Everything was delivered timely as expected and was quality product. I work as a purchasing manager when I am not out fishing and I am very sensitive to customer satisfaction which is inclusive of price, quality and speedy service. SRMO provides all of these and I will continue to spend my money with you. Last year I purchased two Penn 975LD's from you and no one came close to your prices. The pricing in your catalogue cannot be beat. I know this for fact as I have viewed countless on line tackle stores and done comparisons. I have a one stop shopping site now. Please find attached a nice striped bass that my 13 year old son caught at Plum Island, MA with the 975LD on a live lined mackerel. Thanks.
Thank you for your interest. The two Shimano Torium 20s arrived in pristine condition just as stated on the 19th. I am just loading them with line now and they look great. I will definitely look to SRMO in the future for my upcoming fishing needs. Thank you again. I really appreciate the follow up. This is how we like to treat our clients as well; with a little respect. It's a shame that so many business have forgotten what good customer service actually is these days. Have A Great Day!

Dear Sharky,
My order arrived in perfect condition and much faster than expected. I took my nephew and son fishing on the Hudson and my nephew landed his first striper, 32 inches and 13 lbs. We used herring chunks injected with mennhadden oil along with the circle hooks we bought from you. We live in Pa. With the excellent service and quality of your products you can be sure I will order products from you again.
Best regards,
Joe Hizny
Just took a trip to the ledge off Charleston, SC this past weekend with three 12-13 year olds. They caught five dolphin and a cooler full of bottom fish. Had a great day using tackle from Shark River. The new Penn 30TW and Tuns Stick worked great. I need a 50TW for the way back line - I'll be ordering one soon. I attached some photos. The last photo was taken half way back home after a 4:00 am start.

I ordered two reels by mistake and your sales rep took care of the problem. My Torium reel arrived in good condition and ready to go fishing. I attached picture of California halibut I caught on 12lb test off Ventura, Ca coastline

Thank you to all,

Rich Campos

Thanks Sharky,
I ordered sinker molds, and they arrived within a couple of days...THANKS...I'll be ordering more"stuff" as the season gets going. I fish New England, Connecticut,for Stripers,Blues,Winter
Flounder,Fluke,Blackfisn,Porgies,Whatevers out there. Great Prices by the way....thats what will keep me coming back for more. Thanks...Skipper of the "Reel-Nauti"....Paul
All of the fish in the attached pics were caught using the Reels I bought from Okuma EB 30's. Great reels. The rods I used were a lightning rod by Berkley and a Quatum blue runner inshore(The tip broke on the quantum). I was using 6lb green triplefish line with Gamagatsu #2 red circle hooks. This Guided trip was at Disney World. There were 4 of us fishing on the boat. We caught a at least 40 fish in 3 hrs. I'm the fat old guy in the white tee shirt and my son Brian Has the Curly red hair. The oldest man wearing the blue shirt is my dad he paid for the trip. My Oldest son Tony went as well.
I received my Shimano reel. It was fast shipping, packaged great and wonderfully priced. This was an excellent transaction and you have earned a new customer.

Great service! My order arrived in a couple of day's, nothing backordered, exactly what I ordered. Can't beat that. I'm sure I'll use you guys again... good selection, pricing, and service.
Thanks, Ken
The torium I ordered is great. Plus great price. The shipping box and the torium box took a severe beating in shipment. Both boxes were crushed, but the reel was perfectly ok. So I am happy. Will order from your company again without hesitation.

I have placed 3 orders since December. Price, service and speed of delivery were flawless on each order. I've been recommending you to all my friends.
My first order was 6 spooled Internationals. I was a little nervous due to the size of the order, but having purchased through Mac's in the past, I knew I would be OK. The reels were delivered so fast I couldn't believe it. Keep up the good work (and low prices!)
Here's a shot of a 39 lb bass caught on a live bunker last spring off Spring Lake

Here is a typical day on the MEGABYTE showing 3 of the over 90 stripers we took that fine afternoon.
Thanks again Sharky.

