Don't know about Selsey/Pagham, but my brother had a hound about 7lb on Monday on crab at his local W Sussex beach......and that was in the daytime.

Bass will go for cuttle - always heard that it is a good bait around the Round Tower area of Portsmouth Harbour entrance! Mind, they may be a bit preoccupied with peelers just at the moment....... ;)

All this smutty talk is very exciting! If I didn't have other plans that I can't change now for both Friday and Saturday nights (brother's 50th party being one), I might well have made a trek down myself to Sandy Point...

That's a huge shore-caught turbot! I had them at Sandown to around 2lb last year and thought I had done pretty well! Also good to know that the mackerel and gars are properly in - just planning my session for Saturday now......

Well done - good report.

Nice one FF - very comprehensive and making me feel nostalgic for the fishing round that area that I enjoyed as a teenager!

Showman I'd give the Portsmouth harbour entrance near the Round Tower a go on the float and I'd expect pollack and maybe bass as well as any mackerel etc that might be in the area. South Parade Pier would be another option, as would Clarence Pier (assuming you can still fish off there?). Used to get...

I fish Shoreham on the float a lot - in the estuary itself by the Coastwatch tower with live prawns for bass on the rising tide, and then on the western harbour arm lower section with half sandeel or mackerel strip for mackerel, garfish and occasional twaite shad. You need a sliding float rig for th...

I've been told that the Chichester Harbour entrance inland from Sandy Point can be good over low for smoothies and black bream but it's better fished early or late (to avoid jet-ski etc annoyance etc.). As Eccles says, once that tide starts to push it becomes hard if not impossible to fish particula...

Don't know Herne Bay but would imagine that the groynes at Whitstable will produce some school bass (or maybe something bigger) to worm baits by the time Easter is here. It's often a good ploy to aim for just past the end of the groyne as the tide rises as there is often a depression/pool at the gro...

Sandwich Bay later this month (when the water warms up a little) will be worth a try for early thornies. You want a night tide, though....

Dabhand Thanks for the Walmer tip - will give it a look before too long. The bloke fishing next to me was saying that it's also pretty good for a variety of species at Deal Pier so I may also give that a try. Don't know many other places where cuckoo wrasse (according to him at least) are a possibil...

I'll give it another go later in the year - heard from passing loons (they must have been to be out in that weather!) that there are a load of dogs in the summer plus pollack etc. Got to be worth another go.

Cheers

2nd trip of the year - POW Pier Dover 26/2

Despite the rubbish weather forecast, I wasn't going to miss out so set off for the 80 mile drive to Dover at 7:30. The nearer I got to my destination, the worse the weather got until I was almost driving blind through fog and spray from the torrential rain. There are times when you doubt your sanit...

Cuckoo Nah - now you're just being silly....... Assuming it stays open, I will defo get across to TQ later in the year to try a live pout down the side for one of those! Next target a thornie from Sandwich Bay or Sheppey next month and a plaice from Langney Point (or Eastney, or Hayling etc)... Kev
