The Amagansett Sportfishing Association and The Tackleshop are looking for used baseball gloves and balls to be sent to the kids of the Dominican Republic to help support baseball in one of the poorest counties in the Caribbean. Any donation will be welcome with open arms!

On eastern Long Island (East Hampton, New York) , striped bass, bluefish, weakfish, false albacore, fluke, porgy, bonito, black sea bass and black fish as well bluefish snappers and blowfish are the major inshore fish. Shark and tuna are offshore. The tackle shop can show you how to catch all these fish. Just ask, you may even learn how to cook and serve your catch or get a recommendation for a restaurant to do it for you!

The tackle shop carries the freshest squid in town fresh off a friend’s boat as well as spearing, bunker, clams, chum, sand worms, and earth worms (freshwater). And if you can't catch the fish on your own, Captain Harvey L. Bennett can take you fishing. The tackle shop offers a complete guide service from inshore lite tackle/fly fishing and porgy/fluke fishing to off shore for tuna and shark. Harvey also ties and sells custom saltwater flies, as well as building custom rods. Harvey once held the fly rod igfa world record for peacock bass. The tackle shop offers fly tying lessons as well as fly casting lessons and fishing lessons in general. Check out our videos on YouTube.