Skipper John
(by the way, I have links to your fine site on my site & most of my crew have ordered from you as well! Another order coming soon, just before the next Hudson Anglers tournament. Look for the MEGABYTE to win this year!!!)


As usual, as with the many other orders I have placed with Shark River, everything arrived quickly and in good order. Thank you for your service & your follow-up. Attached is a 200 pound Mako that my crew & I took on a pen 50SW during the Hudson Anglers tournament last year (June 2003). The reel came from your fine shop. The Mako would have placed, however, due to some incredible complications and a truly wild fish, she took over 2 hours to land and we ended up 8 minutes late fighting 8 to 10 foot seas for the 80 mile trip back!!!

Skipper John

Hi Sharky,
Excellent service!!! I will certainly buy from you guys again. Now I have to see if I can catch anything with these new reels. Thanks again for a job well done.
Rob White
I even sent a separate email as I am so impressed with your service. This was my 2nd order from you and the service and prices are super. Keep up the good work and look for more business from me in the future.
Joe Shabbott Gloucester, Virginia
Just wanted to let you know everything on my last order arrived in perfect condition, they only thing is that it took a little longer to get here, 4-days, it's usual here in Ct. the next day, Only kidding. Your service is just fine and you can expect additional orders in the future.
I have mentioned your site to other members of a fishing web site I visit frequently and hopefully you might of picked up a few new customers, I know in fact that some of the members already ordered from you in the past.
Keep up the good work & good prices.....
Dennis Yonan Newington, Ct.
My reel came in and I was very impressed with the speed and quality of your service. Thanks for the fast return, you will see more of my money in the future---I belong to the Senior Anglers of Escondido and Oceanside. I will be passing you e-mail address around to all 400 plus.....Thanks again for the fast service....
Got it today, thanks! Here's a photo of my boat at the canyon for your board. It's a 2001 28 Henriques, name is "Bachelor", that's my buddy Chris holding one of the 8 longfin we landed that day.
Received reel approx 1 week ago. Was in fine shape. Thank you for your prompt delivery and fantastic prices. How do you post such low Shimano prices????
Thanks again. Rick Lagomarsino
Everything arrived in excellent condition, thank you for following up. I have several friends who fish and one charter boat captain friend and I tell them to check out your website. You can be sure I'll be ordering again in the near future. Thanks, Joe
Received my order yesterday in great condition. Your service is excellent.Keep up the good work.
Sincerely Jim Schoonover
Reels arrived today(Monday). Was not home last Friday or I would have received them! Great service and prices for Shimano reels. Have left Positive feedback on Ebay.........hope you will do the same.

Hey Sharky everything in the order was great,was delivered fast.and at a very affordable price..i am working on another order now..thank you for the .great service and products you provide...Paul
More Uses Than You Think
Thanks for your follow up on my order, unfortunately Iam not using these 500# swivels for fishing. Theswivels are being used for Falconry. So now when you advertise, you have another way to sell your swivels.Please feel free to use the attached picture. The swivel attaches the leash to the Jesses that are attached to bracelets on "Bandit"'s feet.
Thanks Again
The guy on the right (John from Newport News, Va), in the attached picture, is holding the first striped bass (rockfish here in Virginia) that he ever caught. It was 36-1/2 pounds. I'm on the left (Gary from York County, Va) with a 42 pounder caught in the Chesapeake last year. One (John's) was caught on a large spoon (Pet #21) and the other was caught on a large saltwater spinner bait (just like largemouth fishing but the hook is a 10/0) running about 20 feet back on 80 pound test from a three way swivel. The weight for the swivel was a 32 ounce MoJo with a 9" sassy shad on it. Great fishing for stripers here in the winter months.
Tight Lines, Gary, Va
Hi Sharkey,
Yes, everything arrived quickly and in good shape. I love the Penn reels. Your service and prices are great. I will be ordering from you again.
Brian Copley
Dear Sharky,
Everything arrived quickly and in good order ... I'll put the new reel to the test on rockfish & lingcod in a couple of weeks! I appreciate the good service and gave the catalog you included to a friend.
Sincerely, Richard
Service was excellant as ordered and everything arrivede in good condition.
The folowing picture was taken of a Fluke I caught on the Prowler V out of the Atlantic Highlands using the Spro Bucktail and a strip of squid fished on supercast line and flouro carbon leader.
Thanks for another successful order. My one B.O. item arrived this week. I have been using your company for many years and have always had great service and low prices. My order is usually at my door within 48 hours. This is the first time using your Internet web page and it worked perfectly with my order 100% complete and accurate. It's refreshing to see companies like yours that pay attention to detail. I run a charter boat out of Pt. Judith RI fishing the beautiful RI waters around Block Island. Attached is a tuna photo caught on my boat using Shark River tackle. Have a great season. See you on the water,
Capt. Steve Palmer
HI! The chartruse bodys and jigs i bought really did the trick, caught a nice one! Thanks for the quick shipping too!


