This list is intended to provide a short list of tackle shops around the SA Metro area, as well as some online suppliers that I used to purchase products I have been unable to locate locally. I do try at all times to support local small business, but there are just some times where an online supplier is the only place I can source a particular product. If you operate a Metro area tackle shop and would like your store listed here, please feel free to contact the site admins, and your information will be added.
SA Metro stores
Fishing Wholesalers – Lonsdale. James, Mark and the other guys down at Fishing Wholesalers Lonsdale have an excellent range of products, brilliant product and location knowledge, and provide add-on services like spooling reels for customers, which I consider indispensable.
BCF – Boating Camping Fishing – My local is located on South Rd, but knowledgeable staff and reasonable prices can be found at all of their stores.
Spot On Fishing Tackle – Seaton. A great little family owned store with a great selection of combos, rods, reels and tackle. You can also head here for fresh packs of blood worms and sand worms, and some advice from well-informed staff.
Gotcha Fishing Tackle – Magill. Boss Trevor is an experienced angler, with lots of good information, and a good range of equipment.
Sport Fishing Scene – Cavan. Recommended as a great store serving anglers in the Northern metro area. If you’re heading up to Port Gawler, St Kilda or farther afield, drop in and check out their great range!
Online Only Tackle
I Love Hard Bait – eBay store. This is where I go to purchase Lucky Craft lures, they are very competitively priced with combined or free shipping on purchases of over 3 lures. The range is amazing!
Otto’s Tackle World – eBay store. I have purchased tackle and fish attractant called Sax’s scent, and their service has been exceptional. I strongly recommend using these guys if you’re after something you can’t find at your local tackle shop.
Australian Fishing Tackle Paradise – eBay store. I purchase my Daiwa fluorocarbon line from here and have also purchased a small range of selection of metal and soft plastic lures. Great service, and very well priced.
