    good afternoon all ,
    I am traveling up from Manchester possibly fri or Saturday , and aside from making my usual visit to Saltburn Pier at high tide , I am looking to try and find a venue reasonably close to there to try out a fishing shelter which was a pressie !
    If anyone knows of any good beach marks which would be suitable to try it out I’d be most grateful to hear !
    Along with any tips etc !
    Many thanks in advice !
    SG :)

    Fri,sat f/cast 5-6mph SSE,

    As well as sandsend, nearer to saltburn you can try out a shelter in ship inn.

    Joking apart, marske beach has nice sand/,shingle to "bed your shelter" try below

    Cliff house/slip way, along to st Germain's church,few bass cod,whitting showing

    Also cattersea beach suitable for your base camp,clay point along to scar edge .

    Good luck.

    Thanks for the reply , I’ll have a look on google earth :) I’ve read about fishing from the car park at sandsend but I can see from the map that there appears to be good access right down towards the golf course :)

    Hi ,
    Thanks for the reply , a chap in a tackle shop in Billingham told me about Marske beach too, but I never got around to going last time. I’ve seen St Germaims church on google earth , I take it you’re talking to the left of that up towards where the boats are moored ? I’m assuming the picture on google earth is at low water ? Does tide come right in tonthe top of the slipway ? It looks close enough to Saltburn to do either before high water and the time I can hit the pier If I do both on a day .. of not I’ll make 2 trips !

    Runswick bay is a good sheltered mark especially when there's a big sea on. I find the beach at Sandsend fishes better than the car park, park at in lay-by at side of road & go down the steps. It fishes best bottom tide up the same for Runswick.
    The beaches around here aren't relay suitable for beach shelters as they are all fairly flat and the tide comes in fast forcing you to keep moving back.

    To be honest I wouldnt bother with youre shelter mate all our beaches are shallow so you probably only get an hour either side of low/high water. Then you'll be moving it every ten minutes, bad enough moving rod rests, rods, bags etc, otherwise it'll be half a mile behind you up the beach with a load of dogs peeing on it.

    Thanks for all the really helpful advice and support. I’ve had to slide my trip back to next weekend now, but I will certainly, have a look at some of the places mentioned.

    On current forecasts you'll struggle to find a fishable beach anywhere near Saltburn. Probably Runswick the best bet,with easy access, in a big sea. Dependent on the weed situation.
