Signing up was simple, and I found that the long-serving forum members are very welcoming.

2. Talk Sea Fishing Forum

A small, community driven forum, that contributes to a large collection sea fishing tips, info, places to fish and tackle talk.

One of the busiest areas to hang out has to be in Shore Fishing, which is no surprise, as the UK has some popular coastline fishing spots such as Chesil Beach.

Members: 961
Most Active Section: Tackle Questions
Total Posts: 2,281
Standout Section: 2021 Species Hunt

There were 54 members online when I checked out the Talk Sea Fishing forum, so its certainly always active!

My favourite section was the catch reports, which can give a great insight into what coastal areas are fishing well.

A good solid sea fishing forum, although there are too many ads, but I figure this is needed to cover running costs.

3. Angling Addicts

A general fishing forum that seems to have some sort of tie up with Gerry’s Fishing Tackle Shop, possibly to support the site by offering some tackle deals.

The sea fishing section has some great member tutorials and an active Junior section.

Members: 3,842
Most Active Section: North-west Sea Reports
Total Posts: 188,000
Standout Section: Banter Boardroom

We can tell that the forum has a huge following up in the North-West of England as there are thousands of catch reports from that location!

I enjoyed the off-topic chat in the ‘Banter Boardroom. 

However, a little section that could easily be missed was  ‘Kayak Fishing’ which I found very informative, especially for beginners.

If you do fish regularly up in the North-West, you should definitely sign-up to Angling Addicts!

Boasting around 5000 members and over 180000 posts, its members were quick to help me out with any of my questions.

Members seemed very active in all of the area sections, which include the Welsh Coast and Thames Estuary.

5. Southwest Sea Fishing Forum

Powered by popular forum software vBulletin, this is  easy to navigate around the various county sections and is fully responsive on mobile.

The South West is one of the leading sea fishing areas in the UK, making this forum an extremely great resource for both locals and visitors to the area.

Members: 1,078
Most Active Section: Catch Reports
Total Posts: 135,634
Standout Section: Matches & Competitions

There are a fair few categories, which include shore fishing, meets & events, a fish of the month competition and a suggestion box.

My pick would be the light rock fishing category. This style of fishing has really taken off (COVID aside) these past few years, and you’ll learn a lot from reading through the FAQ’s.

I would recommend signing up if you are planning a trip to the South West soon.
