I'll be out too, either at the Blocks or in Hayling Bay.  Channel 10, Millster

I will be out to.  Probably Blocks or Hayling but may gamble for an early Bream.  Decisions, decisions.

Had a dozen plaice which were very thin for size( were last resort as do not fish for them normally until Jul) & had 4 bream to 3lb today before resorted to the plaice as went dead. Also lots of dogs. I am sure the bream were there in larger numbers but were not feeding.
Tried for smoothies with no luck.

You did very well. A lot of people were struggling. I only had dogfish pout and one smoothhound in three hours.

I fished the Blocks today, should have tried for the Bream!  Got there about 1000 ran out of bait by 1330.  Only 2 Plaice worth keeping but a steady stream of baby smoothounds and shoal bass depleted the bait at an alarming rate.  Only used 2 rods with 2 hooks on each and blitzed a 1lb of rag and 30 black lug.  Still a nice trip out in the sun though.  As i got back early I took the wife and youngest for a boat trip in the afternoon.

I gave 6 hours to Hill Head Groynes and had about 700 6" pouting.  Tried drifting with a modern 2 hook spoon arrangement (courtesy of Poindestres) baited with frozen black lug tipped with squiddly diddly. The pouting went wild for it. Also tried 5 or 6 spots anchored hard. More pout. Fished depths between 3 and 5 metres.

Now I know where to go to catch live bait for Cod/Bass.

Maybe all the plaice are just all hoovered up. It is very close to home for a couple of local trawlers. One shares Hythe marina with me although he seems rigged to catch Plaice food (shellfish) rather than the fish itself. No wonder fish are fading away in the area.

PS I called on channel 10 on the hour a couple of times but I think everyone was well out of range (4 miles).
Possibilities. Bayliner 2452 as per the avatar. Listening CH10 on the hour. Solent UK.

No repeat for me on same same marks - no bream - no plaice although the little Thornback I caught was the size of one!

Could not get on the exact spot for bream as nets & pots all around.
Not out now for a couple of weeks.

The water is very coloured at the moment which is bad for both Plaice and Bream even if they were there.  Perfect for all the other stuff though.  When, and if the water clears the small stuff will disappear during daylight in the shallow water.  Not sure if the colour is left from the blows last week plus the dredging aided by big tides or an early Maywater bloom.  Could be a mixture of both.

Went out on the kayak and drifted Seaview to Priory Bay. Not fish, but caught a rock!
Nice paddle, beautiful weather.
Boat has problems with bearings so couple more weeks until back in.
