Fishing On Deal Pier

Deal Pier

Fishing is permitted on sections of the pier stem, (and lower deck when it reopens). Tickets can be purchased on arrival at the pier entrance.

Please note, following initial feedback from the structural survey on Deal Pier, we have taken the precautionary measure of temporarily closing the lower deck. The survey has identified that work needs to be done on the steps down to the lower deck, which will remain closed until work is carried out. The main part of Deal Pier remains open. Works will be carried out as soon as possible, and we apologise for any inconvenience.

Fish of the month competition

We run a fish of the month competition for which the winner receives two complementary combined day/night tickets.

Simply purchase a fishing ticket from the pier entrance on the day of your visit for your chance to win this prize.

If you feel you have a prize winning catch, please contact the pier attendant on duty who will weigh and record your catch. If your fish is the largest recorded at the end of the month we will contact you.

Each ticket can be used for one full day of fishing on the pier and is valid for three months from the date the tickets were issued. Proof of identification will be required to use each ticket.
