Hello Everyone,
Due to a Change in my marital status last year I'm now living in Gosport! Things have settled down and I can look at going fishing again for the first time in months! Also need to finish off the work on the boat so i can get that out later in the year but that is another story!

 Seen as Gilkicker point is reasonably close by i was going to give it a go Saturday, looking at it on Google earth has me wondering where do you park? I have a dodgy knee so will need to plan accordingly if its going to be a long walk on shingle!! Never Fished Gosport side, was wondering what baits you guys would recommend, targeting anything that is there really but a fat cod would be niceBig smile!! Also not sure if its aloud (maybe PM) but could you point me in the direction of a reputable (good) tackle shop in the Gosport area for bait etc! 

Many thanks,
Chris Finch

Not sure if you can go down or park in military road so I think there's only two parking options. Monckton and GAFIRS both will require a walk, but Monckton (Submariners museum) is slightly closer.

I would fish two rods. One long range with lug. rag or small strips of cuttle or squid or a combination and with the other I would be lobbing out a large squid/cuttle cocktail in the hope of a larger Cod. Obviously fishing during darkness will increase your chances of a successful session.

Let us know how you get on.

Park on fort road and then walk through the golf course, most of the walk will be on road instead of shingle.

Agree with Ray on where to park.  As for tackle and bait, I always used to go to Dave's Tackle - http://www.davestackle.co.uk/

Thanks for the advice guys!
I got my bait from Dave's tackle, they where very helpful and friendly!

 I parked round the corner from Merlins (i think) care home, and walked through the golf course. I was going to park on the grass verge but have been warned of a few people getting tickets there! 

I spent 11 hours down there today, and only caught one whitting during the day, but as night started to fall I had a schoolie bass, small pollack, whiting (Loads), pouting (5-6) and a poor cod but no real cod! 

Had 2 snap off's (on a fixed spool of all things!!! first proper fishing session with my multi and thought it would have been that that played up!) and got snagged twice and lost the lot. Expensive day! But all in all a very enjoyable day!

Thanks again for the advice!
