Anglers Marine in Santee a true one-stop-shop for San Diego bass anglers


Anglers Marine is arguably the County’s top bass fishing tackle store. All they sell is bass tackle, and their selection is second to none. Not only do they have a LOT of tackle, but the selection they have is tailored perfectly to West Coast bass fishing. If its hot on the local lakes, they’ll have it. Their inventory is also supplemented with their Anaheim location, so if its not in stock down in Santee, they can bring it down from Anaheim in just a couple days. But you’re not likely to find much, if anything thats not hanging right on the pegs in Santee.

If you’re in the market for a bass boat, now or in the future, your search should begin (and is likely to end) right here in this showroom. They’ve done a great job in bringing in boats that cater to a variety of budgets, all outfitted to efficiently handle the bass fishing scene in San Diego.

This month they’re offering a special on a non-current model year, brand new, 2009 Champion 183 powered by a 150 horsepower Mercury Optimax outboard for only $28,995. A boat like that is perfect for everything that San Diego has to offer, and the new technology Optimax outboard will get you on Diamond Valley. Its a new boat, with full factory warranties at a used boat price. Deals like that and more are available every day at Anglers Marine.

If you’re already a boat owner, Anglers has everything you’ll need to keep it on the water and stay ahead of the fish. They sell and install fish finders, GPS units, trolling motors, power-poles, and more. If it can be outfitted to a bass boat, they sell it and can install it for you.

Their service department has regularly won the Mercury Marine CSI Award, given to dealerships in North America who demonstrate the highest level of customer service. Usually there only about 100 dealerships in North America that receive the award, and at least once in the last few years (2008) Anglers Marine was the only dealership in California to win the award.

That level of customer service doesn’t stop in the service department, but is evident in every aspect of their business. In the tackle store, their level of knowledge and commitment to customers is particularly noteworthy. General Manager Art Bailey is one of the top team tournament anglers in San Diego and Diamond Valley, and has been for many years. Greg Gardner, the tackle store manager is also a long-time local angler, and fishes at the club tournament level still with the San Diego Bassmasters. Adam East, another successful team tournament angler in San Diego works here in the sales department, but is frequently around to help answer any tackle questions you might have. All of these guys are on top of the bite in San Diego, so if you have any questions on tackle or fishing in general, these guys can help.

There is plenty of parking available, a small lot is available in the business park, but can get full when its busy on the weekdays when the other businesses in the park are open. But there is plenty of street parking if thats the case, both to the side and behind Anglers Marine. You also shouldn’t have a problem ever parking with a boat in tow either.

They’re conveniently located along the 67 in Santee, just miles from El Capitan and Jennings. Even if you’re in North County, the new 52 extension makes it even easier to come see them. If you live in the East County, you’re probably only 10 or 15 minutes from Anglers Marine, and if you haven’t seen their store before, its a must-see. Anglers Marine is the pro shop of all pro shops, outfitting the best sticks in the county, and they’re ready to serve YOU.
