About Us

Tackle Express was created in February of 2011 focussing on local waters like the famous Castaic Lake.   It was a very humble beginning with few products on the shelves and lots of empty floor space.  Prior to starting the shop, Chad Curtis was a landscape designer and contractor with a company that did everything from yard maintenance to patios and swimming pools.  His company employed up to 14 workers and office staff and worked in Beverly Hills, Santa Clarita, and the San Fernando Valley.  
Through hard work and saving every dollar he could, he left the landscape industry and began chasing his dream of owning a tackle shop.  It had been 20 years since the Santa Clarita Valley Ca. had a tackle shop and the population had grown to 200,000 people.  The need for a shop was there so he took a gamble with the support of his family.  His wife and kids helped him put a fresh coat of paint on the place, stock shelves, and open accounts with vendors.
Since then, the shop has grown and Tackle Express is now online selling fishing tackle and gear with the lowest shipping prices in the industry.  To give our customers the best value and motivation to shop at T.E., we offer $1.95 First Class USPS shipping under $50 and free shipping over $50.  With hope, they will gain your trust and support. We work hard to do that by hand writing a custom thank you on almost every package that goes out.
If you have any questions or need any help, Chad and Steven are more than happy to assist you either online or in the retail store.  They want to thank all their customers for their continued support over the years and they look forward to continued growth and success in the future.

Sale Events For In-Store
If Tackle Express is having a sale, you must mention the sale in store to receive the discounts.  Many times our sales are treated as coupons and must be presented as such with either a verbal or printed verification of our current sale.  Notification of the sale is the same as presenting a coupon and the lower price will be given.  

Guaranteed Lowest Prices
If you find a lower price, on any product we stock, please give us the opportunity to match it. As should be expected, there are some common sense restrictions that apply. We must be able to verify the lower price through a valid online website (Ebay auctions, Amazon, Craigslist etc. are examples of sites that we do not price match).

Lower prices that cannot be confirmed will not be honored. Please inform one of our knowledgeable staff members with the website where you found the lower price and once confirmed, Tackle Express will match it. A price match can only be applied for an item with the same specifications as the item on the competitor’s site. We reserve the right to confirm lower prices before any final Tackle Express sale. The source of a lower price must come from an authorized dealer within the United States of the product in question. If the price does not come from an authorized online source, current Tackle Express prices will be used.

Defective Products
If you think a product is defective, please ship it back to Tackle Express where our quality control department (Steven) will examine it and do the following: Consider it defective through Tackle Express standards, and immediately ship your replacement or refund your money. Or Contact the manufacturer to see if they cover the defective merchandise, then contact you with the information we have received.

Tackle Express does not allow the collection or sale of Personally Identifiable Information by third parties or online services. Your personal information will not be sold or given away.
