For over 28 years, Chris’s Bait and Tackle served the lower Shore with probably the best, most professional, and dedicated service of any business located here. But, after 28 years, the husband and wife team decided it was time to move on and do something new.
The shop has been sold to Oceans East, one of the premiere bait and tackle stores in Hampton Roads and the Outer Banks.
EO is open 6am -7pm Monday thru Saturday and Sunday 6am-6pm. Store manager Justin told us that they are still in the process of finishing the final touches and waiting on more inventory, but there is still plenty to come and check out.
Oceans East carries a superior line of fresh and artificial baits, but as always, the bunker goes fast.
OE also carries all of the top brands in rods, both salt and fresh, including top spinning and casting rods by Shimano, Penn, Billfisher, and Daiwa.
High end merch from COSTA, HUK, and YETI is also available.
As always, the staff is here to keep you up to speed on what’s happening in and around the shore.
Located at 28316 Lankford Hwy Cape Charles, Virginia, you can call (757) 331-3000 to get the 411. Or, see what’s happening on their facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Easternshorebait/