Yes, I bought 4 Penn 50VSW's and 4 tuna sticks. Everything was received in good condition. Great service. Will gladly recommend you to others. Attached is a picture of a White Marlin my son Greg caught August 2002, 60 mi. off Oregon Inlet, NC, fishing from our 24' Albemarle. It was caught (and released) on a Penn 114HLW w/60# Ande. Also, a wahoo and a false albacore. As soon as I catch something on the new ones I'll send you some pictures.
Thanks. Tom Whitley
Thanks you very much for the followup, this is very professional.
The equipment is working fine and I am very pleased with both theproduct and the service. I would also like to compliment you on your web site. It is very easy to navigate.
Thanks and I will be ordering again.
Everything arrived in great shape. This is the third 30W international Ihave ordered. Your service is great.
Pat Bunn
The service for both of the orders that I have now placed through srmo has been excellent. On top of great prices and selection, the prompt delivery and the obvious care with which my orders were prepared are very much appreciated. Well done!
Received the order today. You are consistently the quickest shipping outfitI have ever purchased from online.
Thanks Chuck
Recieved the reels yesterday and they look fine. don't worry, we'll put them to the test this season. hopefully, we'll be sending you lots of pics this season. here's one from last year (notice the shirt):
I received everything in perfect condition, and was exactly what I 'd been looking for. My husband loves to sport fish, but had developed back problems. The supported harness I ordered allows him to fish on any charter boat, and not worry about what type of harness they might provide. I also wanted to let you know that your price was $30.00 less than any competitor prices, for the same item. Thanks for making this a great holiday for us!
Cathy Preston, Md.
Everything I got was fine. I have turned on quite a few people to your store and they tell me also that they like your products and your prices. Have a good holiday.

Check out the attached 11lb Black caught on the Garden State North reef saturday by Gary Maimone.


Service was great. I enclosed a couple of picks of me and me girlfriend
Jenn Lowell. One blackfish caught last week and two bass caught in August
this summer. I use a Pro Gear PG 251 w/ a Nickelite Starr rod. She has
same reel with St. Croix rod.

