Freshwater and Saltwater Terminal Tackle Good terminal tackle is an often overlooked component of successful fishing. Like linemen in the world of football, hooks, sinkers and other terminal tackle are the unsung heroes of sport fishing. Properly operating terminal tackle should do its job so well that you don’t notice it. At TackleDirect, we carry a variety of terminal tackle ranging from leaders, sinkers and hooks to floats, drone planers and downriggers. We offer terminal tackle from leading names in the field such as Mustad, Owner and Sampo. Although terminal tackle is often the least expensive part of a fishing rig, it’s the link that can make the difference between catching and landing a fish, losing a fish or getting the skunk.
Freshwater and Saltwater Hooks The hook, of course, is the first and most important contact point between fisherman and fish. At TackleDirect, we carry premium hooks that will help you hook and land any fish in fresh, brackish or saltwater. Our hooks come from famous manufacturers like Eagle Claw, Gamakatsu, Mustad, Owner, and many others. You’ll find J hooks, worm hooks and a host of other hooks in a range of sizes to catch anything from a bluegill to a blue marlin. For those who want to release their catch unharmed, we also offer a full roster of circle hooks.
Freshwater and Saltwater Snaps, Swivels and Rings Snaps, swivels and rings are other links in the fishing chain that connect you to the fish. At TackleDirect, we have quality snaps and swivels that will provide strong but hard-to-see connections between your line and lures or baits. Our rings are ideal for replacing or upgrading the rings that attach hooks to your lures. We also carry a variety of egg sinkers to keep your bait at the right depth unobtrusively.
Downriggers and Planers If you want to fish deep, where fish often congregate especially during extreme temperatures, you could use wire, lead line or heavy lead “cannon balls.” But if you’d like to avoid those hassles, TackleDirect has alternatives. Our downriggers get your lures and baits down easily and quickly to where the fish are swimming, letting you enjoy fishing more. Check out our planers for another lightweight option to heavy lines and leads. We also offer a variety of floats for keeping your bait at exactly the depth you want it.
