Big Catch Tackle for all your carp, match and sea fishing needs.

We are currently in the process of planning the move to a new purpose built tackle shop and show room which is being constructed on site and opening in the new year.

Big Catch Tackle shop is part of Lakeside Leisure Ltd which was established in 1974 by John Cook and is still run by the family today. We sell quality fishing tackle, bait and clothing from our shop in Chapel St Leonards, Lincolnshire. You can now buy quality fishing tackle online from our secure website and we will deliver to you by either Royal mail or by courier for the larger items. We will do our best to send your orders on next day delivery if they are received before 3pm.

We stock all the leading fishing tackle brands including: ABU, Akios, Anyfish Anywhere, Asso, Avid Carp, Berkley, Breakaway, Century Sea, Cox and Rawle, Daiwa, DAM, Drennan, Dynamite Baits, E.S.P, Fiiish Lures, Fin-Nor, Fox, Fox Rage, Gemini, Greys, Guru, Hart, INOVA, Kamasan, Korda, Korum, Korum Snapper, Matrix, Mainline Baits, Middy, Nash, Nomura, NuFish, Okuma, Penn, Preston Innovations, Rapala, Riot Baits, Rovex, Sakuma, Salmo, Samson Lures, Savage Gear, Shakespeare, Shimano, Sidewinder, Sonubaits, Sticky Baits, Stonfo, Storm, Sufix, Trakker, Tronix Pro, VMC and Zziplex.

Our friendly staff can advise you on the best tackle, baits and techniques to use in specimen carp fishing, match fishing, predator fishing and sea fishing from the beach and the boat. If you are local come in to the shop and pick up a bargain or try out our poles, rods, reels, seat-boxes and shelters. If you need to collect your orders from the shop late outside of our hours (we are open seven days a week 8:00am till 5:00pm), please call us and we will try our best to have someone around to help. We'll also keep you up to date on where's fishing well locally to help you catch more fish.

Live coarse fishing baits such as castors, maggots and worms are available in season, plus fresh ragworm and a full range of quality frozen baits for sea fishing from suppliers such as Riot baits.

At Lakeside Leisure we also have a touring caravan and camping site, where you can, bring and store your caravans on the complex. The beach is located just metres behind the shop and is a renowned venue for sea fishing, with bass, smooth-hounds and rays caught well into double figures every summer. It is a great match venue for whiting, dogfish and dabs in winter. Local Sea fishing and match reports can be found on our Facebook page.Big Catch Tackle .
