Briney's Bait and Tackle appears to be what is left of a pre-War bait shop that also offered coolant refills for nuclear-powered cars. It consists of a single, heavily damaged building with two outhouses. The western wall is destroyed and booby-trapped with a wire-triggered gun trap. A Nuka-Cola vending machine may contain up to six randomly generated bottles of Nuka-Cola, but there is little loot otherwise. Someone did leave a sleeping bag open on the floor amid the debris.
During the Sole Survivor's first visit, a leveled hermit crab is lurking between the car wrecks near the coolant pumps. Afterward, the place may be populated by Trappers or a pack of feral ghouls instead.
