Hey guys, is it possible to fish for Huss off the shore in and around the Brighton area or other semi local marks?
Ive only ever seen two in this area since 1989, from the shore, and the way we fish, and where we fish, wed of had one by now, even by accident, goodluck on your quest

Be like trying to find a needle in a haystack bud...you'll be better off saving up a bit and making a roadtrip down to the Purbecks, between Swanage and Weymouth, literally hundreds of marks that produce huss down there

Bull Huss (greater spotted dogfish) is usually sold in the chippy as rock salmon. Though it wouldn't surprise me if lesser spotted doggies are also sold as the same.

Pretty sure I got pollock last night sold as cod.

There are quite a lot of medium Huss coming up amongst the doggies at deal pier. Not local to Brighton but if you want one for your species list (along with teeny codling) then that's the place to go. Seems to fish better for Huss on the ebb.

Been a long time since I lived and fished the South coast between Dungie and Chesil.
Never heard of Bull Huss down there.
Best bet is head a bit further West.
If you are into exploring then find some fairly rough ground off the beaten track that has deep water close in and stick it out with some big fish/squid baits - you might get a lunker of a Bass if nothing else.
Good luck mate.

Seen a couple of small ones caught on Worthing pier during a match on the end. Def Huss as they had the fangs. And saw a pic of a guy called Kerry have one on shoreham west arm fishing for bass with a mackeral tail. Think it was a shade under 10lb but a total fluke/one off.