This was my second order with and I am extremely pleased with the pricing, products, and rapid shipping. When I placed the order I was wondering if it would arrrive in time for my tuna trip, but I had it all at my house three days prior to the trip. Please keep up the good work and I'm sure I will place orders in the future.
Thanks again, Mike
Sharkey,All items on both orders were received in good condition and were exactly as expected.You now have a happy new customer.Thanks,Paul Daversa
Yeah, everything with the order went great. got the creek chubs in time for my trip to cape cod, caught a ton of big (10-15lb) bluefish from the beach, they were blitzing and was the best surf fishing i've ever experienced!pictures arent developed yet, i'll send you one when they are.
Here's a pic of a nice white marlin i caught on my buddies boat out at the "canyon", off of Virginia Beach last summer. Tackle was a Penn 50T with 50lb test, trolling a purple and black skirt on ballyhoo. took about 20 minutes to get it in the boat...GREAT FUN!!
Hi Sharky
All is good here. I got introduced to fluke bullets a couple of year ago, but I can't find them in Tidewater Virginia. At any rate, the new batch you sent me produced a 4# and 6# flounder (fluke) the first time I used them here on the Chesapeake Bay. I'm going to try jigging them in them rips of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel later in October for trophy flounder and maybe a striper.
Sharky,all equip. arrived in good order. however the first order I got I apparently clicked on the wrong size jig hooks I recieved mustad size 8/0 jig hooks . I ment to order smaller size which I have since ordered and recieved .I'd like to return them for credit but I cant locate the reciept. perhaps you have it on file.please let me know if I can return them for credit against a future order. I'll be ordering other I'm starting to manufactuer jigs. Here's a photo of a snook caught in Charlotte Harbor in southwest Florida last weekend.28 inch fish was caught with a Johnson silver minnow spoon, with a live shrimp on the hook Thank you for the fine service Frank Meulenberg. Port Charlotte Fl.
Got the sinker molds I had ordered very quickly. I had looked everywhere for them and was happy to find that you carried them. I am very pleased with your service and the product and appreciate your checking on the delivery. I have added your web site to my favorites list and fully expect to do business with you again soon.

Thanks again,
Earl McCleskey

Hi Sharkey, just to let you know everything I ordered came as described, and just in time for our annual Cabo trip. I am chartermaster for 8 of us guys retired from Lockheed Martin. The pic of me, and the 320 lb. marlin was my first time marlin catch. He died on the way in. I was using my Penn Int. 50TW with a Seeker rod, and 100 lb. Hi-Seas Quatro line (which I ordered from you), and a purple and black SH_Bite lure. The pic of my 76 lb. yellowfin, with Wayne, and Fred with their dorados, was caught on my Penn Int. 30TW 2 speeded by Cal Sheets, and Seeker rod, with 50 lb. Black Widow (which I ordered from you also), trolling a large green and yellow cedar plug. I really love the Black Widow line. This was my 4th trip to Baja, and now that I am retired, I will be going many more times. We were on the East Cape at Hotel Punt Colorada, the trip was set up by the fantastic people at Baja Resorts. Thanks for the fast, and professional help, and delivery. You will have my business for a long time. Tight Lines Forever, Bob Sladek
Just to let your know that your service was great. I needed to get a reel in time to take over to Ireland and you promised it at a certain time -- and delivered!! Thank you so much. I will definitely use you again.
Bill Hoffmann
Service was great and prices too! Looking seriously at the 975LD.
Attached is a pic of some Flounder that were taken by a couple of buddies and me near the Cell in the Chesapeake Bay (Va.) on a recent trip. Five of the 15 flounder were between 5 and 5 1/2 pounds.

