Should still be some mackerel and stuff around this time of year mate. If you fail then give me a shout, I will be doing a bass trip at night from the Hampshire beaches real soon. September is a great time for some plump fish and looking at my diary we had a lot of Bass up to 6lb from the beaches this time last year, best night was 32 fish Very Happy

Cheers Guys,

Didn't catch but had a pleasant evening.



Crabs were stripping the bait as soon as it hit the bottom on the beach, so tried off the bottom in the harbour, was getting good bites just after dark, turned out to be big fat eels, can't fish for them anymore so to avoid temptation ( and a big fine !) I went back to the caravan so see captain morgan.

Not all was lost though, picked a good bag of samphire & some amethyst deceivers on the way back.

Thats not a good cliff, if you knew anything about geology (sorry, not meaning to sound rude or being condecending there Embarassed )You wouldn't go near it. Its the top of an eroded anticline & has so many faults in it that I wouldn't go near it. The next big bit of it to go will be the big chunk in the foreground of the pic.

I won't fish under it on account of the huge boulders that fall off it.
I've spoken to anglers that do & they say the rabits hit the beach first, followed by the jack russel that was chasing them. One reported a sheep hitting the beach with a big thud, it lay there for a few minutes, got up, shook itself & then walked off down the beach! Not bad from 300 feet.

I won't go near cliffs fullstop. But it still looks good.
