Have a week off next week and hoping for settled weather. I have seen the odd report for Gilthead Bream around the island. Has anyone tried fishing for them specifically? What sort of rigs and bait are best?
I know in Devon they are found around the Tamar estuary, nothing like that round the island. Thought I might try the rock pinnacles inshore around Whitecliff. Any thoughts?
BR,
Johnny

Except trigger fish will bite through a  hook. They have super powers.

Hi They have been regularly caught off the Halland hotel seaview towards high water on lugworm
and the edge of Ryde sands where it drops off rising tide straight out from the harbour (lots of pest small bass)

Best bet for Gilt heads is in the harbours. Look for areas of eel grass that flood near deeper channels. They like the warm shallow water. Fish light line. Hook lengths no heavier than 8lb. Small hooks 8 or 10. Maddies on longish traces with frequent movement.

Gilts like completely different conditions to Blacks. As the man said they like sandy places which are fairly shallow and I have nearly always had them after dark with worm - lug will do. They are generally larger than blacks which means that a couple of them will usually make a nice dinner. I have had them as late as October if the weather stays warm, try around sandbanks which they often frequent when we have a warm summer. Size 2 hooks should be good.
