Bernie’s Bait & Tackle, located in the heart of Sheepshead Bay at 3035 Emmons Ave., has been as icon in the local fishing community for some 50 years. Named for the original owner the shop has moved (only across the street and two blocks west) from the original location to accommodate a huge inventory of bait and fishing tackle.
Bernie’s has a variety of name brand rods to choose from. Name brands include: G. Loomis, Shakespeare, Tsunami, Lamiglas, Penn, Shimano, Fenwick and many more. If you still can’t find the perfect rod one of Bernie’s expert custom rod builders will build one to your liking.
You will find Reels by Van Staal, Shimano, Penn, Accurate, Daiwa and Abu Garcia to name a few. If you need to tune up or fix up your old reels, Bernie’s has plenty of reel parts in stock for do it yourselfers and expert mechanics on staff for the rest of us.
Bernie’s always has the freshest Bait in season including Live Eels, Live Shiners, Live Worms (Blood, Sand, Red, and Earth), Fresh Bunker and a complete selection of fresh frozen baits.
