Hi, try the brambles, in front of the tugs at the esso iol refinery, but go careful there and dont get too close, esso dont like it.

The best place for mackerel by far is around the forts.

 

Don't be too disheartened, its been a hard week for them all round the shoals are breaking up and getting thin on the ground.

 

Saying that i had quite a few yesterday out deep. But thats not been the norm for the week.

I'm sure it will improve again soon.

Haslar sea wall and gilkicker were producing a lot in the evenings from the shore until last week

Hi Russ

we are having the same problems finding macker for the BBQ

we have been out 4 times in the last 2 weeks in 4 different areas and it has been hit and miss, most we have had is 15, that was trailing some feathers behind amy friends yacht on way back from cowes !

we want to take the kids out and need a place where we know they are going to catch and not too far to travel from hamble but can travel and have done, did stokes bay - forts but had the tide on the way out, only had 8

we want the kids to have a few and get 'hooked' like the dads !

thanks to all on the forum, it is great to find like minded people, information and you guys are all so helpful

Russ, I've found that I can always manage a couple of macks by using just plain white feathers, for some reason when they are a bit scarce they can't resist a feather, saying that the water was boiling with them a couple of weeks back around the forts.

had plenty around hill head on saterday, sconce bouy is a good bet on the flood, south brambles bouy is pritty good as is NE gurnard and by now thay should be right up southampton water, as said above some times thay are feeding on other things so different feathers can make the difference, i like the baby hokies when times are hard,

good luck
