Outer Banks Bait & Tackle Shop - Nags Head 

Oceans East is the one-stop bait and tackle shop for the Outer Banks sport fisherman. Humble beginnings as a small tackle shop have grown into two locations serving the needs of both North Carolina and Virginia. Since 1982, Oceans East has operated in the Hampton Roads area. In the spring of 2019 Oceans East opened a second location in Nags Head, offering the same extensive selection and friendly customer service that we've become known for. You can trust us to provide accurate and hands-on knowledge on everything from inshore fishing to offshore trolling. Most staff members have years of experience as local fisherman, mates or charter captains.

You'll find a little bit of everything at Oceans East. Our selection includes freshwater and saltwater bait and tackle, apparel, tackle packages, custom rods and rigging, reels, marine supplies and much more. Top brands in include Smith, Yeti, Squid Nation, Maui Jim, Fathom Offshore, Black Bart, Shimano and many more.

Oceans East is not your average big-box tackle store. Our staff have passion and experience and are ready to assist with your bait and tackle needs. Whether you're a beginner or an expert looking for solid unpretentious advice, stop in or give us a call! Customer service is our top priority, regardless of your skill level. We looking forward to serving your hunting, fishing and sporting needs.
