    Default Bait & Tackle Shops (Emerald Isle & Swansboro)

    Going down to Swansboro and Emerald Isle this coming friday and I need to know where to find good bait and friendly faces. I live in Kinston and the Neuse Sport shop is always helpful, but would just assume get what I need down towards the coast. Where are the good stores down in the area?

    Dudleys is good with good prices. Reel Outdoors on EI is also good, prices eeeeeeeeeeh ok
    I like fishing. Not actual fishing - I like the peace and quiet of being at sea. It's different.

    Reel Outdoors is very nice. Not sure what you are looking for but they have it all. As far as prices they are ok. I like the store because its not very far so its easy to get to.

    dudley's has a great inventory of saltwater related tackle, as does the reel outdoors. the RO is also a great place to get any local info about what's biting where. dudley's might be just as good for that, but i'm always closer to RO so always stop there when i get into town, buy a couple of items and collective some good local info about recent fishing/catching in the area.

    there's another tackle store on hwy58 just a couple of miles north of the 58/24 intersection in cape carteret. anyone recall the name?

    I would rank them this way:
    1. Reel Outdoors here in Emerald Isle on NC 58 (Emerald Dr.)
    2. Dudley's on NC 24 in Swansboro at the bridge over the white oak river
    3. Coastal Marine and Sport on NC 58 just out of Cape Carteret
    4. K & V bait and tackle - just opened on the street going into the bogue inlet pier.
    Then there is West Marine and EJW in Morehead City on US 70
    The Reel Outdoors has package deals and combos along with some good deals on used equipment. Ask the clerks about discounts.
    sometimes they will discount purchases. Greg the owner and the staff are more than willing to assist you and they have the latest fishing info.
    Hope your trip to Emerald Isle is a great one and that you find everything you need.

    From Emerald Isle I go to Reel Outdoors if by car, Dudley's if by boat. Just remember about Dudley's - it's ok to pet the dogs, DO NOT get near the parrot, lol.

    Coastal Marine and Sport on Hwy 58 about 2.5 miles before you get to Cape Carteret. It will be on your right. Once you get on the island then Reel Outdoors.

    Here's another spot, new for live bait, great people and prices beat anyone. As you cross the Rte 24 bridges in Swansboro toward Cedar Point, on your right is the Nancy Lee Fishing Center. They just put new live bait storage on their pier, and their prices beat anyone around...