Fishing friends told us about your company. We received our order in excellent condition and in record time.
Thanks for your prompt service, Captain Cheryl.
Dear Sharkey
I received everything and it was just as I expected, the knives are working out great. Enclosed are several pictures from a couple of my many fishing adventures here at Diego Garcia BIOT. The first picture is a 94 pound Yellow Fin Tuna that we caught trolling with a black/orange 8 3/8" Yo-Zuri Bonita. The other photo is 7 Yellow Fin Tunas including a 77 pounder, 10 Wahoos, two Skip Jacks (Travali's), and a small Mahi Mahi. We caught these trolling with the Bonita mentioned above and a variety of CD-22 Rapalas.
Hi Sharkey, yes everything arrived in great condition, and I am completely satisfied with your service. I will be leaving the day after tomorrow for a 7 day trip to Cabo San Lucas. The fish counts have been awesome the last week, and the yellowfin are really coming on strong up to 160 pounds. I am really anxious to try the Black Widow line I ordered from you. I spooled all my Penn Internationals with the different sizes. I am chartermaster for about 12 of us who go every year. We've been going there for the last 10 years, but this year will be especially sweet for me, as I just retired in May. Again, thanks for the great service, and I have passed your website address to all my angling buddies. I'll definitely be bringing back some good pics for your fishing board.
Regards, Robert
Everything came pretty quickly, and it was in great condition...not a small feat when shipping via UPS! I ordered a heavy Ugly Stik, and it was packed very well, perfect condition! Also had some smaller stuff that was included and also as ordered.
I've ordered from you guys a few times in the past, and have had nothing but good experiences with your catalog. I plan to continue shopping with you regularly!
Thanks very much, Jason
Delivery of my recent purchase was prompt. All items were in excellent shape. Thank you for the good service and the follow up. The attached photo is a 37 pound grouper I caught recently in the Gulf of Mexico fishing off of Dauphin Island, AL. He was caught on a Penn 6/0 with 80 pound line. In 165' of water.
Sharkey, as always, your service is A-1 in my opion. Thats the main reason I shop with you. Have ordered from you several times and the items I receive are in excellent shape along with the best prices on the internet.
I recieved your thank you note. we will be ordering soon. here are some pictures caught in montauk. 9.65lb-9.32lb fluke. caught with fish finder set up. plastic squid, bucktail teasers,gamakatasu-5, 6, floro carben. nasty weather and budwieser. me and my fiance. had a great time. striper was caught while fluken great shot-26lbs.
thank you again gavin loyer and jennifer pfeiffer. mere bag of shells charters.east rockaway,new york
We have place numerous orders through your mail order catalog and can't say enough good things about the courtesy of your people, the prices of your supplies, and the quickness of your shipping. Because of all the excellent service we have received, we have mentioned your mail order to allot of our fishing friends at the marina. We did have a few catalogs and have passed them on to different people. We still have people asking us for catalogs and we have run out except for one that we will not give up. Would it be possible for you to send about 5 catalogs so I can pass them on to people at the marina who want them?

Thank you,
Betty & Jim

Sharky -
My order (#####) for a Shimano STR2000LD and SBTR3500 was received on time and in good condition. I have been buying fishing gear from you for over 15 years and think you are the best. I even bought a Shimano TIAGRA 50WLRS from Shark River when you carried them and have caught a lot of big fish in Mexican waters. Every time you send me an order you enclose a catalog and I have been giving them to my fishing friends.
Glenn Van Hest
HI Sharkey, Thank you for the quick resolution to my last order discrepency. I received the sleeves yesterday. It is refreshing to deal with a company who actually cares about there customers .Your shop will be number one on my list when it is time to purchase more stuff.
Thank you Rich Melton
Everything I order from you is great. Prompt service! Here's a few pics from Florida. The bass was caught on a terminator spinnerbait. The trout were caught on jigs and rattle bobber in the gulf (cedar key). The jigs were were tipped with tube baits. The flounder was caught on a yozuri silver minnow at cedar key.
Thanks, Gary Pica
Hi Sharkey,
Thanks for a speedy order. My husband loved his birthday gift and can't wait to give it a try. Hopefully he can catch a few big one's for the dinner table. Once again, THANK YOU.
Cordially, Virginia Reichert
Caught on Tuf Line from SRMO this past weekend (3/24/02). A trophy 30 pound American Red Snapper, approximately 20 miles south of the Alabama Coast. This is Ben Lauboski, a HS senior in Mobile Alabama, fishing with my son & me. Snapper season is closed in the Gulf. This was catch & release (sniff).

As usual, everything was great. The deal on the Penn 30SW was a steal and I can't wait to use it. I bought a 30TW from you last spring and will run it and the 30SW on the outriggers this spring. Your service is great and I will buy again from you for sure. Thanks again.

Hi Sharkey,

The video I ordered (The Art of Cast Net Throwing) was shipped immediately and received by me in good working condition. I viewed it for the first time yesterday and it is loaded with good information and I'm anxious to start trying the techiques demonstrated on the tape.

I haven't received my catalog yet and was wondering if Shark River carries a Betts 8 ft. shrimp net with 3/8 in. mesh size and if so, what is the cost?

