I fished Purbeck/ Swanage area sat urday morning and no joy at all. Have also had a chuck at Lepe over the last week or so and again, no joy. Also Redbridge last weekend where I met Pete S both had no joy (when I left at least).

Pete S - saw your van at Redbridge today - any joy...? Was with the wife so didn't stop...

I've had no joy lately around hampshire, i haven't been out this week, just gone, but the water temp is dropping quick and the week before i had three blanks in a row.

Saying that, did see some fish jumping out of range not sure if they were bass feeding or mullet cleaning on their way out. That was off haslar sea wall if it helps (Gosport)

I have been buying a few new bits of gear recently and was hoping to have a short "local" session before the Cornwall bumble to try it out!

Anyone out in Hamphire over the next two weekends ?

Stuff happens, it was my fault, I failed to notice the line was wrapped around the rod tip when I tried casting, pretty sure it won't be the last time.
You have to look at the bright side, Mr Fish is smiling :-D
Maybe I need to buy in Bulk on direct debit from him. ;-)

Rich - shooting's probably a very good idea.

Weather looks poor for this weekend so I think its trout for me.

Might just save all the luck for the Cornwall bumble eh?!?!

I think Sussex is done too, I went down to my clear water "banker" mark this morning and it wasn't very attractive...

If it helps you guys out, i was out today and had 3 pops at the surface lure. No fish but good hits rather than just swirls. Lovely and calm today. I was going to call it quits after this session but not going to just yet as i know the fish are still there.

Let us know how you get on Ivan if you go.

I am going down to the Cornish bumble on the Friday as I would never get down in time Saturday morning so I thought I might stop off in Hampshire en route.

If hampshire is quiet, the alternative is to get down to Cornwall asap and find somewhere to lose a lure or two Friday night.

Andrew - I'm booked in from Friday too - so a Friday session sounds like a good idea.

If I venture out this weekend I will post results!!
