Mullet fishing in Pompey Harbour

After watching loads of good sized mullet and getting them to feed at a different mark in the same creak, I gave it ago Friday after work. Usual setup; light waggler rod, 6lb line using bread on a size 8 hook. I saw several large wise old mullet carefully avoid my hook bait while eating my ground ba...

A thick lip in Gosport and a new PB!

Due to back problems I don't go fishing as much as I'd like. So I decided to scale down on the tackle and give mullet a go, which by the way I am a complete newbie at. I had a week off work and decided to start my foray into mullet fishing on the Thursday before my week off. My chosen venue was a cr...

I get more from the local beaches these days, although not in numbers and no bigger than about 1lb. How about HillHead Shanty Town? Although I have not been there recently. My favourite spot was near the start of the cliffs. If you look carefully you will see a part that never dries out. A good cast...

Hi Metalmark, 4lb 2oz from Easteny about 15 years ago & 3lb 4oz from Chilling. By the way, Chilling has been my most productive Hampshire Plaice mark for 2lb + Plaice overy the last 20 odd years and they have not been far out.

Hi Mark, Magazine lane (Marchwood) is easy to fish but you need to reel in fast to avoid the snags. There should be sole, dogs, small hounds and pout there. For Hounds, as already mentioned Warsash (Cowes Lane) can fish well with the added bonus that it generally doesn't get crowed with other angler...

Solent Hounds

Decided to go fishing yesterday day at about 4.30. The wind was a lot stronger than I thought it would be. I caught the first of 6 x fish; a Hound at 14lb very first cast. During the next 3 hours I had a further 3 x Hounds that I didn't weigh because they looked slightly smaller but still a good 8lb...

Lee Tuesday night

All fish were caught on a big Peeler bait. I am not sure if I caught once the wind dropped slightly because...

Stokes Bay

Went looking for a Spotted Ray on the 2nd, unfortunately at least 3 other clubs had beaten me to Gillkicker. I decided to fish Stokes Bay near the AlverBank. Bait was Sandeel, the pin whiting was preventing me from using Bluey; they hammered it as soon as it hit the water. I ended up with 1 dogfish ...
