The Outer Banks of North Carolina, a 200-mile string of barrier islands, filled with unspoiled beaches, multi-million dollar vacation homes and known as one of the country's best resort areas. But long before it became a hot tourist destination, fishermen from across the country flocked to the Outer Banks in search of one thing, world-class fishing. And one company is known as the place to go for fishing on the Outer Banks. TW’s bait and tackle.
My name is Terry Stewart, welcome to TW’s bait and tackle, here in Raleigh North Carolina on the North Carolina Outer Bank. We've been in this location for 20 years, to get your bait and tackle in Corolla there's a few choices but TW’s bait and tackle is the premier shop and it's been here longer than anyone else.
Fishing here, is legendary. The Outer Banks holds several records and is known as the bill fish capital of the world, whether fishing from the surf, dropping a line from one of the many fishing piers, exploring the sound or taking a charter to the Gulf Stream, anglers will find a wide variety of fish. Experienced anglers can find everything they need from a saltwater fishing license to top-of-the-line equipment.
I guess one of our biggest draws here in the TW bait and tackle is our fresh bait. Fresh bait is always the best thing to use on the beach to catch the most fish. We also have a lot of bottom rigs that we hand make ourselves and sell here in the store. We have hundreds of rod and reel combos anything from dial to pin to Shimano, Okuma, Shakespeare. We carry all the major brands and all different price levels. If you want to fish in North Carolina, you have to have a fishing license and we're the only location to sell fishing license within a 20 mile radius and the inside scoop on where the fish are biting.
When people come to the Outer Banks, they want to know what's going on in the fishing world. You can come in the store and ask we do daily fishing reports every day in the store or you can check our online report which is very popular, we've had as many as 16,000 hits in a day.
The same amazing fishing that drew visitors as far back as the 1920s, still remains but today over seven million people visit the Outer Banks for the summer vacations many looking to explore these waters and experience the thrill of some of the world's best sport fishing.
One of the things about vacationing on the Outer Banks and in Corolla is a family beach and most of the families are here for an entire week. Some of the family members will see every day and whether they came to the Outer Banks to fish or not, most of the time we'll end up seeing them in the store because they see people catching fish on the beach and want to try it for the first time and we're here to help. We have a lot of families that come into tws bait and tackle that have never fished or crabbed in their life, we can help them get rigged up with our knowledgeable staff.
