Hi all.
With a 4.3m tide at midnight i would imagin that the local beach's will be heavin, especially round my area with the hound being everyone's target.
I'm out tommoz night for them prob try and get to Hillhead early to get a spot. I normally fish Selsey or Pagham but they dont seem to be showing in number's yet up that way!
Anyone else out and about??

I want to get out and about, the bait is ready to go - I just want the wind to back off abit. I might try the Medmerry Bank (towards West Beach, Selsey), Church Norton or maybe Pagham. Anyone fancy meeting up for a hound hunt ?

I know the weed isn't normally that bad at Haslar. Hillhead can fish better but with the weed and also it does get very busy there...... oh what to do!!! Think i might do H H and if it's that bad then move else where

I fished Selsey twice last week and nothing apart from Mackie. Then fished HH on Tuesday night but left at high tide (11ish), only had one run to show for it. At time I left no one had anything of note.

Weed was only an issue close in, number of people fishing was another problem. On a windy Tuesday night with a bad tide the wall was full 3 1/2 hours before high tide.

I would try it again tonight but you would need to get there early for a place and then you end up next to some numpty fishing with a rod from wollies who casts at right angles.....

Maybe food for thought guys, Have been hunting hounds all week and caught 1 small one off Lepe, but went to Lee-on-Solent last night for 2 hours up and down tide at 2300 and caught 3 hounds the smallest 6lb 8oz and the biggest (see attached photo) couldn't weight it scales not big enough but measured at 97cm tip to tail.

That's not a smoothy, that's a baby whale shark. Well done. Great catch.:clap2::clap2::clap2:

Had 7 hounds in 2 nights a fortnight ago at Selsey up to 10lb, seems quiet now tho. Where do you fish at Lee on Solent? any hotspots?

Parked at hovercraft slipway, fished just inside first groyne to the left with the green triangle on. 70-80 yards out 4/0 pennel frozen peeler. I was the only person on the beach last night seemed strange cos it was a really mild night hardly any wind.
