extra food, water, gas! Lots of shark fisherman it a long drive of vis sucks so you have that to also deal with. Bring rods Incase that happens you can atleast fish.

Thanks alot...ya got that right on all of the above. Hopefully we time it with the weather and wind tools. Using magic seaweed.com and windy.com to look for windows. Last resort is I pay a captain who has agreed to take us for a small fee. If its bad, mabye spi jetty is better.

Yea, it's a trek. Youtube videos with others who have done it. If timed right, it could be worth it.
