We fish sandbanks mate, anchor uptide and trott your baits down the side of the bank. We catch live launch first and either use live bait or strips of mackerel or launch. Catching them is pretty easy itís finding them thatís the hard bit

Thanks, sounds like a plan...I guess on the banks off Selsey you need to pick pretty small tides as I know the tide for anchoring and weights needed can be brutal.
Is it worth drifting them with the same baits instead?
Reliving my youth...?actually I knew most of the Killers songs because my kids played them ad nauseum

Smaller tides. We anchor it upto about 4.5m

We also drift it, had bass and turbot Sunday on the drift

Ouch, gout can be very painful. I get the occasional attack (usually after too much smoked fish ! ) and Colchicine  fixes it for me. I take a few tablets as soon as I feel it coming on and nip it in the bud. On prescription only.

Well done Dave. Haven't heard of many Spider Crabs around for the last couple of years like there used to be.
Sorry to hear about the gout though. Painful!

Hi Guys Thanks for your concerns, the trigger for me is real ale so will have to stay with the lager. We are getting too much weed in the west solent so will be fishing towards Christchurch bay. Never ever thought I would say this but the heat has forced us off the boat and into the sea. I did manage to catch my first ever turbut but it was the size of a saucer:)