Thans for the great service.

Hey Sharkey,

Very satisfied first time customer here. Everything I ordered and very prompt service, good prices too.Thank You.

My largest fluke in over 30 years of fishing NJ waters. Caught on 7-7-01 Reach Channel, Raritan Bay (9 lb 11 oz) 29" using squid and killie combo with chartreuse tail.

Everything Was fine with my order here are some pictures of rockfish caught at Cape Charles VA. on 12/07/01 trolling with large parachute rigs. I am from Baltimore MD.

Mike Bream

Service was great. Everything got to me in perfect shape and very quickly. I have just started doing a little saltwater fishing so I have a lot to learn. I have always done my own tackle rigging so your catalog is perfect. I live (western part of VA) 7 hours from the ocean so I don't get there as often as I would like. Thanks for being a good supplier.
Here is a pic of the first fish caught with my new Penn 750. We fished the rips at DE bay drifting live eels on 11/16/01. Capt. Mike Cathell put us on the fish and we caught our limit. Regards,
Frank DiGregorio
As always, great service and great prices. Never backordered, good ecommerce website too. No complaints. Thanks,

Everything arived in great condition. I was amazed at how fast the order was filled. Unlike when I ordered straight from Yo-zuri (which took them three weeks to send out two swimmers) My order from you guys was waiting for me two days later. I am planning to put in another order shortly.
I am enjoying the Penn 9500 that I recently ordered. I just returned today from the Outer Banks where it was used to land a four foot shark and many bluefish and flounder. It arrived as expected and in good condition, a brother for the one I ordered from SRMO last year. In fact the good service and low price was the reason I chose to order from SRMO again. The price was $20.00 cheaper than anywhere else I checked and the delivery was within 3 days of my order.
Last year I ordered a rod that was shipped on back order but at no extra charge and arrived in a tube that could have withstood even the worst UPS had to throw it. I have been pleased with both orders and your pricing and plan to do more business with you in the future. Thanks for the follow-up email, it means a lot to see some companies still care.
Jon Thibodeau
All arrived great, thanks

here is a fishing picture from OC, MD - chunking

Am I surprised! No one has ever checked with me to see if my order came and if I was happy with or not. I got my order just as I wanted, and am very happy with your operation.
My only request would be for you to carry Jinkai leader in 250 or 300 lb test and Mustad 7691's in size 10/0. I prefer the 7691 to the kirbyed 7699 (?) style that you carry in size 10/0.
Thanks for asking, you provide great service.
My first kingfish. She was 42lb and was caught off St Augustine, FL, Aug 8,2000. She hit a trolled Spanish sardine in 18 ft of water. The line was 20lb stren.
Norm Schubert
Yes, all items arrived on time and in excellent condition! As a matter of fact, have caught a few dozen fluke with your silver bullets already!
No fluff. You have what I need. Your prices are very competitive. Nice job!!!
Everything's great. Thanks for asking. I received everything in good condition. Haven't had a chance to use the 114h senator yet. Waiting for my friends to book that canyon trip. The swivels and sliding sinkers snaps I'll be using soon to go stripe bass and sea bass fishing. As far as the beads i'm experimenting with a 3 hook fluke rig with one hook having red beads, one with green and one with yellow or white. I want to see which beads attracts the biggest fish. I catch a lot of fluke with my bouncing technique but I manage to get mostly shorts. I'll catch 10-15 fish and have only 3 keepers with red beads and the persons next to me catches an average of 2-4 but they catch the 3-4 punders and they had green, yellow or white beads on their rigs. We're all using the same bait so the only thing different are the beads we're using. I want to see if the beads make a difference or is it just luck. lets see what happens this weekend.
I am completely satisfied with my order. Prompt shipping and great
packaging. I can't wait to use these Silver Bullets in October on Ocrakoke
Thanks. Jeff

My rod and reel arrived just in time for my birthday. Thanks!



Inexpensive, easy ordering, super-fast delivery. I don't think you have any room for improvement. Thank you very much for your services,

Patrick McMahon


Got the stuff, everything was great.

