FishUSA Celebrates Grand Opening of Kayak Fishing Outpost

FAIRVIEW, Pa. [March 7, 2019] – ​FishUSA​ ®, America’s Tackle Shop ®, invites the local community to the grand opening of its industry-leading Kayak Fishing Outpost.

In 2018, FishUSA was thrilled to add fishing kayaks, paddles, trolling motors and more – along with in-house and Pro Staff expertise – to our lineup. As America’s Tackle Shop, accommodating the wildly popular and rapidly growing kayak fishing segment is paramount to our mission of being the nation’s leading online supplier of sport fishing tackle and related products.

Jeff Parnell, the company’s President and CEO, points out that “for the past year, our acceleration into kayak fishing has been a strategic next step for FishUSA. For almost 20 years, we’ve provided expertise and world class service to anglers across the Great Lakes, the U.S., and the world, and growing numbers of kayak anglers realize that we now offer an outstanding product selection that addresses their unique needs.”

The Kayak Fishing Outpost (KFO) boasts a selection of fishing kayaks from popular brands like Hobie, Bonafide and NuCanoe. Essential kayak fishing accessories from Torqeedo, Bending Branches, YakAttack, NRS, Anchor Wizard and more are readily available for demo. In addition to products, FishUSA will offer wrap, electronics, fish finders, anchoring systems, pedal drivers and rudders, and other basic installations.

“We want the KFO to be your one-stop-shop for all things kayak fishing – where you can not only buy your accessories, but have them installed on your kayak that day,” says FishUSA’s Kayak Fishing Specialist, Brandon Ryan. “We also want all anglers to find

success on their next adventure, which is why we’ll soon offer one-on-one kayak demos on the water.”

To celebrate the grand opening of the KFO, FishUSA’s Pro Staff member and Kayak Bass Fishing’s founder, Chad Hoover, will be in attendance. According to Chad, a kayak fishing industry pioneer, the partnership between FishUSA and KBF is symbolic of FishUSA’s growing commitment to this growing market. “The team at FishUSA has built an amazing reputation in the fishing tackle industry, and we’ve been partnering to build the world’s best assortment of kayak fishing products.”

“We’re very excited to work closely with Chad on growing the sport of kayak fishing and making FishUSA your one-stop kayak fishing shop,” adds Ryan. “Chad’s expertise and knowledge has not only been instrumental in developing anglers nationwide, but also in the creation of our industry-leading KFO.”
