Your Local Fishing Store
Big box stores and sporting superstores might carry everything you can think of for nearly any outdoor sport imaginable. Some even have a decent selection of fishing gear, but they’re missing something important.
More than just the outdoors.
Al Ipema has been fishing his whole life. He has been everywhere from upper Wisconsin, all the way down to Florida, and everywhere in between. Visiting the local bait and tackle shop is always part of the trip for him.
He’s been fishing the ponds around the south suburbs since he was a kid. Al and his wife, Tara, bought The Anglers Outlet because they wanted to keep the small bait and tackle shop alive. There are plenty of places you can go to get a fishing pole or some bait, but they wanted more than that.
A place for people who love to fish.
The local bait and tackle shop is where people who love to fish go to talk about all things fishing. What’s biting today, where the hot spots are, what events are coming up. It’s also a place where you can go to learn more about fishing and get help without feeling pressured to buy a bunch of equipment. At The Angler’s Outlet, we have a team of knowledgeable staff members who are passionate about fishing.
Jason Sokol is a local panfisherman who loves to follow the big crappie and bluegill bites throughout the season. He is always happy to help you get your panfishing fix and to talk fishing.
Josh Sokol is a local bass tournament angler who competes in many local trails, including the Cal Sag Bass Anglers. He also fishes regionally, primarily focusing on MLF BFL’s. Josh is always happy to assist you, whether it be advice or getting you geared up for your next time out. He specializes in bass fishing but can also help you catch a variety of species.
We want you to love fishing as much as we do!
