Many happy memories of fishing Hornsea (don't get down there anymore), under Marine Bar and further North was usually good in right conditions. Two black lug tipped with mackerel chucked about 80 yards out would do the trick for most species with a good swell on and a north westerly. It is a place that will fish it's head off or you will stand there for six hours and get nothing, ring the tackle shop listed before making a journey from say Doncaster or the like. If rockling abound you will catch nothing else so move on to somewhere like East Newton or Ringborough (but only if you have chest waders to get down the cliff and through the clay, as I remember). Another species which signifies the end of decent sport here is something we used to call a 'lumpsucker', all mouth and skrawny tail, a real cow to reel in, and when you finally did it would growl and snarl like a dog whilst you tried to unhook it! Many a night the cry would ring out from the darkness up the beach, "Throw that twat a bone!" Happy days. Still haven't identified what they are in any book or publication to this day. You get them on Brid' North and Reighton too. Anyway, with the right local knowledge Hornsea is a good mark that will fish all year round. Easy access, good parking, a few fish and a pint in the Marine afterwards. Good days. They never minded anglers drinking back then. Is it still so? I might make a day and an evening out of it down there if computer says yes.
