Tackle Unlimited-Everything you need to catch the big one!

Great White Shark caught at The Point downtown Pittsburgh in 1969. Yep, I’m lying!

Tackle Unlimited located on Route 51 heading to Elizabeth, is an absolute fisherman’s paradise and would make my friend Leann’s year, if she wasn’t afraid to drive near cities or people. If you ever drive out past Century III Mall on Route 51 heading to Elizabeth, it’s hard to miss the Great White Shark mounted on the outside of the building. I think we’re gonna need a bigger boat.

I was fortunate to run into Tackle Unlimited’s owner Ed, and his right hand man Joe. Being an avid fisherman, I was amazed that places like this still exist in a market where we sell our souls to the big chains to save a few cents. Ed has been in the fishing tackle and supply business for well over 3 decades. Trust me when I say, he has the ball busting attitude and personality that shows it, and by no means is Ed shy at all. That being said, this was the place for me.

Tackle Unlimited has rows and rows of fishing supplies, lures, a huge wall with every known fly fishing accessory you could need, new and used fishing reels for fresh or salt water, and healthy live bait tubs. There was also a half a wall from the floor up of homemade sinkers. Who makes their own sinkers anymore? Ed and Joe do.

On top of the fishing supplies, Tackle Unlimited can rebuild and warranty pretty much every reel out there, re-thread and service your reel while you wait, fix broken or damaged eye holes (on the fishing pole “a holes”, not the real ones), gas and electric trolling motors, and gas and kerosene heaters.

Another cool thing about the shop is the fishing literature which brings me back to my friend Leann. Leann, they have books on how to fish for beginners, fly fishing, maps on local waterways, and maps to identify all fish in Western PA that Ed gave me that I forgot there. This is the ultimate fisherman’s paradise and one stop shop for all anglers of all ages and skill levels. Quit being a corporate chain whore and go give your money to Ed and Tackle Unlimited. If you don’t fish, you’re not American…Or at least not manly. Be a man.

  1. I love this!!! Can’t wait to get out and check this place out and get my hands on one of those local maps you speak of, because I am convinced that any good fishing spots in this area are kept secret! Perhaps you could be a good friend and give me a lift across town yourself, eh?
