Shinnecock's Local Fishing Headquarters
We have a full service rod and reel repair and maintainance shop.
Rod tip repairs can be done while you wait in most cases. Missing or brokes guides (eyes), loose grips and reel seats can all be repaired.
Need new line, no problem. We stock a full line of both braided and monofilament lines. Most of the time we can do this while you wait as well.
Additionally our reel technician's services include yearly clean and grease, major and minor repairs and restorations, as well as a quick fix of a stuck drag or handle.
At East End we also build custom rods for the boat and shore bound angler. Each rod is laid out with the customer if they choose or we can build it to our recommended layout. All our rods are built on site in our shop. We do not farm out our work. We only use quality components, blanks, guides and reel seats, along with top notch winding threads.
At East End our feeling is; if we use the best components our rods will be that much better with little or no call backs.
Our best customer is a satisfied customer.
Our Rigging Dept. knows no bounds. They can tie inshore custom rigs to your specs or tell them what you would like and they will accomodate you. They can also rig (set up) your rods for a day on the water; striped bass, fluke, porgy, or any other local fish; they know what you need.
Offshore rod rigging is also available. Dacron to mono splicing, hollowcore braid to mono splicing, and bimini twist are all in our wheelhouse. We also have custom wind-on leaders and shark rigs.
