hi chaps,. looking to book a boat trip after some good size bream, i know you tend to get the better ones before the big numbers turn up. in advance obvoiusly for booking reasons, when would the best time? late april/ early may? what tides am I looking for?
 
the reason for asking being that i have been seen off in the past, booking a charter on the skippers recomend only to be told on the day by the same guy, that we were out after the then intended tope on the wrong tides..
 
the norm bream ground the charter fishes is off bracklesham area..
 
any help greatly appreciated!

Marv, dont fully agree that Bracklesham is 'the' place to go. It does have a good run of fish but Boulder Bank is better and Bullocks Patch is consistent. We also had some very good fish from a mark in Sandown Bay last year which was a relief as it can be fished in a strong westerly wind whereas the others cant. We had strong westerlies nearly all the time.
 
Most skippers I know, me included, will take you bream fishing if that is what you want to do. But do accept advise if your chosen species is not around on the day you go.
 
You have correctly identified the better months and although more fish can be caught later in the year the size does tend to suffer. 
 
The tide depends on the mark. Boulder and Bullock are better on the smaller tides (sub 4.4), as holding bottom can be an issue, but Bracklesham and Sandown can be fished in any.

Hi
Snowy's 100% right these areas do fish better early for the larger fish, and it might be worth booking a trip with one of Lymington Boats to fish Christchurch ledge last year i had reports that it was fishing really well for large fish and in numbers also chance to hit a decent Bass out as well

If you haven't tried it before, in water under 50' .... Boulder's slope is 35 - 45', try a float.

Remarkable results, especially at slack water when you can 'groundbait' them to yer gear ....

sorta chub fishing with a difference ....  Wink









Yeh, well .... end of ....
