Several areas for gilt heads.

North of Rookwood buoy. Port post of goal posts in Thorney channel (also for smoothies). Near entrance of Snowhill creek.

Smoothound. I tend to fish along starboard side of harbour between Elanore & Rookwood buoys. Find the weed bed & fish on 9ft (low water) up to 15ft high water. Main issue is Itchenor Sailing Club who race along there & have no respect for anchored boats.

Fish rag with no squid.

Also - spots down in the moorings in Itchenor reach. Gilt heads are better fighters than black bream.

Biggest smoothie was 16lb in 12ft at Rookwood on light spinning rod in 2011.

I tend to go for evenings or early morning when no boat/ sailing traffic.

Sounds like you had all the fish whitewash.everytime we reeled in the mackerel bait all that was left was the head. I tried every bait and rig with 4 rods out.very frustrating. Hopefully next time. Good luck anyone out tomorrow.
oh well, there is always next weekend!!

V hot yesterday, 5 species but nothing big nor the target I wanted!
Mackerel, scad, gurnard, plaice and a ray...
Drank litres of water.
TBH it was a bit slow on the action.
Thanks for your advice Ahab, Whitewash & Skillpot.
Have a good week.

Trolling just outside the weed bank, over Pilsey sands(high water) & other locations is great sport. Have a little black -Max 2" - sandeel as a teaser 18" above the plug or spinner.1.5 to 2,.5 knots. bass & mackerel
