Where abouts were you thinking of fishing, i've only fished pompey side before at the harbour mouth about a week ago at high tide in the morning.
Didn't have much luck, just a few wrasse.
Long range baits were coming back untouched.

The tide runs very hard during springs in the harbour. I'm reliably informed that fishing is next to impossible except on the turn.

Forget the harbour entrance - spring tide will mean current too fast to allow a decent session. Better to try along the front somewhere although HW is not until 12.30 so you will have to do a late night session. Start at around 10 pm and go through to 2 am if you can do it. Should find the odd smut and maybe a decent bass. The old favourites are Eastoke, the Funfair and Inn on the Beach. Weed should not be too bad as the N.E. winds will have blown a lot of it out to sea.

No, 50 - 70 yds will do, the smuts and bass come in close once it starts to get dark. Squid will get the smuts, mackie strip or worm for the bass.

Squid will land the bass too, had a four pounder on it the other night over at hayling, i guess it's not too far off cuttle which most will be feeding on a lot atm. (ps, squid is my bait of the month, haha)
