Island Tackle and True Value Hardware is the place to go for your fishing needs. The store is locally owned and operated with a friendly staff that is eager to assist you in whatever you need. 
Their fishing center has everything needed for fishing from the beginner to the experienced fisherman. They carry major brands of rods and reels, fishing lures, lines and bait. For fishing off the beach it is recommended to use a 9 – 12 foot rod to get your line over the waves, fishing from the pier or from a boat a 6 – 7 foot rod is what could be used. They also have available, for this time of year, frozen bait such as squid, shrimp or mullet. When the warmer weather arrives they will have live bait such as mud minnows and shrimp.
Not to worry, the staff will help you with your fishing needs. They will be happy to recommend what types of rods and reels and accessories that are needed for the fishing you want to do. They are a licensed agent of North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission and carry fishing and hunting licenses and will help with boat registrations and are an official weigh station for International Game Fish Association. You must have a fishing license, whether you fish off the beach, pier or a boat. The cost for a 10-day salt water license is $5 for an in-state resident or $10 for an out-of-state resident; and if you want a year’s license it is $15.
