Just love this place, especially in the Winter or at sunset. Very popular with locals and tourists from near and far. Steeped in history is Tynemouth - just keep walking around and reading the Blue Plaques!

Yes you can, although you'd need a sea fishing licence. A quick google can bring up many angling clubs who share advice on fishing in this area.
