Chris and his wife are both great people. There prices are great even for the keys. He has a lot of local knowledge and makes his own baits. He is the only tackle store I go to in Marathon.

Small Mom and Pop shops are where I like to shop and the Tackle Box is one of those. Store was clean, organized, and well stocked. The young lady behind the counter was friendly and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend supporting this business.

Female that was in the store was very nice, pleasant and helpful. The guy told me to buy some leaders and set me up for dock fishing. I went back after something was biting through the leaders. He then told me that the premade leaders he sells are junk and he was gonna "step me up to the big boys".... More

The owners make you feel like you've been friends for years. Store has always provided correct recommendations on what is fishing, biting, where and when to go. I get better advice on equipment, and rigs from this store then BassPro up in Islamorada. Chris has serviced many of my rods and reels and does a great job at a great... More

The people here are so friendly and willing to share information about the local area. This is very important when you are a stranger in town looking for fishing info. We took our time browsing, made some purchases and left feeling like we'll be happy to be back.

Visiting from Ohio and the fishing here is much different than on the lake. Chris was very informative and helped me get started with the basics. I even stopped back in and got some follow up tips.
