The Dakota Tackle's bobber sign is iconic on the Bismarck Expressway.

Long before I even moved to Bismarck, I would make a point to stop at this mom-and-pop tackle store for their BIG selection of tackle.  They really do have a wide array of tackle and other fishing equipment that's not easily found in our area.

I first found out about Dakota Tackle going up for sale a couple of years back.

As being a customer of theirs I approached the owner about the possibility of being an influencer for them on the radio.  He said he loved the concept except for one problem.  He was putting his business up for sale.  Not long after, for sale signs were erected outside the building

Since then, Dakota Tackle has been up for sale now for going on a couple of years.

Well, according to a post on the Dakota Tackle Facebook page, it appears the business is no longer for sale.  Instead, it looks like Dakota Tackle intends to close.  They are liquidating everything in the store.

The post reads, "The Dakota Tackle Closing Sale".  All tackle and gear are now 50% off.  Electronics are priced at cost or below.  All sales are final.

Yep, that sounds like this business is closing its doors for good.  I know a lot of fishermen like me will be sad to see Dakota Tackle go.  They really do have a lot of hard-to-find fishing gear that you just don't see in other places. We wish them the best.
