  • Captain Steve's shop is awesome! This is our 1st time fishing at Chincoteague. Jimmy at the shop was awesome. He got us the correct rig, showed us how to bait the hooks, and where to fish. My family had an awesome time catching croakers at the pier. Many thanks to Jimmy. I highly recommend this place and we will definitely be coming back again.
  • I've been coming to this shop for literally as long as I can remember. My earliest memories of visiting the island include Tom letting me help him set out the crab traps and surf rods when he opened up in the morning in exchange for bait when I was probably 10 years old. I came by again last season, 26 years later, and not only was he still there but he remembered me. He and his family have been a small part of my life and I was so happy to find that he was still there, and that I was able to introduce him to my wife and share some stories. They're wonderful people, and they deserve every good thing that comes their way.
  • It's just another gift shop attached to a tackle shop. The gift shop featured the inhumane sales of hermit crabs forced into decorative shells, with at least 30 crabs in a cage suited for maybe one or two. Crabs were forced to climb up the sides of the cage, many missing legs and claws (likely from having to cling to the wire mesh sides and getting poked by children). At least one crab was dead in the middle, with others struggling to get off their backs from having fallen. The cage smelled nasty and was poorly taken care of, and signs around the shop had plenty of typos and issues. It would be ill advised to give this shop business.
  • Great family owned shop! The only place we go to get fishing supplies on CI
  • A small store packed full of all kinds of goodness. Your one place stop for all things fishing. They are very helpful there.
