Does anyone do much spinning or plugging around the Solent? I've got a box full of lures I really want to use but I'm struggling to find a good mark round here.

hi Burt,

i think the obvious choice would be haslar wall, we've had plenty of bass there on lures in the past, as well as pollock, mackeral, scad, and shad.

As Raymond says.

Its too early just yet but late June and July will see Bass shoaling off Haslar wall. The usual very early morning, you need to be there while its still just about dark, or late evening staying into darkness. They are not there all the time so you need to go as often as you can until you and the Bass are there at the same time when this happens you can bag up big time. We've found the smaller wildeye shads and 4-5" silver Toby lures work well.

80-90mm rubber eels for everything else 'tho we have caught Bass on these too

Generally mornings are better than evenings

raymond, im thinking of trying a bit of spinning/plugging for bass and pollock. what spinner or plug would you reccomend. ive seen the dexter wedge. and ive seen rapala lures. also bass poppers etc. would the floating lure or slowly sinking lure be best.

the thing is theres so many to chose from. also in about 5 differant sizes and weights. 5,7,9,11,13cm and 18,28,38,48 grams etc. whats the best size and weight to use at haslar wall old portsmouth.

cheers skillpot

Thanks for the info guys. I've heard of a few bass being taken already (not in the solent though) so I'm gonna keep plugging away and hopefully one will fall to my hooks sooner or later.

The spinning rod lives in the back of my car now so there's no excuse really!

I love spinning and find June/July/August is  best,for Bass you might want to try Redbridge on the incoming tide,  using a mepps Number 2  usually does the trick, and theres always a chance of a surprise there like the mullet I had last year.
