Try just north of the shipping channel, west of Dean tail. I had plenty there Sunday. Others were catching off Bembridge. Use small feathers if you can, they are chasing very small fish at this time of year.

I had some drifting round a Bembridge Ledge on Sunday. Didn't seem to be big shoals as not much evident on the fish finder.
Good luck,

Out yesterday (Tuesday)with Charter. Loads & loads of Mackerel but smaller than a week or so ago.Had to stop as too many. Had plenty of smoothies & several rays of various types. lots of small tope getting in onto the baits meant for bigger relations.4 good runs all ended in lost fish early on. Nab area. Water was very clear everywhere.
