Due to the lack of Cod reports we decided to have a go at the Plaice in the Selsey area instead.  Had a brilliant day with 23 Plaice between the 2 of us.  All on the drift. Only negative was I didn't bother to wash the worms off to get rid of the peat and put in weed instead.  Took forever to clean up the boat.

The fish averaged just over the pound mark with 5 or 6 between 2 and 2 1/2.  All really good condition though.  Great fishing on the drift with light tackle.

I think we need the water to colour up a lot more before thinking about targeting the Cod.  My 2 early attempts in the Solent have just resulted in Congers, Dogs and Pout.
