I'm shooting over to Wooten Creek tomorrow and will stop to catch some Mackerel on the way back home. So will keep an eye out.

PS.....Not that I know of any particular place that is better than anywhere else. Most keep their spots secret, but I would try the area's marked on the map or drift langston entrance for the odd Bass or two if your lucky. Smoothound are plenty and Rays are starting to appear.

Give me a call on 77 at about 2 ish

Hi Lewy,

Try near the entrance to Cowes when the tide is in full flow - if you can see seagulls diving you'll probably catch something. I caught a 1kg Bass there 2 weeks ago with a simple spinner....

Also try the eastern edge of the channel, just at the drop, to the east of Calshot Spit lightbouy. There often seems to be quite a few fishing type boats there.
