There I was today lenat on the barrier surrounding the lagoon at Gunwharf eating a New Forest double ice cream in a sugar cone (Rum and raisin with caramel crunch).

With a couple of mates we were watching the big bass swimming underneath us. 

Being a generous soul I broke off the bottom of my cone intending to feed it to the fish. Unfortunately I let go of the wrong bit and the whole thing fell in whereupon a huge bass hit it like a train and swallowed the whole thing in one gulp!!

That'll be the raisins then Andy...

Secret bait for big bass...

We should keep it quiet though lest everyone starts using raisins..

They Pompey bass will eat anything, apparently they are used to getting stuff dropped overboard from the ferries. Know a bloke who uses chicken skin to get them in the harbour.

My lad caught an eight pounder just outside the harbour and when we gutted it there was a whole cooked chicken drumstick in it's stomach. Evidently they feed on the left overs that get thrown over the side from functions on the Forts.

Al and I were fishing last year when we saw an empty chinese food container floating on the surface. It was flat calm and the container was getting attacked from underneath by a fish!
