Made several trips with my grandson to pick-up bait, buy taclke , get advice on fishing locations and what is/is not biting. I even had two of my rod/reel set ups repaired. The service was excellent, the costs very reasonable. The place even had some of old salty dogs hanging around. Nice, nice, nice.

I have been to Watch hill outfitters many times and each time Mike gives me great customer service first thing. Also I might add, Mike lets me in on his secret fishing stop for that day/ season and weather conditions and what bait or choice lure. Great guy knowledgeable staff everything you need to make your trip a success.
