Anyone ever been there? Got a phone #, maybe a location? C&H Lures in Jacksonville told my Dad that Whalebone has THE best selection of sea witch heads in the world. I'd like to take a road trip and see what they've got.
Thanks in advance.

if its the one in nags head, its on the left going to manteo. i cant believe they've got the best seawitchs in the world or biggest supply? I'll stop by tomorrow and let you know(if its open when we pass through).

Been there and they don't have the best looking heads...lots of them but not that great. The finish of the paint is not good. Better off ordering carolina style heads off the web. They look and pull better. They do have really cheap old saltly planers and mold craft squids.
It's on on the bypass in nags head pass where you turn to go to OI. Maybe another couple hundred yards down on the left. It before you get to the Mateo bridge.
It's not worth a road trip but a decent place to go if in the area.........also have cheap seawitch hair.

Go to the Carolina Lures website.....I think Jimmy K sells them for the same price...but here is the site.
Whale Bone sea witch heads are bad!!!!!!!!!!!
Each head has a seam from the mold and burr's on the base of the head....
The burr's are so bad they will chaff your line
I had to use a razor kife to remove burr's...........An ice pick to clean up the line hole.
Frisco Rod and Gun in Hatteras has a Quality Sea Witch heads both the regular style and the carolina style. No burrs No seams very nice quality. [grin]
