The forecast seems to suggest it will be >F5 winds in the foreseable future. Are there any quitet places around Portsmouth Harbour where there is some shelter to be able to fish from a boat?

Not sure it's going to nice anywhere with winds greater than F5. I would keep your powder dry myself...
Good luck if you give it a go.

Whatever the direction of the wind get in the lee of the land. I have fished perfectly comfortably off Stokes bay in a northerly seven. It is the direction that is more important than the speed. Also bear in mind you have to get there and back.

 i think the only place i know of would be round by the motorway bridge by the scrap yard, you may catch a few there, incuding flounders...
If its Piss...down go under the bride and keep dry..
i use to fish there all the time years ago, but what its like now i dont know..

Good Luck

Go up Portchester Creek, past Tipner ranges and turn right and it is the bridges under the M275.

We use fish from low water upwards. Get crabs from under rocks and fish straight away. Caught more at low than any other time.
