Chopper blues, Blackfins and Wahoos

Due to the beautiful weather we have had this past week, lots of folks were able to get out on the water and see just what was biting.  Many people fishing inshore along the beach and even off the surf are reporting fantastic catches of big chopper bluefish..  These larger bluefish can range from 4-12lb and can be caught on dead bait as well as big spoons or popping plugs..  Usually the larger bluefish show up a little in to the month of May but everybody has been enjoying the early showing..  I am still getting reports of a few drum and trout being caught in the Newport River.

Welcome to Saltwater Bait and Tackle.  We are a full service tackle shop specializing in CATCHING YOU MORE FISH.  We cater to the beginner to the most experienced and everybody in between. 


We carry a full line of inshore tackle such as Billy Bay, Fin-S, Berkley Gulp, MirrOlure, D.O.A., Hopkins and more.  In addition, we carry a full line of offshore tackle as well, such as Boscoe Lures, Laceration Lures, Fish Finder Tackle, Gaffer, Momoi, Jinkai, Ilander and tons more. We stock a full line of Bionic ballyhoo for all your offshore needs and carry shrimp, squid,  and mullet for all your inshore needs.


Here at Saltwater we strive to take the guess work out of fishing so you can fully enjoy the sport.  We will be happy to sit down and show you "hands on" anything you would like to learn.  If you've never been in our shop before, stop by, pull up a bar stool at our rigging bar, and let us show you why we would love to be YOUR tackle shop.
