    From an unbiased opinion. The Longfin in Orange and Sav-On Tackle in Sante Fe Springs have the best selection I have ever seen. Freshwater and Saltwater and misc. freaking everything. I would say they are 1a and 1b.

    Melton International is a high end saltwater tackle shop for sure. Not a great variety on lures or anything. Melton has alot of high end reels and rods. I live down the street from it.

    There is a cool old school shop in LB on Anaheim Blvd. next to Joe Josts. Can not think of the name. Anyone ?

    Also a good shop on PCH in Seal Beach. Also can not think of the name. Anyone? This shop has good deals on rods at the Fed Hall show usually. Also great intel on the local surf fishing and live smelt., e.t.c..

    Best shark fishing intel I ever got was at Charkbait in HB. Cool little shop.

    I may to stop buy Taka's for a browse and buy !!! Never been there. Man my wallet is itching.

    Want to make bait and keep it alive? Pacific Edge on Edinger in HB is the place to go. Very knowledgeable dudes there. If you can get them to share WSB or Halibut intel. take notes!!!

    The Longfin in Orange. Great group of knowledgable guys and selection. Meltons is too expensive. Their target market is the international angler with alot of money that will have it shipped. Not much of a local selection.

    Anglers Center in Newport beach is a good shop as well.

    no we dont do liscences, and our katella location does 99% walk in business
    the catalog shop on state college (not a walk in) is where we ship everything from and that goes worldwide not just florida.

    Meltons is exxxxxxxspensive! Jorge the statement about a big dick contest shows that you have no class as and Meltons has very little class for having you as an employee. Longfin off chapman and the 55 is an excellent tackle store, a tad bit exspensive but excellent people. Chark Bait is an all around excellet tackle store with great people and prices located at Heil and Bolsa chica in HB. Big Fish in Seal Beach is another good place, not so much tackle as really good people. There are actually quite a few good ones in Orange County. Good luck in your search.

    Longfin, say hi to Eric, he's super cool.
     
  16. If he wants to look at a lot of tackle (an a whole lot more), just take him to the Bass Pro Shop. From Anaheim or LA, you can be there under an hour.

    I know the demograhic Meltons targets. The only way the prices may be better is with the employee discount.

    The local target here in SoCal is not their forte. You know that most of the business is big game tackle for billfish. Just look through the lures section on the website.

    youre right on the money, but if you pick up the phone you'll see that we'll match anyone else's advertised price.

    longfin, anglers center, taka etc. all great shops run by good people. we have no hatred for anyone else in the business. everyones trying to make a living.

    Lot's of great shops, but I would definitely recommend a visit to the Longfin. Very competitive pricing, and will match advertisers pricing, so how can you lose? What I like best about the Longfin? They don't loss leader you in with a rod/reel etc, then gouge you on terminal tackle. Pricing is fair all around the shop.
