New Tackle Shop

I don't how many of you read the "Main" Message Board, but word is out that Whalebone Tackle has been bought by Oceans East. Oceans East is a great tackle store up in Virginia on Route 13 (Northampton Blvd) just before the CBBT. The rumors have it that they will occupy the other half of the brand new Nags Head Sherwin Williams Paint store. Sorry to see Billy or as some call him Willie close. He was an institution down there on the Causeway. Oceans East is a fine operation but that special old time, very local quality about Whalebone will be lost forever. If, if they occupy the new location it might have better parking, especially for trailered boats. Good luck to both

Is OE going to keep the same building at Whalebone? I hate to see another historic structure torn down. I thought Gary Oliver owned it.

Whalebone is (was) owned by Billy McCaskil an Outer Banks old timer. Gary Oliver owns Fishing Unlimited by the "Little Bridge"
