Where to Crab Fishing in Southampton/Portsmouth

Hi Guys

I want to take the kids crab fishing today. The only place I have ever been is Mudeford - but I don't really want to travel that far - do any of you know somewhere closer we can go?

Thanks

Ben

Hi Ben

I used to take my kids to Portchester Castle.

The northern side of the moat at HW is a great place for crab fishing. Theres a little wooden bridge they can fish from. Well dangle a bacon laden dropline anyway.

There's a big car park adjacent to it (free I think...but that may have changed)

If they get bored with crabbing or the tide goes out then theres the Castle to play in.

Cheers
Robin

I found www.crabbydays.co.uk which mentions hamble too, so think I will give that a try. I see the Bournemouth air show is on today... So don't think I'm going to venture that way today!
