Whalebone Tackle, located on the Nags Head/Manteo Causeway, has been serving Outer Banks anglers since 1977. 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, fillets and finger mullet), frozen minnows, clams, peeler crabs and sand fleas. Ballyhoo, chum and trolling squid are available as well. 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.
