thought it might be a good idea, ( with winter fast approaching ) to put a list of tackle shops on here. mainly for the bait side of things.
would also be great if our favourite east coast mod could sticky it. :victory:

Not good news I'm afraid. I've just heard that my local tackle shop, Bailey's Sports, in Sutton-on-Sea will be closing down in the next couple of weeks. I'm aware that they didn't sell fresh sea bait, but they were handy for just about everything else!! I'll certainly miss the shop.
Good news for Lincs. sea fishermen! I was told today by Phil. Bailey of Baileys Tackle shop in Sutton on Sea that the sale of his shop fell through on the very day contracts were due to be exchanged. It was a bit of a shock for him, I'm sure, but he now intends to restock the shop and keep the business going until such time he gets a buyer for "a going concern". The "closing down sale" as now been withdrawn. I also asked him about the prospect of stocking fresh lug. He says he is not against the idea, in principle, for sometime in the future, but he has had his "fingers burnt" in the past by customers not turning up to collect and pay for bait previously ordered.
Anyway, I'm pleased that I've still got a tackle shop a short distance away!
Boo-Hoo!!! Baileys Sport at Sutton on Sea have found another buyer for their shop and are due to close at the end of November. The new owners are going to be selling mobility scooters. Boo-Hoo!!!
I'll lend you my zimmer frame Trev, it won't get stuck in the sand!!
Good news!! The Pet Shop in Sutton on Sea, Lincs. has recently started stocking a range of frozen sea baits, including blacks, squid, mackerel etc. Their address is 35, High Street, Sutton on Sea, Lincs. LN12 1EY.

This is indeed good news for the visiting angler (holiday maker!) as I believe it is the only source where it is to buy bait along the coast anywhere between Chapel St Leonards and Cleethorpes - that is unless anyone else knows differently!!
