I look forward to seeing the remainder of the season play out and all of the big fish catches that will bring. On the horizon for this year, we are excited to announce that the largest distributor of tackle in Northern California – Tackle Tech – will be moving its headquarters from Manteca to Sacramento and continue to serve the Fisherman’s Warehouse retail locations, as well as many other retail dealers on the West Coast. These combined locations have been pleased to serve anglers for over 35 years!

The summer fishing season is finally here – something many of us have been excitedly waiting for during the forced hiatus. It is very nice to see some normalcy returning to our fishing industry. Thanks to all of our readers for sharing their fishing adventures in the forums.

    Hi All, I’ve said it many times; however, it is worth repeating... I cannot believe how fast the seasons fly by and fall and TOC time is once again upon us. I look forward to watching the championships play out and the new victors take their stage. With many of the schedules for the circuits already announced, it is exciting to again think of the events that will take place, especially with the Bassmaster Elite Series returning for a western swing. Will our hometown guys claim the trophies, or will a traveler take them home? I hope all of our readers in the fires areas a safe and speedy recovery back to your homes and business’s its just been a crazy year for these catastrophes and I know we just want to get them behind us!
