I thought I'd go on a plaice hunt  tomorrow. I don't wander far from Hythe so I thought that I'd have a look around Hill Head and Calshot. Maybe a little drift over any broken ground that I can find. Anyone think I am wasting my bait? or can someone point me to a better location in the area.

NB If it didn't cost £100 in fuel I'd truck up to the blocks or Selsey but it just ain't worth it for a few hours fishing.

Thanks in advance.

Howdy,

Stokes Bay isn't too far. It is probably just inside my tight-arse range.

Not sure that I can get worms tomorrow. I have loadsa nice squid. Now that Bells has gone live bait is becoming a problem. I think the new shop in Hythe is closing down. Well, they had a sale on a few weeks back. I hope it wasn't a closing down sale.

Terry

Terry, this year, and last, it was black lug that did the damage, had sixteen in the last two trips and only one on rag. I think it is because the water is so dirty they are hunting by scent not sight. All of them came at anchor.

There is a group of small banks close in and a little east of the Heal head groin. Good
spot later on for place and sole, might be worth a go now at anchor on the top of the tide

Fabulous. I'll give those ideas a whizz.

I got blown off the water yesterday. It was that SSW wind ripping along the Solent. I tried Hamble Spit. Loadsa stuff on the sounder (really loads) bit not a bite.

Latest problemo is that I can't easily get live-bait. It seems that the nearest bait for me (I drive from Basingstoke) is Nobles near Calshot. Bells and Halibut both closed down.

Pongos at the bottom of the m271 would be ideal for your bait on the way through I would have thought. Not bought worms there myself but very close to your driving route

Try getting it delivered to your home form Baits r us. I have always found the service v good. Costs a bit but on top of everything else we spend....and you certainly need good bait.

Try frozen black lug tipped with squid. Just as good as live. Also a lot of fish now caught on Isomes worms like these http://amzn.to/2obwjRa just keep them moving
