Another one of my favorite places to go at EI. Just a cool place. The fishing tackle is of course great, but wow the appeal is awesome! Just a fun place to visit, I've never had a bad experience and the staff is always, and I mean always nice.

Been here several times in the past years while on vacation ... went in today and the first person I noticed was not wearing a mask, but was receiving help from staff... was in the store for about 2 minutes and was told that I either needed a mask or to go outside... if I wanted to blindly shop a store from the parking lot like the employee said I could do, I’d soon stay at home and order online... double standard with the mask thing I suppose... but with that being said, I refuse to be a sheep and constantly breathe in my own CO2... I stay my six feet away from anybody else... but clearly their interpretation of the “guidelines” are not the same as mine or the other two guys that got kicked out behind me... I will not be returning to this establishment, ever

Had an amazing experience in this store. Very friendly folks with a great selection of fishing gear and anything you could need, for a day on the water or at the beach. 10 / 10 recommend stopping by if you're in the area

Are not following the EO properly. Will not allow those who have medical conditions to shop. The EO states clearly "does not require face masks for an employee, customer, or patron who: Has a medical or behavioral condition or disability." We shop here multiple times a year but we will not going forward. Nuese Sports Shop gets my business back home in Kinston and now will get it while we are here. Better inventory, friendly staff, and respect for their patrons. They don't take aways people's freedoms. UPDATE- since it will not let me respond. Accommodations made for those that can't wear a mask is a joke. That stipulation is for restuarants or online shopping. How the heck am I to shop when I can't see what i am shopping for and make my OWN decision on how to spend MY money. The only accommodation your making is allowing me to make the very easy decision to go elsewhere. Somewhere I am not discriminated. And as far as the 14 days, I know the closure is by your discretion. I have been an essential employee from day one. Our business does not close for the unavoidable positive of 1400+ employees. We close that area for 1 day to clean and go about business.

My son and I went in Reel Outdoors to buy some surf rods but was rudely kicked out for not wearing a mask (we both have breathing problems). We decided to go to Neuse Sport Shop and was very happy we did, much better selection and super friendly staff! If you haven’t shopped at Neuse Sport Shop you should check it out!

Reel Outdoors is a very nice tackle and clothing store and I have shopped here before. Today, I went in with my wife and son to purchase some tackle and clothing. While my wife and I both wore masks, our son did not. We were greeted by one store employee without a mask and exchanged hellos and went about our shopping. A young fellow then appeared and told us our son must have a mask. We explained to him that he had a disability and could not wear a mask. Despite HIPPA, we even offered to show proof, but to no avail. We then proceeded to exit the establishment and advised the clerks that they had broken the law to which the girl behind the counter said "ok." So not only was my son denied service even though the governors mandate says that those with medical conditions are excused from wearing mask, but under the Americans with Disabilities Act, he was denied service because he is disabled. With this sorry act of humanity, I will take my business elsewhere. Bait is widely available, and shopping online is cheaper.

10/10 must visit if you are in Emerald Isle. Super helpful staff with an extensive tackle selection. Everything from bait to boat repair and then some. I blew my baitcaster to pieces on my first morning, a quick trip to TRO, and I was back fishing before lunch. They will help repair gear, but I couldn't resist the great deal they gave me on a new combo. If you're an angler or even just a hobbyist in the area... CHECK THEM OUT.

We have a beach house and we always come here until today. My boyfriend went to renew his license for inlet and at the time not realizing that his was still good. Once we figured it out we called the store and they said come in for a refund. Because it comes up on the computer if the license is still good. They sill sold him one. We came in and got told completely differnt that there was nothing they could do. They have lost our business. We have spent hundreds at this store! I would not recommend this store for anyone due to lack of customer service and disrespect we got.

Anything you could possibly need for fishing, boating or just random beach stuff. My son needed some parts for his fishing rod and set. We came here because we knew they would have what we needed. They have been around forever and nice people when you ask questions.
