boat or from the pier? you cannot fish from the pier, years ago you could but sadly no longer, if you are fishing from a boat around the area its good for founder and bass and some macks on summer eves,
if you have to measure it, its too small!!

Anchor up and drop back towards the pier right at the end where the ferry that's not in use is moored on the ebb, cast a ball of raggies or small squid bait under the moored ferry or towards the piles and you will have a good chance of a decent bass, you have to be quick though as if they get anywhere near those piles you wont be seeing that bass, or your tackle again.
There is always bass in this area and the ebb seems to be when they are most actively feeding, i have had them on lures cast close to the structures but there are loads of schoolies to contend with too.
Its getting a bit late now buy i was catching loads of good mackerel in that general area a couple of months back

also to remember that most  of soton water from the esso at fawley across to the other side by the hamble is a bass nursery area from may  until Nov so would not be wise to target them with lures if caught could lead to confiscation of gear, boat included,  but outside the nursery time you can still manage some good ones, 
if you have to measure it, its too small!!

As i said before, a big juicy ragworm bait is the way forward, or small squid bait if you get fed up with the schoolies, you will be playing a waiting game with the squid mind, ive never caught a thing on mackerel in soton water, different story once you get down to calshot mind.
