Well, it's finally happened. We have gone live with our new online tackle outlet store, More Tackle. In its infancy, we have started small with around 350 products, but will continue to grow and grow over the years to come. Our goal is to provide you with deep discounts on hard-to-find products that you have come to love over the years but can no longer find, either online or at brick and mortar retail stores.
To begin with, we have the following "departments:"
A lot of the items we offer have been discontinued, therefore the supply is limited. So it's first come, first served on those items. That's why you may not be able to find them anywhere else. But that's the whole idea. Have you ever noticed how you come across something that you really like after trying it ... only to find out that you should have bought the store out because they quit carrying it as soon as you went back for more? Well, that has happened to me so many times that I decided to do something about it ... or at least as much as I could without going into the manufacturing business!
Also, we will be carrying reconditioned rods and reels, which will all carry a 30-day warranty. And, if you prefer to either fix or build your own rods, we will eventually have one of the largest selections of rod components available online - at some of the best prices online, too.
Keep checking back with the site because stock will be constantly changing. So, if you're looking for something in particular, we might not have it right now but we could at any time in the future. Or, if you would like to be added to our mailing list, send your email address to CaptDick@MoreTackle.com so we can notify you of updates to the site. Let us know if there is anything special you have been looking for and we will try to locate it.
Remember, we're not looking to get rich. We just want to help provide you with a viable way to get items that you've missed at a price you can live with. When you go to checkout you will see that shipping has not been included in the product prices. We have done this because shipping prices vary according to location and total weight or size of package(s). Why should one person living in the next state have to pay the same as someone clear across the country? Also, this way you see your actual cost of the product(s) without extras added in. We only charge for shipping - no handling or packaging fees are added in.
That way you can get more, save more, and fish more ... with More Tackle.
I don't know if it's the rain we have been getting for the last two weeks raising the water levels, or the fact that the temperatures have not been too high because of the afternoon rains, or the fact that a rise in water level increases the forage. All I know is that the fishing is still great.
This 7/12 lb largemouth bass caught by Brian Futch of Mulberry, FL during our outing Tuesday morning, June 2, 2009, is proof that the big ones are still very active and "available."
If the rains keep coming throughout the rest of Spring and into the Summer, then this should be a good year for not only bass fishing, but the bluegill fishing will be picking up, beginning with the full moon tomorrow.
Don't forget to follow the law regarding daily catch limits ... and possession limits. These laws have been put into place for a good reason, so please respect them.
On another note, keep a watch out for our new online tackle outlet store, www.moretackle.com, which will go live some time this month. We will be offering great deals on some of your favorite tackle and specials on discontinued items that some of you have been asking for in various fishing forums. If there is a particular lure or other item that you really liked and wished were still available, send us an email at email@example.com and let us know. If we can get it we'll let you know personally.
This past season was yet another good one, although not as many people hiring guides to fish. The economy has taken a bite into the luxury of hiring a guide. Although I was able to take several of my yearly repeat customers on good producing trips this year.
As in last year, the swimbaits are still making a big splash: Bitter's Baits' Naked Swimmer, Reaction Innovation's Skinny Dipper, and Gambler's Big Easy. The frogs and toads have been running a close second. The multi-bait rigs have been going big this year, such as the Alabama rig, Mo-Rig and Mo-Bling. The only thing more fun than catching a bass, is catching more than one at a time! In the last month or so the bass have started schooling up, chasing bait fish up out of the cooler water and hitting them on top, making for some great top water action, when you can find them.
Everything I Ever Needed To Know About Life (& Fishing), I Could Have Learned From Noah's Ark...
One: Don't miss the boat. Two: Remember that we are all in the same boat. Three: Plan ahead. It wasn't raining when Noah built the Ark. Four: Stay fit. When you're 600 years old, someone may ask you to do something really big. Five: Don't listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done. Six: Build your future on high ground. Seven: For safety sake, travel in pairs. Eight: Speed isn't always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs. Nine: When you're stressed, float a while. Ten: Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals. Eleven: No matter the storm, when you are with God, there's always a rainbow waiting.