I must say your service was exactly as described on the page. Shipping was correct, price was correct, arrived at correct time as you said, and really, the most important thing to me, there was NO backordered item. I ordered an egg mold and production pot. I am going fishing here in a couple weeks, (taking 5 other "fishermen"...).... and without both the mold and the pot, I would have been out of luck. It just drives me nuts when I order something and ONE or both of the items are backordered. I would drive 50 miles to go get them if I knew they would be back ordered from a catalogue company. Fortunately, you had them both, and I do realize that it is not a perfect world and things sometimes are out of stock. I am just glad my first experience with your company was a delightful and gratifying one, and I will definitely be back for more. As long as the service and "in stock" is available, you will have my business.

I do have a suggestion for possibly those who buy molds that have the pull out rod... I took the rod and polished it up with some crocus cloth in the same direction as you would pull the rod out to leave a hole for the egg sinkers. It took all of 5 minutes to get a very nice shine to it. Then I used some oil with the corcus cloth and polished again in the same direction... another 5 mintues maximum. When I was done and began to cast the egg sinkers, the rod pulled out much MUCH smoother and easier than when I originally began. It just seemed to work much better with the little extra polish job and I only had to oil it about every 3rd time. I guess maybe polishing the same direction as what you pull and the crocus cloth and then oil and the crocus cloth made it a little smoother and got off any tiny burs that may have been left. Just wanted to share that in case anyone every complains. It is difficult to pull out in the beginning but the polishing and then getting it to the right temperature make it a real piece of cake.

Best regards to you and your staff and the people who do the ordering!!!!! Brad

Everything arrived in fine shape. I'm river fishin' for the next 3 weekends and then it's back to saltwater. Will report on the halibut catch. I can tell you right now that my close circle of fishin' buddies all use Shark River products and we consistently catch fish when no one else is catching a thing. Gil
Everything arrived in fine shape. It is a pleasure doing business with someone that doesn't screw up an order. You have made a new customer and you will be recommended to a lot of my beach bum cronies. Thank you, Ernie Pruessen


The reel was just what my husband wanted. It was a gift for our 20th Anniversary. He is very happy with the Penn International II 30S. I couldn't have chosen a better gift. Thank you for the prompt service and the reasonable prices. Kay Long


Dear Sharkey,

Thank you for the great service, I would & will highly recommend you to all that need fishing tackle. The price I paid for my Penn Reel was $35 dollars less than the Mall giant sporting goods store and $49 dollars less than the local shop and shipping was less than two days !!!

Thank you & I will be visiting often !! JT

Hello. I have ordered many times from SRMO and have never had a problem. You have great prices and good service. This time the order was goofed. No problem though. I ordered a Braid Brute buster harness and was sent the brute buster belt. I hope I get the belt in time for my trip to Baja at the end of the month. Anyway, I will continue to order from your company as this sort of mistake can happen to anybody. Thanks, Matt
Everything arrived perfect. I told two other fisherman about your site, should be doing more business soon, thanks again, Tom

Hi Sharkey,

You have a happy camper here. Everything arrived in good condition and in good time. You can look forward to more bus from me. Ed

