Ocean State Tackle is the best. Dave and Crew have consistently served any need I’ve ever had. Fresh bait, terminal tackle, very diverse selection of salt water lures, rods and reels. It’s truly a gem packed with inner city charm. It caters to it’s demographic but has something for everyone. Whether you need live eels, shiners, clams or need a rod or reel repaired, Dave will make it happen. His prices are extremely fair, cheaper than the big box / online stores. The best part is Sukha, the best dog you’ll ever come by.
