    We stayed at the Hyatt across the street and needed insect repellant. The owner and his son were out front watching the Coast Guard's morning flag raising. Great family business, and so helpful! Enjoy...  more »

    Super nice people called them to see if they were still open just as they were closing and they stayed open for me just to come get a couple things. I will remember this place and recommend it to anyone going to Marathon to do some fishing. The Ballyhoo were very fresh the pilchards were big and all did the job. Thanks again for the great experience see y'all next year !

    Great honest knowledge to assist tourists and locals alike. Chris took the time to answer all my questions on tackle, bait, and fishing spots based on the conditions. Even provided some wise advice on an upcoming snorkeling trip that could have turned out badly.

    Great bait shop that has everything you need. Live bait is hearty and you can get frozen to if that's your thing. Tackle is extensive and apparel is from name brands like Costa.

    Made a stop as I needed bait for my pier fishing. I asked what was biting the owner replied flukes and bluefish. Great I can catch dinner what do you suggest I use. Shiners for fluke bunker for blues nice so as I was going to grab frozen bunker I see fresh is available and peanut shad sweet. The staff asked how many bunker I wanted 3 I replied so 3 nice fatties were bagged up for me and taken to the counter. I brought a few rigs which I see they have all your needs rigs, hooks, sinkers and rod blanks and combos too. My next trip I will take a few in store pics I was just in a hurry. The staff were extremely helpful father said sir I can ring you up daughter reply Dad I have his bunker. I like that tug a war to help me now don't do that cause I can become spoiled very quickly. I will now use Tackle Box as my go to place when I hit Keyport, Keansburg Pier and Sandy Hook.
