Hi,
   hoping to go out tomorrow, anyone got any suggestions where to head? It's a 4.0m tide so I did wonder about the overfalls, but then I wondered about the Selsey banks... hmm....

Regards
Sean

Fished Whisky Bank last Sunday and it was dire, one ballan wrasse and a bream. First time I have fished it though.
 
It was on the flood anchored in about 30' and dropping the baits back to the bottom of the bank. Very steep bank, only about 8' of water on the top. Suprised at how snaggy it was, not at all sure it was the right bit of the bank.
 
Any ideas?

i was down there same time saw you what you were doing ist time drifting near where searcher was  was bang on   i had 4 1keeper  it was slow  but i was on my own rig matters there as well i have been told to make up portland rig 18 ins long  12ins trace green black beads  the trick is to use a heavy weight and smash the ground mussels with the weight the best part of tide is 1 hour off slack the best i had this year was 4pound 8 oz

Terry on Searcher did well, he had five fish on one drift although he did say it was slow. He also had an 8lb cod which is the fourth one I have heard of in the past week. The others were a codling and a 6lber and one caught on Bullocks.
 
That area is a bit of ground just north of the actual Whisky Bank. I am told the bank itself, where I anchored, is a known mark for bass, brill and turbot but not for me that day! It also seems a bit rough for the brill/turbot?
 
Thanks for the tips.

At Medmerry bank, very choppy! slack water at the moment, not a lot of action.

Bit rough on the way out so decided not to try Whisky banks but stop short at the Medmerry.....
