Clacton Pier has long been regarded as one of the prime sea fishing spots along the Tendring coastline.
Summer or Winter, there is always plenty of action to be had on this six acre pleasure pier. Although, like Walton pier, this pier is hugely popular with day trippers during the summer season, its berthing arm ensures a more private fishing session than the pier in Walton.
Our "Day Fishing Permits" are valid from 8am - 6pm and allow the holder to fish from the pier bearthing arm at the pier head with up to two rods per person.
To activate your Annual fishing pass you will need to bring two forms of ID (1 being photographic and the other a utility bill no more the 3 months old) plus 2 x passport size photos. You will also need to fill out an application form which you can be printed off from this page.
Once the Pier office has received all of the above and checked the identification a pass will be issued within 5 working days. This pass should be collected from the Security Office at the front of the Pier (this will not be sent out in the post unless a SAE is sent in with the application).
Our annual memberships are valid 24/7 and allow the holder to fish from the pier bearthing arm at the pier head with up to two rods per person.