You guys are the BEST!! My sister gave that reel to my son for a graduation present - and it got here in plenty of time thanks to your great service!! Thanks again Bob
My co-workers and myself was impressed with the fast delivery. I was expecting maybe a week or two not in two days. I did get to try the grunt jig. It's takes some getting use to from the diamond jigs - slower jigging or the hook gets fouled with the line. I've already placed another order and expecting it this week. Jeff
Just wanted to add my note to all the others - I searched the internet for over an hour and selected your site to order a Penn Reel for my husband. You had the best prices and your service was great. Order received quickly and in great condition. My husband has passed this website onto his fishing pals. I know we will be ordering again soon. Thanks again for a website that is great to visit!
Here are a couple of pictures, both in boats. 17.8 # Bass beneath the Jamestown Bridge in the Narragansett Bay. and the Doormat fluke is 4.5lbs hooked off Narragansett Beach. Both caught in R.I.Waters. From: Reed
Sharky, What's wrong with you guys? I got my order promptly, in full, shipped at reasonable cost and the stuff looks good. How can you expect to compete with the other guys if don't screw everything up on every order, or at least mine? Seriously, this is the first order, of anything, I have been totaly happy with in a long time. As to the photo request, I write for a number of magazines and take lots of fishing and particularly hunting photos. I also own and operate a chater boat on Kodiak Island, Alaska, and we catch lots of big fish. To be honest, I usually sell photos, but if you have a specific need for some, high quality Alaska photos, let me know what you would like and I'll send you some. I shoot slides exclusively, and you would need to deal with getting them to your format. Thanks again. best to you Art
I bought a spool of clear 80# ande line from you 3 years ago and had left it on the boat. We went to the fish tails and the fish were leader shy so we took some of the 80#ande and made a leader, that held up on a yellow fin that dressed out at 165#. that's pretty good stuff to still be that strong after 3 years. The people we brought it into guessed it was probably a 200+ lb. fish one of the bigger yellows they ever seen. Thanks, Rich
Heyya Sharky: Here's a couple pics for your board if you want them. The new Braid Brutebuster belt and harness I got from you preformed flawlessly on my 425# Salmon Shark caught on the NE side of Mantague Island, Alaska. Thanks for the speedy service and personal interest you take in your customers. I'm gonna fish the Seward Silver Salmon derby in August so hope to have some more pics for you. Thanks . . . Butch
I would like to thank you for the prompt delivery of the Quantum Reel I recently ordered. The reel has performed up to and beyond my expectations. I am also pleased with the supplies I ordered prior to the reel. I have given the catalog to my friends, and several have already ordered items from it. Keep up the quality work. Steve
I am very happy with your products and your service. I have told my friends about your business, I know some of them buy from you. Here is a picture of my 160lb. yellowfin tuna I caught while fishing onthe "Qualifier 105". We were fishing at Clarion Island. Ken
The tackle that I ordered arrived in fine condition and I made some jigs and tried them this past week in Deleware. Though the fishing conditions were terrible, I still mananged to catch a few fish. Thanks for the tackle, and let me know of any upcoming sales. John.
Sharky, have your link on my SC Fishing club and everyone that I have directed to you has had praise for your prices. My order arrived in good time and in good shape. Plan to order in the near future. Parks
Yes everything I ordered has arrived. Since than I ordered two more rods from you because your service is GREAT! Keep up the good work Sharky. Included picture of boat you helping me outfit. Sincerely, Bill
Everything came as expected and expeditiously. I gave away your catalog to a buddy visiting us from Florida. By the way, do you carry the Shimano Calcutta series of reels? Completely satisfied customer, Mark
I am very pleased with the sinker mold that I recently purchased. It was a pleasant surprise to see it arrive in just a couple of days. I plan on ordering additional items in the future. Steve
Everything OK. I got the extra bolt for the Okuma on Wed or Thurs. Thanks Joe

Hi: Everything I ordered came through just fine. I appreciate your concern and you folks will be getting more orders from me soon. Fishing season is just getting geared up here in Alaska. Still some snow but it's going fast. In about 2 weeks, I will be fishing at least a couple days every week. Thanks again for your prompt and courteous service!

R. Butch

Everthing ordered arrived on time and in fine condition. Thanks for the catalog. Tim guys are great......Kasper
yes, we got the rods just fine. everything was in good order. thank you very much. Burrell
I have bought 8 reels in the last couple of weeks. The last four were Penn 975's and two speed 16s's. The first four are two heavy of an outfit for the application I was looking for. As a result I will return 4 reels this week per the instructions of your customer service team. Having said all of that, I just want to complement you on the quality of your service. I have spent several thousand dollars with you in the last month and could not be happier. Your prices are also world class. Thanks for a great product. Jeff
