Hello karlos1

I you don't cast very far then Freshwater Bay can be a good choice for a variety of small stuff pout rockling wrasse, but keep your wits about you as their is always a chance of a good size bass. Most baits work at this venue and you could even try a lure with your spinning rod. You should get fish within 30 yards of the shore.
:f1:
Sandown and Shanklin can also produce but you will have to cast a far bit further, but you can expect pout rockling small pollack and if your lucky skate bass even a small conger, alas this doesn't happen very often.
:f2:
If I here of anywhere suitable that is fishing I'll post here.
:f3:
Regards and enjoy your visit.

Hi Carlos,
Another possibility is Yarmouth Pier for small Bass & Mackerel on spinning gear. I think the ebb fishes best & the fish can often be seen on the surface next to or under the pier. The tide runs very strong for bottom fishing so probably not worth the effort. Virtually no free parking so be carefull to put plenty of time on your ticket.
I think there is a tackle & bait shop in Freshwater main villiage (not the bay)that would be fairly close to you. Otherwise Scotties in Newport (found by going right through Boots in the high street & the shop is next door on the left of their rear entrance.) Advice, bait & tackle.
Beach fishing along the South West coast of the Island can be good for Pout, Conger, Bass etc but evening/night best & some cliff paths not good. Brook car park or Chilton(next to Island Pearl) are easy access with reasonable fishing now & then. Compton beach (first obvious car park East of Freshwater bay) is very shallow & does not seem to produce very much although sometimes Mackerel come close inshore on high tide if calm.
I hope you have a good time

The problem with Yarmouth pier at this time of year would be the weed and strong tides so you would need to keep your wits about you.

One place that is easily accessible would be Cowes front but can be a bit snaggy and like Yarmouth will probably have plenty of weed, but if you use crab baits you can expect Bass and Smoothounds. This is best fished on the flood as you will not be able to hold bottom on the ebb tide, also with this venue you don't have to cast miles.

Just in case you have access while on holiday.

I have heard that Sole have been coming in at Shanklin and a few flatties have been caught at St Helens duver.
