The Tackle Box

We are so fortunate to have milder winters here in the

Lowcountry. If January is any indication of how February

and March will be, we will continue to have days that are

easily spent outdoors. As always, look to the Tackle Box

as your source for outdoor activity options. Rent a boat

for a leisurely cruise or fishing around the lake. Dennis,

our Nature Guy is very helpful with giving fishing tips to

people of all skill levels and can recommend the best bait

and lures to use any time of the year. Attend one of his

lectures that he gives regularly at the Fishing Club meetings

in which he covers the latest techniques and fishing topics.

An overnight stay at The Outpost on a mild winter evening

is also a fun outing with family and friends.

We continue to carry Hampton Lake logo clothing and

accessories for all the family. Look for exciting new items in

store for March. Need a thank you gift for someone special

or your favorite host or hostess? We have area books,

unique table top and gardening items, candleholders,

picture frames and more. We will be hosting fun store

events starting in March and throughout the year including

visiting artists, authors and local craftspeople. Look for

details in the upcoming Weekly Updates. Have a suggestion

for an item you would like us to carry? Be sure and let us


Stop by for a complimentary cup of coffee or tea and find

out what’s new or contact The Tackle Box at 843.836.7458.

Complimentary weekly guided boat rides will resume in
