Whalebone Tackle, located on the Nags Head/Manteo Causeway, has been serving Outer Banks anglers since 1977. Locally owned and open year around, stop in and take advantage of their laid back, Old Nags Head-style of doing business. Featuring some of the freshest bait available, including fresh mullet, shrimp, bloodworms and night crawlers, they also have frozen squid, mullet (chunks, filets and finger mullet), frozen minnows, clams, peeler crabs and sandfleas. Ballyhoo, chum and trolling squid are available as well. Novice angler or pro, Whalebone Tackle has you covered. Whether you are fishing for spot, trout, drum, bluefish, tuna or that big blue marlin, they'll outfit you with the perfect rod and reel combination to suit your needs and your pocketbook. Master rod builder Jerry is well-known for his top quality custom rods. Many local charter captains rely on Whalebone Tackle to outfit their boats, and that's a testament to Whalebone's selection and service. Whalebone Tackle is a Shimano Top Shelf dealer and carries all the top names in fishing tackle -- Penn, Daiwa, Fenwick, Tica, Shakespeare, Billfisher, Star Rods, Berkley Gulp, Ilander, Mold Craft, Seaguar, Momoi, Jinkai and Z-man to name a few. Polarized sunglasses are a must for anyone spending time on the water, and you'll find the latest from Costa del Mar, Calcutta and Sea Striker here. And, if you don’t see what you're looking for, the folks at Whalebone will be more than happy to order it for you.
