Mix of all 3. There's a couple local places I enjoy going to because they have everything you need and nothing you don't. Some things I order on the internet because of price or limited availability. I don't usually hit the box stores unless they have a good sale going on. Dicks often has buy one get one half off. On some lures it makes it a good price, others are priced just normal at that point.

Between Ace hardware(Swansboro), Dudley's(Cedar Point) Coastal Marine(Cape Carteret) The Reel Outdoors(E.I.) West Marine(Morehead) And Wal-Mart (Morehead), ChasinTails (Atlantic Beach) I've pretty much have any tackle, boating and fishing supplies I need....

90 % of the time I buy from either One Fly outfitters or Curtis -Wright. Sometimes I venture to Orvis in Biltmore Park or Bass Pro. Our Wally World and Dick's in Asheville are pretty pathetic when I am looking fro spinning stuff.

Fishing tackle over all in Asheville area is pretty poor.

Curtis Wright has a little, so does Heritage Outdoors in Fletcher.

Dicks (both Asheville locations), Wal Mart are lousy unless you need a cheap made in China rod for opening day of trout season.

Dicks on Wood Avenue (near Lowes east Asheville) when it first opened used to be much, much better.

Dunhams Sports in Hendersonville is even worse than Dicks in terms of overall tackle selection.

I'd like to go out to Waynesville and check out Waynesville Bait and Tackle.

No well stocked store for the spin or bait cast fisherman unfortunately.

I wear out the $1.50 Wally World bins near my house. Most of the time they actually ring up items not even in the box as $1.50. If I need a specialty item I go Dicks or BPS.

EZ Bait & Tackle in Goldsboro, Eastern Outfitters in Jacksonville and Hampstead. Some at East Coast Sports at Surf City. I try to support the locals as much as I can as long as they are reasonable with their prices.

Majority of my shopping is at local shops (Tackle Box, Bobcats, Outhouse, fishing expo vendors) or big box. It depends what I need, when I need it, what is convienient and best price. With Bass Pro, Gander Mtn and Field N Stream so close I dont have to order alot online. Most of what I use is pretty common readily available stuff. I buy my line in 1000 yd spools, Tackle Warehouse is about the only place that sells those. Tungsten sinkers are alot cheaper from an online store like Tour Tungsten than you can find anywhere at a retail store, on a 30 sinker order I saved a bunch of money over ordering them from Bass Pro and had then in my mailbox in 2 days where as a BPS order is usually 10-14 days.

Surprisingly the Ingles in Black mtn has a display with all the colors of Panther Martins I use......but I don't need any.

Gambusia, I just went to the Waynesville Bait and Tackle shop recently, good selection of bass and trout lures for sure, only thing I purchased was 4 flies I had been searching for awhile.( I was impressed with there flies and flyfishing stuff. The owner guy said if he didn't have it he could order it to the shop easy, kinda cool. It's worth the trip for sure. Also the Outpost tackle shop in Whitter, Jackson Co. has a really solid selection of spin and bait cast products. I stop in there a few times a year for some Cabin Creek soft-P jigs that slay smallmouth.

Most of it online. Rods and reels I first try to buy from a Tackle store on Hatteras. Just a personal pact I made with myself because of what the fed is doing with the beaches and fishing over there. I make sure I spend money on the island in person, over the phone, or internet.
