A behind the scenes look inside Tackle Warehouse (continued)

While we thought the Tackle Warehouse section of the facility was already huge Rich remarked we hadnít seen anything yet and proceeded to roll up a door to reveal the Tennis Warehouse inventory location. With the door rolled up we could make out the profile of a few racks in the dark and Rich moved to the right and flipped on the lights to reveal rows upon rows of shelf space in a two tiered warehouse. It was absolutely massive, and when fully stocked with all the Tennis Warehouses inventory is going to look very much like a scene right out of Raiders of the Lost Ark.

So what is Tackle Warehouse going to do with all this newfound space? The retail store will be much larger and representative of the companyís robust product offering for starters. But it will be online customers that will benefit most from this larger more state of the art facility.

The added space means that the buyers will be able bring in more brands as well as branch out into new areas. Tackle Warehouse will expand into Redfish offerings and saltwater tackle is on the table as a possibility as well. The ability to handle larger and heavier items will also allow the company to spread out into marine offerings including boat supplies and trolling motors. The company will also be able to consolidate shipping resources with the other outdoor Warehouses and make faster shipments to customers.

A look upstairs, can you say "Raiders of the Lost Ark"

While the building is still a skeleton of the future facility the company hopes to move into the new location in August of this year. As we exited the facility Corey wanted to show us another new addition to the facility, a test pond. Directly to the left of the new entry way is a pond overrun with tulles. Corey explained how the team is planning to clean out the pond and convert it into a full fledged bass test pond where they could see how new products perform right outside the front door.

The guys sure know how to build a new office, and there is plenty of room to grow with the new facility. Rich hopes that this new location will serve as a more permanent home as the company has expanded so quickly. This facility is a far cry from the original location just down the street where Rich and Corey had to stock product in every nook and cranny including underneath the staircase and even in the restroom..

Back at the current facility we are met by Jared Lintner and get ready to go fishing

Time to go fishing: No TackleTour trip would be complete without a day out on the water and as we head back to the current office we planned out the next dayís trip. Rich had organized three boats to take us out to Lake Nacimiento an 18 mile long lake located in Northern San Luis Obispo. The lake is home to largemouth, spotted, and white bass. We would fish with Rich, the Tackle Warehouse crew, and professional angler Jared Lintner who had just returned from the incredible Falcon Lake Elite Series Tournament where he placed right behind Kevin Van Dam with a total weight of 71.8lbs.

Stay tuned for part 2 of our visit to Tackle Warehouse as we take to the water with Rich and Elite Series Angler Jared Lintner.
