Hi all,

Will be down at Hythe (the one opposite Southampton) over the weekend launching from Calshot Activities Centre (5m RIB). Just a trip to see sister and family and take the kids out (hers, not mine) for a first sea-fishing trip. Does anyone have any recommendations for a few local marks that I could try? Nothing too ambitious as they may not have good sea legs. I suppose mackies will have to be on the schedule for excitement but something more varied would be welcome. Local knowledge obviously helps! :clap:

Oh, and any advice about launching and local conditions. Have checked Boatlaunch, Easytide, Xcweather and Windguru for an indication of conditions. Early days yet but looking like westerlies.

Thanks for any info or advice. :hug:

Arthur

Thanks, All, for your responses. They've given me some guidance and ideas.

Whilst researching the area I came across this website - brilliant!!
http://www.ais-live.co.uk/aismap/AIS Maps/solent.html. It also allows you to listen to the marine radio traffic channels in the Solent. Fascinating stuff. :clap:
