Tackle

We provide top quality Helly Hansen rain gear and Viking rubber boots so you don't have to travel with yours.
Our rods are mostly Lamiglass and Phenix and are excellent fishing rods.
We maintain our Shimano, Penn and Diawa reels to the highest standard and have them rebuilt often. They will be clean, free of defects and operating perfectly or we will slap a new one on immediately.
Both the braided Powerpro and P-Line mono we use are among the best in the industry.
The Salmon fishing bait is mainly cut-plug herring with Owner hooks.
The Rockfishing jigs are mainly Point Wilson darts or rubber tails with bait.
The Halibut gear is mainly cut bait with circle hooks.
