At Saltburn the pier can be an excellent fishing mark with big bags of whiting been on the cards on flat calm frosty nights, and even bigger bags of cod been on offer after a big northerly swell – best time of year being Feb and March. At low water the rocks and th sandy beach also offer good fishing. Sea damage and council spending cutbacks has reduced the pier to half its former length, but it still produces some top fishing over high water in both summer and winter. Crab and fish baits give best results in the summer : worm, crab, fish and mussel baits in winter can give cod, whiting and the occasional bass.
