Hi-am new to the forum and a new resident of Hayling.
Have fished the salt abroad,but this is the first time in the Uk. So far have had plenty of small(up to half a pound) bass and a couple of clouser hungry crabs!. Have been fishing the marks that the local tackle shop suggested and a few that I have sussed out for myself,but it all feels a bit random.
Any advice on locating larger fish or are schoolies the norm? (not complaining-it's been great fun!)
Thanks
Ray

Hi,
Schoolies are the norm from the shore,but there are a couple of marks that will hold bigger fish.
Sometimes though they just dont feed and tend to sit there in the current looking all nice and silvery spangly,very frustrating indeed.
If you can get access to a boat you will definitely be connecting with the bigger fish.
Having said that my PB fish was caught at low tide in the evening in no more than 3 feet of water,as you say...random.
Cheers
Simon

hi ray and wecome to the forum.never caught a crab on a clouser before. 8) .true to what si says ,got boat in with a chance of bigger bass ,but a big bass in the shallows has got to be worth his salt for a fight and a half.not got one over 1and half pound yet but all the belive it will come from the hayling area,apart from that such a nice area to fish.
tightlines mick.
