The Solent, Hampshire

South Parade Pier, Southsea.

The waters between the Isle of Wight and the south coast from Portsmouth to Lymington are known as The Solent. The influence of the Isle of Wight makes for strange tides in this area, double tides or long 'stands' of high water.
Fishing marks in this area are, Eastney Beach, Magazine Lane (Marchwood), Hythe Reclaimed Land, Calshot, Lepe, Netley, Weston Shore, Hurst Shingle Bank ,etc Further west from Hurst but included here for convenience are Milford, Taddiford Gap, Hordle and other beaches along to Christchurch.
