Can anyone offer any fishing advice?

With the weather getting nice I fancy doing a bit of fishing down on the south coast - I've been in Brighton / Hove with my brother and packed a couple of rucksacks with mackerel - after some advice really...

I don't have any kit - what should I get and where from? Is it worth investing in decent equipment? It'll be off the beach and from a boat... Also cycle/ motorcycle everywhere - needs to get down as small as poss! :)

Any info appr. Rep will be left :)

There was ( probably still is) a tackle shop at Brighton Marina, can't remember the name but it's near McDonalds.

They offer all equipment and bait, they even deliver bait to you on the beach if you phone them.

Somewhere like that should be able to offer you advice on what you need. I assume you wont need 2 separate rods for beachcasting and uptiding.

Not in Brighton - I live in Portsmouth and it's a fair cycle :)
Anyone know a good Portsmouth shop?
How much should I be looking to spend and anyone know what I'm likely to catch?

Oh sorry, you mentioned Brighton in the original post. :oops:

There are loads of tackle shops in and around Pompey, only one I am familiar with is Allan's Marine on Twyford Avenue, they are very helpful and knowledgeable and will offer you good advice on what you need.

Hayling Island offers good fishing for things like smoothhounds, dogfish, bass, bream etc. Use mackerel strips and lugworms for bait and fish between the funfair and The Inn on the Beach or try Stokes Bay at Gosport. ( this info is from other half who's the keen fisherman)

will it be a small charter boat your on (like with a group of other people taken out to sea to fish for ??) cos if it is they will sometimes have equipment that can be hired from them for a fee.
Even if its not that type of boat fishing there will be places nearby that hire and sell equipment.
And if its likely to be a hobby you do on a regular basis you'd be best off buying stuff for yourself, a lot can be bought cheap at jumble/car boot sales.
From experience fishing is not a sport that is easily done if your travelling using a bike as most of the equipment is rather big and bulky, the rods being a good meter and a half even when taken apart.
