Other tackle store besides TW

Recommended Posts

Wondering what other tackle shops people shop at online? I was looking st Tackle warehouse and they don’t have some of the colors im looking for in a bait. I would rather not buy 2 lures from this place and 2 from here and 1 from another etc etc. just wanna buy it all from one.. any other decent providers out there ?

I recently used FishUSA for my first ever online fishing supplies order (I like to buy everything in person). Their selection was huge, prices good, and shipping fast and well packaged. I, too, had to look outside of TW because they didn't have everything I needed.

Seems to be a huge problem with TW lately. I have been drawing away from them myself because nothing I want is ever in stock.

Local tackle store.  They can order whatever you need if they don't have it in stock.

This was my first thought since we have two pretty good Marine/tackle shops in my small town. I was told they couldn't do it unless it was a big supply in bulk. But that seems to only applies to baits only though.

You'd be surprised at what you can get off eBay too. Lot's of tackle shops on there that offer great prices and decent shipping rates, even if you're only buying one lure.

Tackle Warehouse is always my go-to, but if they have a lot of stuff back-ordered, or I "NEED" a certain item, I'll look elsewhere. Places I've used before....

 

Outdoor Pro Shop

Tackle Supply Depot

Carolina Fishing Tackle

The Hookup Tackle

Last Chance Tackle

The Tackle Trap

Fish USA

Turner's Outdoorsman

 

and I'm sure I'm forgetting a few

 

I've got a few local shops near me that I'll give business to for live bait and small last minute items (maybe I ran out of some worms). I almost always do online for bigger orders though. 

 

Also pretty much all Reel orders I do through Ebay now, the discounts are just too good to pass up when they happen.

For all of your Zoom products and colors, plus special runs and Zoom baits headed to South Africa and Japan, contact Fred at http://virginiaguidebaitco.com/

 

Check out their catalog.

 

Their prices are in line with the tackle shops but they have all of the colors and styles you would ever want.

Thank you everyone I found what I was looking for. Tackle warehouse has 99.9% of everything but I was looking for a color of the pompadour they didn’t have in the regular size that’s all. Hope the pompadour is a good as everyone says .. thing looks crazy

I try to shop at my local tackle shop, but have ordered from Fish USA and been happy with them.

I'd love to support local tackle shops more, but they seem to always be so overpriced and have very little in-stock of what I actually need. I get it's super costly to have a ton of overhead in having every bait in every color, but how can I shop there if they don't even have the basic's that I use at a reasonable price? I don't mind paying 50c or $1 more for a lure or some plastics, but the one shop by my house is selling most plastics at a $2-3 mark up and they only have one or two colors. Forget actual hard baits. Like you, I just go there if I am taking a cousin out and need some worms or shiners for her.

I try but most of the good ones have closed that are near to me.  The best I have around is DSG and that is not saying much.  My hope is that someone will open a new shop.

Always support your local shops when you can because if they go out of business, you may not have access to quality gear except through online.

I buy a lot of my baits off Ebay. You can often find them cheaper than normal price with free shipping if you look around a little bit. Last week for example, I've been wanting to try a 75 Plopper but didn't want to put together a whole TW order. Got on the Bay and found them for a dollar cheaper a bait with free shipping, got in the day I was going fishing and got to put it to good use the day I got it.

I wish I had two half a**ed shops near me. Local I have a Wally World and DICKS, frustrating to go to because they have a whole lot of nothing. I think across the country all WW and DICKS are not created equal. Some guys have good ones. 

 

It appears that BPS and Cabela's are into thier own house brands more than ever. Name brands they have priced through the roof. I'm not into that so I've put on a boycott.

 

TW has been my on-line go to. For the most part I call my stuff in. There are a couple of guys there that are decent to talk to and helpful. Certain times of year with the holiday sales prices can't be beat. **F has worked out well but don't seem to use them. 

 

When I do a bit of a road trip to fish the lower Susquehanna I stop into SB&T on my way home. They are the best mom and pop shop I've ever been in. I think they are set up on-line also but have not tried that route. They have a nice selection of Robo Worm in the shop.

+1 on local tackle shop.  Yes they are more expensive, but if your face becomes familiar there are some perks you can't buy online.

I've pretty much stopped buying from both stores as well. They usually don't have all of what I need, if they do have it it's marked up, and it's a decent drive to get to the nearest one.

I've used susquehanna, outdoor pro shop, manventureoutpost, FFO, outlet b&T.  I also have a good local independent tackle shop in town that stays pretty well-stocked, and sells a few things by small regional tackle makers. I'll order from cablelas or BPS if they have a good sale on something I want, but I prefer other places.
