Hi
Grandson's 1st spinning kit coming today, are you allowed to fish off the piers at Brid? If not is there anywhere else that we can get him straight into deep water(he's a small 8 yrold)
I normally fish Lincs coast but think that maight be a bit hard for him first time out
Thanks

When we stayed in Brid last September folks were fishing off the pier/wall at the side of the fish dock. Think it’s called South Pier.
Pretty certain the North Pier has ‘no fishing’ signs.
Just a thought though, the sea side wall of the South Pier is quite high if you are an 8 year old......before we went I found several videos of Brid harbour on u tube. On some of these you will see the height of the wall......

South pier (fish dock) should be open. The North pier is only open to fishing during winter months. If the sea is flat & clear there’s a chance of a mackerel on the spinning gear. Usually plenty of dabs, flounders etc on bait. Watch out for weaver fish. Been getting a lot in the shrimp net when we’ve been getting a few shrimp for bait.
Hope this helps.

Officially the north beach is closed to angling during summer. It is possible to fish in the evenings to the north of the beach huts. The south beach is also ok in the evenings after the crowds have left. Chance of dabs & flounders + small bass if there’s a bit of movement.
