Has anyone fished this mark with lures? My usual marks have really dropped off this month, partly due to coloured water but also a lack of decent sized fish. Thus, new areas need to be explored.

Cheers.

I've heard of a guy that does well at hurst. Never fished it myself so can't personally comment and not sure whether early, middle or late season, i do know it produces though. Be warned tide rips through there.

I tried my luck last year at Hurst, managed to blank big time.
Mega weed, If I was going to try again I would only fish neep tides.

I have only fished it once with a friend. The best spot is just behind the castle where the spit hooks around slightly. When I fished there loads of mackerel and garfish were driving small fish up into this slight bay and we enjoyed some great fun fishing with anything shiny. Good Luck. I also think there are a fair few schoolies in the estuary there good fun on LRF.

Hope this is of some help.

I've never fished it myself but a lot of people on a bait forum I know do. Can be a nightmare for weed on big tides like others have said, so I'd try it on neaps.
