My boys are fishing fanatics and Ed really made the vacation for them. He was knowledgeable and personable - which seems to be a theme with many of the shopkeepers in Duck. Be sure to visit Bob's Bait and Tackle for all your fishing needs.

Nice guys who know the area fishing. They readily share what their knowledge and have a large assortment of rods, reels and tackle. They also charter fishing boats.

Super helpful staff. Set us up with supplies and locations to go crabbing with the kids. Located right in the middle of Duck downtown, easy to get to. Bait available- one stop shopping.

I had never gone fishing before... I walked in and was greeted by Bob's incredibly friendly staff, they taught me step by step what to do in order to get my kids out fishing... We ended up having a great time!

Hadn't surf fished in years and the guys at Bob's hooked me up with the right bait, rigs and tactics. Had a lot of success and really added a lot to my vacation!

Will get you set up on a charter adventure or teach you how to catch the big fish on the surf or sound. Best rod and reel, tackle, and bait prices on the beach.

Bob's bait and tackle was extremely helpful to me as I was arranging fishing charters for my family's vacation. They made the process simple and easy for us. They connected us with an excellent captain/fisherman Dave. We did two trips: one full day and one half day. Each day we had a successful catch despite conditions that were not ideal... More

Located in the walking-area of the quaint village of Duck - full-service bait & tackle shop - also fishing charters - Bob's is a great addition to the vacation agenda when on the Outer Banks!

These guys go out of their way with sales & advice. We're fishing novices & feel welcome & educated. The quality & options for rods are top notch & there's always a special. Our first time out husband was surf fishing (catch/release) & caught 2 small nurse sharks at dusk ...

If you are in my baby boomer generation, you should recall something called a tackle shop. Now in most cities you have Walmart, Bass Pro Shop, or Dick's instead. Bob's is a throwback to the past. The staff are friendly and glad to give advice on the local fishing scene to their tourist clientele. They have a wide range of... More
