Fishing Rods

Fishing rods are generally very flexible and at the same time durable. They are made typically of fiberglass or graphite which is a light weight material that allows you to cast your fishing line further and deeper into the water. There are plenty of rod and reel combos that you can choose from so inquire before purchasing.

Fishing Reels

As for a fishing reels, they are lightweight and affordable. Our spinning reels are quite versatile as they can be good for fishing from the shore or from a boat. We stock plenty of low cost budget friendly spin casting reels so inquire about purchasing a stand alone fishing reel or a combo kit with rod and reel together.

Fishing Line

Many of the types of fishing line we sell are classified based on their castability, visibility, and elasticity. You will choose specific lines depending on which type of fish you want to catch. Rough conditions may call for heavier  fishing lines while clear waters and calm conditions may require stealthy thin line.


You will most likely want to stock up on an assortment of fish hooks to catch many different types of fish and sizes. Some of the various types of hooks are single, double, circle, and treble hooks. Find out how you can set the hook from your Bras d’Or Marine fishing specialist today!


Fishing lures are actually just artificial bait designed to mimic real fish in the water. So you should keep an assortment of fishing lures in your tackle box, using different ones for different varieties of fish and water conditions. For instance light colored lures are great for bright days and clear water while dark lures may be better for cloudy days and in murky types of water.


When fishing you may find that some types of bait will make your line spin  and get twisted. A swivel was designed as a type of connector between your line and bait to allow the bait to move freely in the water and not get all twisted up with the line. The swivel itself has a loop on each end, but you can include a snap to help save time and effort in attaching different lures, baits, and lines.

Tackle Box

The tackle box is where you will be storing all your hooks, line, sinkers, lures, bobbers, and pliers as well as any other small tools you want to bring along. It is a great place to keep everything organized and something that is easily accessible from the shore or in a boat.
