In Scarborough we have several different fishing marks we have listed a few off them but there is loads more anglers use, we have highlighted the more common on known marks.
The different marks around Scarborough allow anglers to target a huge variety of species from the beaches, kelp beds and rocks. And we have divided the marks page into several parts
Kayak Fishing, Inshore boat fishing, shore fishing, and offshore boat fishing.
The main key to all angling is knowing what fish live in each habitat at the time of year their fishing, then an angler can use the correct bait, hooks and technique to try and catch the species their after.

Angling from the shore in the UK is very hazardous to say the least. Every year lives are lost whilst pursuing our fascination with sea angling. Anglers of all levels of ability need to be very very careful.
At this point I would like to offer a few words of advice to anglers.
Never attempt to fish a new area without the help and advice of someone experienced in fishing that area.
Always check the tide and ensure you will be safe to access and exit your chosen area. Watch out for cut off points. If you have any doubt dont go.
Be aware of the weather forecast. Conditions can change fast.
Do not fish heavy seas. Its very dangerous and your wasting your time anyway, fish do not like really rough seas. Leave it a day or 2 until the sea is dieing.
Dont access closed areas, eg piers whilst the storm gates are shut.
Carry some form of communication,
Tell someone where you are going and when you intend to return. Ask them to raise the alarm should you not return.
