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.
Next to the
future Tackle Warehouse front door is the site of the bass test pond
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.
