nice wreck just off calshot if you launch from calshot. failing that go around southampton water up against the dock walls loads of big bass. flatties at weston shore. sole over hythe waste ground. sport all over the place in a boat from southampton if you launching from under the itchen bridge.

ps gazza is also right theres a wreck just off the end of calshot spit. a old flying boat i think it is. have had some good fish from there. theres a big deep hole there
