A Family Owned Shop

Come visit a local family owned business… Cow Harbor Bait & Tackle in Northport, Long Island NY.

We started this business because we love our small town lifestyle and desired to find a positive way to give back to our community while trying to support our family.

Owners Mark & Phil McGowan along with their staff are ready to greet you with the freshest bait, expert advice, rod & reel repairs, plus the most up to date fishing reports.

Cow Harbor has the freshest bait in the area and the best prices.

“We’re worth the trip & regard customers as friends”   

The Service Department is open all year long for rod & reel repairs including custom rod building.

Reel repairs include a complete tune up with new oil, grease & polish.

Our custom rod shop completes many types of repairs, restoration work on older rods & custom builds. We accept rods & reels shipped to the shop for servicing & will ship back to customer.
