Fishing Tackle & Gear Experts Seek to Capitalize on Freshwater Marke
Loxahatchee, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/09/2016 -- Not all fishermen are created equal – some prefer the deep sea, others enjoy a calming fly fishing trip, while still others prefer to take their boat out on the local lake and catch bass, crappie, catfish, perch, and more... At the end of the day all fishermen simply want to have a great catch, and the proper equipment can help them make that happen. Selling great tournament quality tackle is what South Florida-based Fishing Tackle Depot does best, especially when it comes to specialized equipment fishermen won't find in most tackle stores. Recently they've taken their expertise to the freshwater with the creation of a new domain: www.bassfishingdepot.com. This arm of the business will cater to the freshwater anglers in the industry, and help them do what they do best out on the water, catch fish!
Founder and owner of Fishing Tackle Depot Mickey Oliphant is a native Florida resident who grew up around the water and the fishing industry. His dad was in the boating business, so naturally Mickey absorbed plenty of knowledge on boating and fishing over the years. These days his vast amount of experience is put to use by customers everywhere, who come to him either in person or via phone call with all kinds of questions. It is that knowledge and interaction with others in the industry that has afforded him numerous valuable points of contact. Many large and small tackle manufacturers trust Fishing Tackle Depot more than other, the bigger stores & tackle suppliers because of the personal service at the Depot. As a result, Fishing Tackle Depot carries a substantial amount of specialty products not found in other stores. From distinct lures and tackle to specific types of hand- made rigs and lures – they truly do it all.
"I've always maintained an open door policy with my customers and partners – I enjoy giving them the opportunity to ask questions and learn about areas of fishing they never knew before," explained Mickey. He continued, saying "Expanding into the freshwater market is exciting, especially because it is an entirely different market, and while some of the tackle goes both ways, a lot of it does not."
