Chesapeake Bay and Mid-Atlantic Tackle Shops

When it comes to getting fishing gear you have oodles of options at local bait and tackle shops throughout the Chesapeake Bay and Mid-Atlantic region. Of course, buying bait and gear is just one reason to visit a tackle shop. These stores are staffed by anglers who talk fishing day in and day out with all the customers who walk through the door. So a visit to the tackle shop isn’t merely shopping trip, it’s also an opportunity to gather more intel about the latest bite and the hottest lures. In fact, as we put the FishTalk fishing reports together each and every week we call shops throughout Maryland, Delaware, and Virginia to get their input along with all our other sources. And we regularly find that tackle shops can offer up some of the latest, most accurate information. The tackle shops you’ll find below offer all this, and even more: they’re also FishTalk supporters. They help us publish FishTalk magazine every month, maintain this website, and bring you our fishing reports. If you love FishTalk we hope you’ll make the choice to shop at one of these shops in specific — and be sure to tell ‘em FishTalk sent you!
