Fishing Tackle

The tackle shop has an extensive assortment of locally time tested and productive salmon and bottom fishing supplies. You’ll find everything from Sinkers to siwash hooks, hoochies to holographic Buzz Bombs and casting reels to crab rings! You will also find our prices to be much lower than you would expect from a dealer right on the water.

Food and Beverages

Whether you are an angler or just passing by you will find just the snack, sandwich, hot dog or beverage you need to keep your outdoor adventure going. Ice cream or fruity bars are a traditional favorite as well. We also sell bagged ice to keep your drinks or your catch cold and fresh.

Marina Supplies

You may be surprised to find out that we have the spark plug your outboard motor requires along with other required supplies such as horns, whistles, life jackets, rope, motor oil and more.

We offer only ethanol free unleaded gasoline.

Why do we sell ethanol free fuel? Ethanol contains water that distillation cannot remove and can cause damage to engines and engine components not specifically designed to burn ethanol, like most boat motors.


marina souvenirsYou will also find in our tackle shop souvenirs and gifts to let others get a sense of your experience at Point Defiance or to remind you for years to come about your unique adventure.

Hats, T-shirts, post cards and shot glasses top the list of favorites.
