Due to a drunk driver hitting the front of the Stockade Tackle Shop on August 18th, stockade will be closed until the damages are fixed. I'm the owners nefew who had worked there with the owner/uncle. I'm sorry for the inconvenience, for ODFW licenses you can go to the recreation station in Reedsport.
No demand for sand shrimp???? Rockfish demand it. The people that fish them demand it. For a small fishing community like Winchester Bay. It's pretty pathetic not a single place carry sand shrimp all year round. Bites on bait and tackle in coos bay has shrimp has everything you can think of that you would need and than some. VERY VERY professional. And will never use the excuse not enough demand they carry year round. No excuse such as STOCKADE. I'd rather drive 25 min away to get what I need from professionals
Stockade Market and tackle is a great place. They have Crab traps, Clamming shovels and all the tackle you need as well as snacks. The staff are friendly and great to talk. Even the customers are friendly. A guy shared his donut breakfast with us as well as fishing stories. The crab tshirt logo is always a hit. My entire family has the smiling crab shirts. We've been given free advice, setup tips and we keep going back!! And the store has just been renovated
Mo is the best! He goes above and beyond to make sure you have a great time fishing and crabbing in Winchester. Always has what we need. A+++++. Would recommend EVERYONE to stop by and see for yourself. You won’t be disappointed.
Both Mo, and Pete are fantastic. These two are avid fisherman, and outdoor enthusiasts who are both friendly, knowledgeable, and combined, are more than a wealth of local fishing knowledgeable for saltwater, in addition to freshwater angling. I've purchased several books and have appreciated a great deal of their help.
