Hi guys,oh and hi to fishless, my question is i would like to fish the nab area or cod bank or just further out from culver spit but with these winds being from the north or north west what will the sea state be in with these winds being between 10mph to say 18mph ish lol is it a big no no, i would like to go tuesday and maybe wednesday (i think weds is the better day), i tried going out last thursday but only got halfway to the nab then thought the better of it lol so went back in the solent  (weed weed weed), if its a big no no i will not try and prove you wrong lol i suppose just stick close to the mainland for shelter browndown etc (coming from RYDE), fancy some of them larger whiting oh and bigger cod lol.

Culver might be ok on a run off tide but the tides are getting very big. Much better off Browndown/Gilkicker areas. Less tide and plenty of shelter from a Northerly.
 
Weed can be a pain but generally only lasts an hour or two and does not feature at slack water which is coddy time.
 
Lot less fuel for you to burn as well. Definately my first choice.

i've the same dilema .... Can get out tomorrow, it'll be my last chance for a while. Wind dropping off to f2-3 N before the really cold wind arrives ! I caught so much weed on friday inside the solent (on a smaller tide !) just not sure where to go. The place where I got those 3 cod from a week last monday was only fishable for 1.5 hrs. I thought there would be less tide outside the solent and thought about heading for the nab area. Never fished there so it would be a guess. From Snowys comments I should try Kicker (never fished there either). Decisions ..... decisions !!!

From Ryde you don't have to go far, just over to No-mans-land fort, anchor about 200 yards West and fish the bank. With the Northerly/Easterely fish the Ebbing tide and it should be quite comfortable, depending on your bait will depend on what you catch. There are huge amounts of fish retreating off Ryde sands as the tide goes out and they all tend to congrigate at the bottom of that bank. Waiting to snap some of them up are bigger fish, its worth a try and if the sea gets lumpy you can get in quicker//..
Of all the fishes in the sea, the Mermaid is the one for me.

its quite the norm for the sea to be a bit snotty around bembridge  even in a 3 t4 dont let it put you off  going to culver  just double check ya fcast as soon as ya get  round the  corner  its normaly a lot better  especialy when wind and tide  are in same direction
