Beach News 18th January 2014                                                            

Generally the beach fishing is ok but the fresh water pouring out of the rivers is not helping so best to keep away from the esteries. Some beaches are producing mixed bags of Whiting (lots of pins) but some sizeable and a few codling Codling along with a few Bass which shouldn`t really be there at all..

.  There have been many Flatties showing further Northfrom Aldeburgh to the Southwald area being best .Its oftern a good time of year to catch a large solitary Bass as they come inshore to feed up on the crabs and shrimps before they migrate south down to the Eddystone reef in Devon for the winter before spawning. Fish close in with a long trace arolling lead attached to a pennel rig. Attach a whole squid or even two to the pennel and just let it roll around. Many Bass are caught using this method. Reports of a Bass of 10lb caught from the East lane area just before the holiday. Gm


 Boat fishing  Report 18th January 2014      Our boat Tracy Jane is still swinging on her moorings due to the constant gales that weve now had since Christmas eve. Boxing day was the best day for boating and there were a few boats at sea for a few hours and the fishing was quite good, several whiting  and some  codling on this trip , some huge whiting again with fish to just over 3lb Fishing was on the winter inshore marks.  WE had a couple of big Whiting  on the last trip around the 3lb  mark. Another boat  had a whiting of 4lb  2oz, (Go to my Face book page to see a photograph of this fish) Reports of a 25lb cod from the frinton area on a private boat. A couple of boats fished around the  Shipwash and Towers and caught dogs only. So the inshore winter marks are the places to fish at the moment. It has been a very unsettled windy period for boat fishing, and most trips have been cancelled due to the high winds.  A settled period of weather on wednesday of next week , spaces available  please give me a call.  i also have 4 boat places left for this sunday 18th jan, call me on-    (01473  727841).


I always  have plenty of sea baits during the week and over the weekend but it is always best to order a couple of days proir to your trip if you can and it helps us as well to plan what we need.

I also have plenty of maggotts, casters, pinkies and worms.


Plenty of  Mainline Cell, Active 8 and proactive  pinapple in the freezer.


Special offer on blueys £2.99 per pkt,

About Us



Markham’s Fishing Tackle has been trading at the same address since the early 60’s. We have always been a family run, friendly shop and our Markham’s name is very well respected all over the country. Through the years our shop has grown, not a huge tackle supermarket but a traditional Tackle Shop which I think is just the right size to offer a good range of tackle for sea, course and game anglers.


Personal service is always our first priority. We have a rod repair service and a huge range of spare rod rings and accessories.



Coleman is a big name in the shop and we carry a full complement of lamps at reasonable prices and most common spare parts.

Calor Gas is also stocked and paraffin. Airgun Ammunition and a selection of air rifles from BSA , Gammo, Cometa and SMK are stocked (airarms to order). Bisley products, Black Widow catapaults.
