We Have Fresh Pogies ( Menhaden)

We source our pogies and other live and fresh baits two or three times a week to insure you the best and most productive baits. Many retailers only buy pre packaged bait once a week from a wholesaler. Our brined pogies (menhaden) and wide selection of freshly packed live and frozen baits has built us a reputation for the best saltwater bait in RI and Southern New England. Saltwater Anglers from Springfield, Worcester and Boston Ma have relied upon Ocean State Tackle for more than a decade. Come see me Dave Henault and you will see why we are RI's leading bait and tackle shop.
Menhaden are considered one of the best baits for striped bass and bluefish. Menhaden can be fished whole or in chunks. Chunking with pogies has been one of the most effective means of catching bass in the Providence and Seekonk Rivers this spring. Place a chunk of pogey on a size 7/0, 8/0 or 9/0 bait holder or octopus hook use a fish finder rig with a 3 or 4 bank sinker and 40 - 65 lb braided line on a 9' - 11' surf rods.
