This was a while ago now. Infact 1981, I caught it on whole squid on a boat called aquarius. Next to the fort in 120 foot of water, in the solent. The hilton hotel in London gave me £35 for it. That was a fair bit of cash then.

It actually held the record for the largest rod caught crustacean in Portsmouth for a number of years.

Thats a monster!

I was living down that way back then (Fareham). Used to go out on a charter boat called "joy" from Hayling Island to fish the Nab.

Hey Mussleman I really didn't appreciate just how good we had it down south. Both fresh water and sea fishing was a lot more productive. It really shows just how difficult things now are up here in the NW.

The boat fishing was good. Saw lots of 20lb+ cod caught, big smoothhounds, rays and a few tope.

Shore fishing where I was I recall being pants though, Fareham creek, Hill Head, Lee on Solent and across to Portsmouth harbour - flounders, eels, flounders, eels, flounders, eels and the occasional small bass or wrasse.

I used to try and get around a bit. I used to fish the Dover breakwater, Dungerness beach, Chesel bank in Dorset, I also used to work on the charter boats out of Margate and Ramsgate as crew, we had loads of big cod in the Thames estuary, and the channel. On Brighton marina wall it wasn't unusual to catch 3 or 4 bass on Joe mackeral, we didn't even mention fish under 10lb, or was I dreaming. Thats how good it used to be. I think I am getting home sick.
