Impressive stuff Steve 👍. That's a good catch. Were you targeting the trout or just a happy bycatch?

I'd be lying if I said yes....

Had them on bait up Hillhead way, years ago, free lining rag on ebbing tide couldn't miss..

River Meon (inland from Hillhead) holds healthy head of ST and knowing anglers from that syndicate, steady catch reports flows throughout the year and electro surveys conducted in past years.. sluice at Hillhead Harbour - one way in and out. 

The bay, I thought, would be out of range.. assuming ST would hang around closer to the river system they were born!? Interestingly, I'd heard dits from folk concerning the spot I had previously taken you to (within pompey harbour), that said it used to be a hotspot for ST. (presumably from the Wallington) 

Interesting though, that same mark has turned up flounder, gurnard and ST.. all to metals.
