Hi , I think Chichester harbour is a great place to start off. Within the harbour Bass are protected so at this time of year you cannot fish there for them. You can launch from Itchenor or a marina etc... The current is quite strong in places so just watch that. I would get used to the boat, launching, recovering and have a little zip about to get sorted. You can get a day ( think £5 ) harbour dues sticker to make it legit
. When you are ready then think about going out to sea from there. The bar can be rough at certain states of tide/wind and the wake from large boats can be scary..
