History of Dogfish Tackle Co.

In 1984, I moved from Wisconsin to Florida.  I enjoyed fishing and quickly became a regular at the Redington Long Pier.  I don't recall why, but my friends on the Pier started calling me "Dogfish Bob."  Soon, my love for fishing led me to  open a tackle outlet.  I needed a name and decided to use what was given to me by my friends. Thus, the "Dogfish Tackle Company" was born in 1985.  By 1988, I moved my dream to Redington Shores right across from the Long Pier where my nickname "Dogfish" originated.

Our old store in Redington Shores, across from the Redington Long Pier.

Over the next 17 years, the "Dogfish Tackle Company" grew and grew.  We came to offer the finest rod and reel selection on the west coast of Florida, and also created our own original fishing rod masterpiece, the Dogfish Stik.  But, eventually, we outgrew our location. So, in November 2005, we moved to Seminole, FL to open our super center where our product selection is second to none!  We take great pride in our products and service and strive to satisfy every fishing need.
