West sussex SIB

Hi all, just took the plunge and bought myself a SIB boat, its a 2.9 seago with an air deck, paired with a Johnson 8hp and i am really keen to go out with my son Lure fishing in Chichester Harbour or anywhere in west sussex now obviously i want to be safe as i am a SIB virgin and was wondering if there was anyone on here that would show me the ropes a bit, not asking for fishing spots or marks but maybe just someone to come out for a few hours with a bit of experience. Many thanks

Nowhere near your area now but used to muck about there as a kid in the holidays. Welcome to the forum anyway and hopefully this bump will get others to notice your post.

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..

Thanks for the info, looking into a powerboat training course which has been advised to me with a vhf radio course too. i thought you could fish in the harbour? Catch and release? I fish in certain areas from the shore and thought it would be the same.

If you look on the Chi Harbour Conservancy website it is all explained, pretty crazy, from the shore you can catch what you like. Catch and release I believe is OK from a boat. Certainly do the PB1&2, good fun course. The VHF one is good so is the Essential Navigation. This is a bit over the top but its good to know what all the different buoys are for. I fish with my son from there in a 4m Honwave.
