Home - Lead Us Charters Sea Fishing Lowestoft

Welcome to Lead Us Charters

Lead Us Charters, based in Oulton Broad, fishes year-round from the historic herring port of Lowestoft in Suffolk with a 20 Mile Code 3 Code of Practice.

Lead Us is a 32ft clinker built Yorkshire Coble skippered by RYA Yachtmaster Offshore and pilot boat coxwain Colin De Block. The Norfolk and Suffolk coasts provide an excellent angling experience with catches ranging from the smaller dabs and whiting through the beautifully-marked dogfish and onto the hard fighting Bass and Smoothound; Codling are a staple catch throughout autumn, winter and spring with some of the larger cod appearing amongst the shoals of smaller fish and who knows?

It's not just about the fishing though! There's wildlife in abundance with passing harbour porpoises, inquisitive seals, dancing starlings all regularly seen and historic Lake Lothing, through which you pass en-route to the harbour mouth, is home to many fine vessels reflecting the maritime history of the town; see LT472 Excelsior, a 1921 Lowestoft Fishing Smack and YH89 Lydia Eva, the last steam-powered herring drifter as well as LT412 Mincarlo, the last of the Lowestoft Sidewinder Trawlers and the first of the Motor Torpedo Boats, MTB 102, which carried soldiers off the beaches of Dunkirk and, later, Churchill and Eisenhower on a tour of the D-Day Beaches as well as appearing in the film The Eagle Has Landed!

With help, advice and tuition available to novice or more experienced anglers and catering for parties of up to 10 people on a full boat or individual full or half day session, Colin can be contacted on 07803 270798.
