John, 4/5 north easterlies against the tide most of the day will make it unpleasant anywhere 'outside' of the Solent. You will probably be better off in the Browndown/Stokes Bay areas, just follow the crowds.

Fished Browndown/Stokes bay area 2nd January for pout, whiting and dogs BUT the boat right next to us had three cod to 24lb (lost four others) and a 7lb bass. Closest we came was yours truly dropping a cod.

John, the boats out there should be on channel 10.
 
Mitch, I am out tomorrow.  So far as radar reflectors are concerned the only one I would bother with is Echomax. they are expensive but they do work. They reckon it pumps out 80 times more reflective area than the aluminium tubes.
 
I can tell you from a close encounter in the harbour that those alumium tubes dont work!!! particularly when the area is cluttered.

Is channel 10 not used for port operations?
 
My memory may be a bit hazy on this but I remember a call from port-ops asking a channel-10 user to keep off their frequency. This may have come from somewhere west of Southampton though.  Not necessarily in the Portsmouth area.

Hi Terry, at the eastern end of the island channel 11 is port ops and 10 is the commercial channel used by the angling boats and trawlers alike. I think the western end use 12 for their 'fishing' channel.
