Sportsmans Emporium (tackle store), Crenshaw and Pico. Lasted about 3 years. Worked there wrappin rods, ringing up stuff. Maybe back in the 70's. I got some fond memories of Wylies back in the surf perch derbies days.

Redondo pier and jetty fishing.... A clear bubble half filled with water, 2 barrel swivels 3 feet of line and a small white feather (Tiny tot) and hold on.... Benito city.

Brought to you by a late 1960's early 1970's flash back.

Humes Sporting Goods in Burbank, on Victory Bl, Bunkers Fishing Tackle, on Victory, J&M Tackle on Lankershim in North Hollywood. Bought my first combo rod and reel at Gemco in North Hollywood; it was a Roddy rod, and Mitchell reel.

Kaya's Fishing Supply on Kekaulike St, Honolulu, just across the street from Honolulu Harbor. Started going there since I was 12, 1966, they had everthing from crab nets to hand made spear guns, ulua hooks and bamboo poles; it was a Hawaiian Squidco!
We would go get Aku belly at the market up the street for $.05 a piece. Then go to Kaya's get hooks, a dozen for $.15 and lead go across the street and catch Baracuda, Papio, Lai, Moi and the ever present baby Hammerhead sharks.
Last time I was in Honolulu, 2007, I was surprised to see that little store was still going strong!
The store opened in 1911!

Ken, the only tackle store I ever went to on the Big Island was Tokunaga Store in Hilo. Didn't matter when I went on the Island, stocked up there, first. Most of the tackle stores that I know about on the Kona side are all geared to big game fishing like Melton's and Pacific Rim Fishing Supply.
Unless you talking about Pearl's in Kealakekua, never been there, though.
