I've been fishing for the best part of 20 years on and off and absolutely love it and having a few mates who were up for doing a bit here and there so the fact I dont drive didn't really matter. I could always find a way to get out and get my fishing fix. Also having Southampton water on my doorstep Ive spent a hell of a lot of my time the past few years preoccupied with catching a double figure bass which I managed to get and was lucky enough to beat my pb several times. Problem is id love to be able to fish some of the other brilliant marks we have around the south more regularly and need someone who's fishing mad like me to share transport with and fuel, bait costs ect.

regards Paul.

I live in fleet which is at best an hour from the coast. If I ever fish down that way ill let you know. For example if I was to go to lepe then you're not much of a diversion?
thanks really appreciate the offer. i live just off the m27 near Netley/Bursledon so fairly easy to get to. I'm always up for a sesh so would be great if you could bare me in mind if you do get down this way.
cheers.

Similar situation for me bud, I am based at fareham and most of my mates packed it in. I do drive so next time i am out i'll send you a pm. Most of my fishing is for particular species so I dont tend to go out scratching. Weather is putting most of my plans on hold at he moment but as soon as we get a window you are welcome to join me. Mostly fish weekends though as I start work at 6am. I am looking for a regular buddy to team up with if thats something you are interested in.

cheer for the offer that's brilliant. most of the lads I fish with are fair weather fishermen who are happy to fish the odd night every month or so and not really interested in going to far a field in search of certain species. we're as I'm up for putting the effort and hours in to learn as much as I can. weekends suit me to as I'm up for work same time myself.
much appreciated paul

Hi Paul. I live in Aldershot, so I'm practically neighbours to 'I hate whiting' and similarly not local to you. But should I find myself heading to your part of the coast, there's passenger and gear space in my van.

Off topic but when I was disqualified from driving 8 years ago hell broke loose about not being able to drive to the coast. So I posted a thread on the wsf south coast looking for nutters just like you....and ended meeting a couple of nice South African fellow living nearby I live in London suburb who took me fishing and I showed them the ropes on my marks. We're now best friends although they have since move back home last year.

Well I live right by jct 5 near Eastleigh so could give you a shout when I'm heading out, in fact if things don't go wrong I'm going to a comp on Weston Shore this Saturday if you fancy tagging along?
Paul (oh oh another Paul, this could get confusing) LOL
