Browndown wrecks are worth a go, loaded with pout so you migh find a nice bass, also th Luciston, Algerian and Margaret Smith in the western solent. The first two are dangerous to fish as one is righ on the edge of the channel near Bourne Gap bouy, the second one is in the channel near east lepe bouy so you will have to go really carefull. the third is between Newtown creek and Yarmouth. The tide runs hard but there are congers on it. I will put some numbers on here for you when I get time!!!

not sure about wrecks best to seach uk dive clubs they have some good info on wrecks but try clicking on the boat icon at the top of the home page on this web site  then click on western marks may not be wrecks but are some good places to fish

the Luciston near bourn gape can be a good spot for bass , drift in coming tide  with live pout, but as said above be carful and keep engine running at all times, as the  red funnel ,gin palaces and dildo yachts  will cut you down.

the wreck of yarmouth does chuck up some nice bream too and again live pout for the bass

never had much on the leap wrecks bar a couple of small pollock the wrecks are ment to be a peir of scuttled landing craft about 100yrd apart, but plenty of top notch banks near by for rays and smuts.

brown down is great for a pout bash and some nice bass at the right time of year, but agian the are better marks near by on the banks.

if you can id head out to deeper water if you fancy some fun with snakes and better sized pollock

cheers john

Go online and try Amazon and try to get a book called "Dive Wight". There is heaps of info in there and you can get a bit more personal with the wreck you are fishing on, it becomes a bit more than a place to fish. Some more books you might find interesting are Solent Hazards and Wight Hazards. These two books are real eye openers and will install a great deal of respect I hope for the waters we travel and fish.
