Freshwater Fishing Tackle

Many of us got our first taste of angling fishing in freshwater lakes, rivers and streams. If you did, you surely recall the memories of reeling in sunfish, yellow perch, white bass and other panfish with your dad or uncle. For lots of people, freshwater fishing can remain that simple. Others have taken it to a whole new level by competing in high-stakes bass tournaments with super-sophisticated equipment. Most of us probably fish freshwater at a happy medium between these extremes. We might enjoy a leisurely day of catfishing, the thrill of chasing walleye or casting for smallmouth bass on our favorite river or lake.

No matter what type of fishing you do, TackleDirect has the freshwater fishing tackle and accessories you need. Our collection of freshwater fishing rods, reels, lures, lines and terminal tackle features the most famous names in the fishing world. It won't take long for you to find freshwater fishing gear from big brands like Abu Garcia, Berkley, Shakespeare and Eagle Claw. But we also offer lesser-known brands that may be new to you but should be on your radar screen.

Our choices for freshwater tackle include a host of fishing rods from premium makers like Shimano and Daiwa. No matter what kind of fishing you do, you can find a rod to match your preferences. We have a wide selection of spinning and baitcasting rods in many lengths. From there, you can choose the power, action and technique you're looking for to narrow down your search. Delve further into our freshwater fishing gear and you'll find plenty of quality spinning and baitcasting reels to perfectly match the rod you pick.

Your line and leader, of course, are crucial components of your freshwater tackle arsenal. At TackleDirect, you'll find lots of choices of fishing line to suit your style and species. TackleDirect carries many types of monofilament in the right sizes and colors for freshwater fishing. This is the most common fishing line because of its flexibility and versatility. We also have fluorocarbon and braid for when strength, invisibility and UV resistance are bigger factors.

For the business end of your line, pick from an incredible quantity of lures in all shapes, styles and sizes to fool just about any fish that swims. We have topwaters as well as crankbaits, spinners, spoons and jigs to elicit a bite from the finickiest fish. If you're a dyed-in-the-wool bait fisherman or need to replace the hooks on your lures, we also offer an assortment of single and treble hooks in many styles and sizes. You can choose also from an outstanding collection of swivels, snaps, floats and other terminal tackle.
