I live in So Cal and I'm looking for the best deals on saltwater tackle? As an avid fisherman who also fishes freshwater I know that Tackle Wharehouse hands down has the best inventory and best price on freshwater tackle with free shipping on orders more tha $50. They also have HUGE sales on National holidays.

I am hoping to find an online saltwater dealer who offers things like free shipping for orders over a threshold amount and things like buy a reel and get spectra for free or similar deals? Does that exist in saltwater tackle?

Happy Insependence Day!

Thanks; Big Ed!

I think right here BD is best place... So many tackle ho's here with really nice gear that is constantly getting bought and sold, why not here if you are ok with used equipment.

I know charkbait locally is a nice online store with local ties. Depends what sort of saltwater hear you want as well.

I did NOT even know there was a buy/sale on BD? Thank you I have no problem finding a good deal on preowned gear in good shape.

Thank you; Big Ed!

    Pelagic outfitters on the east coast. I think they're an advertiser, great prices and free spectra on most reels.

    Another vote for Pelagic Outfitters. Spectra included on reels, and he fills them to the top. I've bought close to 20 reels from them, as well as a few rods, and have a few en route right now. Great guys to deal with.

    There is a place ... Name escapes me ... That has 20% off at Xmas. And no sales tax for CA residents. Also free shipping. That is about a 30% discount for folks here in CA.

    Pelagic Outfitters. Chris is a great guy and they will spool you up with line of your choice including braid when you buy a reel. I believe they still do anyway.

    I just bought a Saragosa 10000SW from Otto's Tackle in Sydney, Australia for $238US including shipping and tax. It arrived in San Diego in less than a week. It lists for $300+ anywhere else.

    I bought a halco roosta haymaker popper 190 from Otto's when there were no left in So Cal. $12 + $16 shipping. Haven't caught anything with it yet, but I can cast that thing a mile now!

    I got a Penn Fathom 30LD2 for $185 shipped, no tax. That was not full MSRP.
    Maybe that was on a sale then, because everything I see on there is pretty pricey with minimal incentives.

    Melton tackle is good, they support BD!

    Nothing wrong with Melton's.

    Your statement was incorrect, that's all. I don't know what they have now but I thought $100+ savings was a tad better then minimal.

    I'm saying that outside of a sale, Tackle Direct almost never has what I would consider good prices or deals. Other sites always have better deals.
