Wasnt sure where to post this so if the mods want to move it to lure fishing then no probs! Ive just been going through my rods and dug out my Rampage Bass Spin, I hardly used it last year but I've got a itch for it now! so I was wondering is there anything worth targeting on the south coast at the moment? anything at all really, I'm not fussy.. I was thinking about a trip to Portland, maybe with the deep water there might be something about, Wrasse or Pollack, as I said anything will do!

Shandy bass is a keen lure man but he's Sussex based and I'm sure he switches to pike and lrf flounders in the winter

Portland will be pretty slow atm. If you want to catch a load of schoolies then Hythe reclaimed land is worth a bash or infact anywhere along this stretch. I had 8 or 9 about 2 weeks back. All came within an hour of the ebb. Alternatively, head to Lepe and fish the ebb. Surface lure if it's flat, black minnow or something similar if it's lumpy. If you decide on Lepe, drop me a pm and I will pin the gulleys and banks on a map for you. Dont hold out too much hope though. Deffo a spring mark

Yeah deffo, drop shot with power isomes, or angle worms
down the side of the pier should produce a few
mini-species for sure,
you wont believe how hard a blenny can pull back
on a 1-5g rod and 3lb line..

You can also try down the inside, there's a ledge you can get down to if you're agile enough.

I've had Mullet and Flounder on the inside, and seen Gurnard come out close in near the end.

So yeah well worth a try.

Can anyone tell me if Bognor Regis pier would be any good for lrf? Cheers
How high is it above the water? a lot of lures wont swim right if your too high above the waters surface, if your gonna try it get a decent 10' lure rod that'll chuck a heavy lure a good distance, other wise fishing too close with LRF your lure will come in nose high.
