East Sussex

East Sussex

The area of East Sussex stretches from Portlslade in the West to Hastings in the East. The East Sussex page will enable you the shore angler to fish a multitude of fishing locations from Brighton Marina to Hastings pier with the opportunity of catching many different species.

As with every county I have handpicked the areas that offer the biggest variety of fishing options, whilst being close to large towns for access and convenience, these include;


BrightonBrighton: Brighton is one of the most iconic cities in the South East of England, famed for its quirky lanes, huge music scene and some incredible shore fishing locations. This is an area of East Sussex that on its day can fish better than some of the more famous beaches close by. Brighton and Hove are a great base to explore areas of East Sussex that have to be fished at. With a large choice of great guides in the area and close proximity to other Sussex areas Brighton is a fantastic sea fishing location.




EastbourneEastbourne: Eastbourne is perhaps best renowned for a town with a large percentage of its population of retireable age rather than its shore fishing locations. However it has got to be said that this area has some fantastic beaches and piers to be explored. This area of the British Isles is famed for its winter fishing and the beaches at Eastbourne and close by can be fantastic shore fishing locations that all anglers in the area should explore.




Hastings: The town of Hastings is of course famed above most things with the certain battle that took place in 1066, however this is a fantastic town in which to explore some of the shore fishing locations close by. I have covered locations stretching from Eastbourne to the West almost to Dungeness to the North East. I hope to show not only the well-known fishing locations of Hastings but also some areas that are less well known.




River OuseRiver Ouse: The River Ouse that snakes its way through rural Sussex has some fantastic tidal shore fishing locations. Although the quarry will be similar in most of the locations along these tidal river banks there is some brilliant fishing to be had. A good run of Sea Trout is now becoming more common along this river (although a rode license is required), you can also expect good bass and mullet fishing during the summer months with great flounder fishing in the winter.
