Welcome to Herrings Outdoor Sports

Topsail Island Beach Rentals, Kayak Rentals, Equipment Rentals, & Apparel

Come Let Our Family Get Your Family Ready For Fun At The Beach!

Our store is located on a barrier island on the southeast coast in the little town of Surf City, North Carolina. Topsail Island is a 26 mile island situated halfway between Wilmington and Jacksonville. Started in 1962 by Edgar "Johnny" Herring originally as a bait and tackle shop we were known far and wide for providing high quality fishing supplies, bait and friendly service.

The store has passed through the generations, expanded in size and product to include kayaks and quality outdoor apparel and gear. Herring's is now being managed by Mr. Ed's grandson Steve Bailey and wife Jessi who strive to preserve the comfort of the old store's tradition and friendliness while progressing the services and goods we provide our customers.
