Westport/louisburgh bait and tackle

Postby Greendag » Fri Jun 29, 2018 4:18 pm

Hi folks, heading out Westport/Louisburgh direction for a few days, hoping to get a bit fishing in while I’m down there, just realized I’m short a bit of tackle and other bits and pieces, nothing major but will be looking to pick some up and a bit of bait as well.
I know there’s a surf/bike shop in Louisburgh that has a little bit of fishing gear and some frozen bait, no worms though last time I was in it.
Any recommendations for Westport?
Thanks

RBM is good. Friendly lads, will even deliver to you to avoid finding parking in the town!

For fishing tackle the best shop, albeit its a chaotic mess, is the large shop in Castlebar on New Antrim Street almost on the corner with Tucker Street.
Park in Supervalu. Not cheap but he has everything including stuff and brands I've never heard of...
