Eastham Slab

Eastham Slab is a fishing venue on the Wirral side of the River Mersey. The slab is really the old Eastham Jetty which was used to transfer goods across the Mersey.

To access the platform you have to climb over the gate, it’s not very big though but something to be aware of. Once you are over there is enough room for a good few anglers. There are no railings around the platform so you will need a tripod and eyes in the back of your head if you take kids.

Fishing is relatively easy once you are over the gate as the entire platform is flat. Just be careful not to lose any small items through the gaps in the floor.

Eastham slabs past use means a short cast will put you into a deep channel.

There is also fishing marks along the prom front, all down the grass path way. Directly across from The Tap Pub there is a concrete platform. Head to this and there is a pathway on your right hand side. It takes you down towards the dock and it’s whole length can be fished.
