Charton Bay

This is a venue for the angler that doesn’t mind a long walk and who like to fish rough ground or Lure fish.

To get to this beach it is a long walk from Lyme Regis (unless you happen to be staying on the Rousdon estate, where there is a path leading down to the beach).

This venue produces big Bass on both lures and bait every year! Large Bull Huss can be taken almost all year round using big Mackerel, Squid, or Cuttlefish baits. Large Ballan Wrasse can be targeted using Peeler Crab and big Ragworm Baits.
the East side of this beach has some big boulders which are visible even on high tide, this is where you want to head if lure fishing. the middle of the beach and towards the West is better for fishing Large baits, targeting some specimen fish.
Because of the very rocky sea bed here, be prepared to lose some tackle!

If you do decide to make the walk to this venue please check the tides, there are various points along the way where you can become “cut off” by an incoming tide!
