Outer Banks bait and tackle shopsOuter Banks bait and tackle shops

Fishing is away of life on the Outer Banks, so it's no wonder the Outer Banks is one of the premier fishing vacation destinations on the east coast! No matter your fishing needs, you're sure to find it just around the corner from your Outer Banks rental home. The professionals working in Outer Banks fishing supply stores know their stuff - they can offer some great advice on surf, sound, pier, and charter fishing. Outer Banks bait and tackle shops on this page are arranged by town, north to south.

A Coastal Recreational Fishing License is required to fish on the Outer Banks. Children under 16 are exempt. An individual does not need a license for charter boat and pier fishing, which are covered by a blanket license. Anglers should know the current marine fisheries regulations, including size and creel limits.
