I've not been fishing long, I've always struggled to find places to fish.
However, I always use MBK leisuries. Barron Ponds and The Pump Station are good. I find the pump station is smaller, although the last time I went the owner was creating the car park and doing some proper walkways. Not many trees surround the The Pump Station pond, so if you want a bit of a cast when it's empty, there is room. The Barron Ponds is a very nice 82 pegs, when I always go, I find the lower smaller pond has the bigger fish. Day tickets are about £7.50, but going up to £10. I hear season tickets are going to be priced soon. It's worth the money, the owner seems to be doing a bit of work on the ponds. And if you know any one in a wheelchair, the sites are manageable, it's just the odd tree trunks and bit of mud that may be a pain.

I was going to go sea fishing tonight with my brother. He's changed his mind so probably tomorrow now.
Where do you normally sea fish? When I've been, I've been on the beaches and the sea wall by the bridge, all on hayling.

Theres a few decent lakes around the Fareham and Southampton area.

River Farm in Fareham, and Rooksbury just outside are worth a look.

Don't think River Farm has a website but the Eastleigh angling club do.

Few pics here also, http://www.carpcorner.co.uk.

Hi Mate
Some of portsmouth club waters have some very nice carp to over 35lb at the very least maybe even over 40lb.
