As Salar says had them in both those places. Tides are favourable too as not too big.
Good luck.
I am going to go out Saturday myself although just seen itís the round the island race. Donít think they will be moving very fast!

Total tosh on the tope I'm afraid.fished pullar bouy area and nothing but doggies.handful of mackerel there.on way home stopped at gilkicker and blanked again.so so quiet out there.charters were on medmerry bank. Worst of all left my drinks in freezer at home!! What a dipstick. Licking ham sandwich all day

It was a tough day yesterday for us. Highlights were a 15-30lb tope, a really good wrasse, a decent edible crab and mackerel (found them at Boulder and Outside Chichester entrance). Also had smooth hound, strap conger and doggies.

Didnít try Pullar in the end, so much for my plan!

South Pullar - 2 days of Charters: 5 Tope on Wednesday & 7 on Friday. Only took on fresh mackerel.All the big ones that were hooked were lost but all the crews were inexperienced but now a little wiser. Great fun.

Also had Undulates, thornbacks, smoothound & conger plus loads of dog fish. mackerel bait at anchor.
Utopia (2 hours) has not been good apart from 2 enormous Spider Crabs , 15lb Undulate and a 30lb Conger.
Hard grounds had a lots of silk weed on bottom covering the hooks etc. Other areas seem to have loads of whelks covering the baits. Smoothie fishing has not been as good as a week or so ago.
On own boat have had great sport in Chi harbour, when can avoid the weed & racing yachties, with quality smoothound, gilt heads, some big gurnards and usual little bass to 3lb(all fish go back).

Sounds good. Where is good to fish in CHi harbour? Never fished there but would lie to catch a Gilthead.
