A gun 70-90. The surgery that Andrea mentioned, about 4k.

If you came back with a couple of 10 pound plus bass and some nice pollock or mullet then you might raise an eyebrow at the weigh in. There are some very good fisherman at Southsea and Sussex clubs.

Tim, try http://www.spearo.co.uk/. Dave's site has some hints and tips and I'd give him a call to chat about what you want to do as there's some obvious pit falls to spearfishing

Cheers

Cheers. Yeah Wrasse are crap and a 10lb Bass is a rare beast around rocks during the day. Mullet are game sport in open water, not great eating though. Contrary to popular belief, Pollack are good eating. The trick is to keep them in the fridge for 2/3 days before eating. Trust me, I used to own a fish business.

There's some nice flat fish and ray fishing at Bognor. A few ( 15+ ) years ago at the Bognor comp one of the guys caught a thorn-back ray which them wrapped its tail around him. He managed to get back to the shore before the swelling started.

Also a mate and I were fishing down in Devon ( can't remember where ) and he caught a trigger fish, which we'd never seem before. He had his fish keep on his weight belt. The trigger fish bit through his wet suit and bit him on the arse

This game sounds a bit dangerous to me - I'll stick with my mackerel feathers.

Why? Every one I ever caught tasted gorgeous-just some people wouldn't eat them because of their diet.
