Hi Speedy,

Welcome to the Forum.

The nearest to Oxford is around the Hillhead, Lea - on - Solent area on Southampton Water.

According to my fishing colleagues on the South coast this is quite productive at the moment.

Cheers

Drew

North Cornish rock marks have historically been fairly productive, areas between Godrevy (Hayle) and Portreath - Find a spot that has a reasonable depth of water at all states of the tide and fishes onto sand. Also I gather that there used to be a decent chance of Tope around Trevose Head. Course as an old Fa*t I am probebly living in the past somewhat.

they have been landed off chesil beach in recent years. i think i may have hooked into one the other week there. it started to pull my rod out of the stand so i gave it some slack and then struck it, it immeadiatly went steaming downtide so i followed it for about 10seconds and then it bit thought the 30lb trace. i reckon it was either a tope or a giant bass or hound!
