Whether it’s Sea Fishing or Coarse Fishing that you are after there is plenty of excellent choices in this excellent part of North Norfolk.

For sea fishing, there are many productive marks around the coastline, from the shingle beaches of Salthouse and Weybourne, to the sandy beaches of Cromer and Overstrand. Quiet summer evenings off Cromer Pier can produce good numbers of Mackerel in the right conditons, with Bass always a possibility amongst the pier supports if the right tackle and bait is used. During winter time the Pier can produce good numbers of small Codling in a good season, or head around towards the deserted beaches of Trimingham and Mundesley.

For the more adventurous, there is a slipway, (The Gangway), just to the east of the Pier enabling you to launch a sea kayak, and indeed walk it back on a trolley in four minutes to The Old Coach House.

For those more interested in Coarse Fishing, there are dozens of well stocked waters within a 30 minute drive from established estate lakes, to commercial fisheries and everything in between. For estate lake fishing Felbrigg Hall is literally just a 5 minute drive. Gunton Hall is just a little further as is Blickling Hall.

Commercial fisheries such as Chapel Road Lake at Roughton and Gimingham Lakes at Gimingham are both within a ten minute drive.
