My dad use to shop there all the time, in fact bought a boat there. I remember going there with him but not sure of the location but Jim Miller sounds correct. They are no longer in business.

Joe Axton had a tackle shop in Mesquite before he moved to Lake Fork.

Probably ebay is your best bet now for that.

T C Hall at one time had two locations in Pleasant Grove. The tackle shop in Mesquite was Jim Vicks. I thought at one time that Lance Vick was his son but when I asked Lance he said he did not know Jim. Jimmy Smith is still married to Bunny and is a very popular guide on Tawakoni.
