The Fish Wrap Writer Recommendations
We at the Fish Wrap Writer are asked often about what tackle shops to visit, what gear we use to catch fish, what stripers are biting on in the fall, etc. We do our best to provide tackle shop and lure info in our fishing reports we post weekly, but we also wanted to provide a comprehensive list here as well.
Additionally, there are some amazing organizations in Rhode Island that help protect our waterways and fishing environments. Check out some of my favorites below.
These are the places I shop in New England when needing bait, lures, rods/reels, swag or more often than not, some great local fishing and hunting advice. To see a complete list of tackle shops in Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts, click here.
I’m rarely – if ever – out on the water fishing in Rhode Island without these brands of equipment with me.
