In the unlikely event that you find a lower price than what we offer, every day...,
by
an authorized dealer, upon confirmation we'll beat that offer - guaranteed!


DEPARTMENTS

What makes us so darn special? Well, besides great prices, a knowledgeable staff and an extensive selection, we stock what we sell. We believe in the gear we offer, enough that we invest in the inventory. This is one thing that makes us unique in the world of internet commerce apparently. Many of our competitors do not actually maintain an inventory, we do! Because we stock what we sell we can ship in a more timely fashion, and buffer periodic shortages from suppliers. The items listed on CharkBait are things we stock, in our warehouse and stores. We are headquartered in Huntington Beach, have a shop there as well as in San Diego, California. We maintain over a million dollar inventory of fishing equipment so that we can supply our clients in a timely fashion. We are not some phantom on the 'net, unlike many operations you'll come across on-line. Unfortunately, we hear of these operations almost daily from clients who simply trusted a website being legit. I encourage you to do your homework on any internet purchase. Do a search on CharkBait, note we do have stores and a history of working with folks, we're listed with the Better Business Bureau and are members of the American Sportfishing Association... Before you trust another E'tailer with your order and credit card details ask a few questions. Does the retailer actually have a physical location, a store or are you dealing with some kid posting a website from their mom's garage? Sorry, there are such operations out there and we hear the tales, almost daily. It's easy to post stuff on-line, but if the "dealer" does not have a store they won't also have inventory, and if they do have a store chances are they won't have much inventory beyond what's needed for the shop. We are different, we have fully stocked stores as well as warehousing holding the gear we sell. We don't depend upon other folks to fulfill our orders, we stock what we sell. You can feel secure working with us, knowing that should there be any problem with an item or order we'll work to resolve it properly. We've been serving clients on-line and at our shop for 15 years time.

We are large enough to purchase directly from our suppliers rather than solely through a distributor or other third party. This cuts our operating cost, which results in better values for our clients. It also ensures warranty coverage should that be necessary down the road.  CharkBait's been around for over 15 years now. We employ 15 people, each committed to doing their best to serve our clients. We were the first on-line tackle shop, it's our goal to be your favorite option for purchasing quality fishing gear. If ever there is a time when you are dissatisfied with the service you receive from us, please contact me directly. All of us working here recognize our responsibility to serve our clients respectfully, and  appreciate your patronage and support.

We offer a low price guarantee on the gear we supply. If any other authorized dealer beats our price for current in stock shipable* products whether online or in print ads (doubtful prospect) upon confirmation we'll gladly beat their price, and we hold to this for 30 days after sale, too. We offer great gear, peace of mind, and recognize the trust you place in us when you make an order.
(*it's easy to post stuff on the 'net, and have no intention of fulfilling the obligation - that's why we qualify this guarantee by saying "shipable")

Sincerely,
Mark Smith,
Owner/Operator

Orders over $150 are shipped FREE!* Orders less than $150 are billed for shipping. Upon placing your order you'll receive an immediate confirmation via email. You are not billed at that time, the confirming email may not reflect oversize or overweight charges or other issues requiring direct contact. We process orders manually, preferring to have a human actually check things over and contact you should there be questions. Within 24 hours of placing your order you will receive a follow-up email confirmation and final  invoice (pdf doc) reflecting your total charges (Monday-Friday). You are not billed until we actually send you your final invoice.  Orders shipped to CA addresses will have California Sales Taxes applied, out of state orders are tax free. During the ordering process you can select expedited shipping if required. (Within the USA we usually ship via Federal Express ground. International, and oversize/weight items will be billed for shipping and you will be sent an emailed invoice reflecting total charges prior to actual billing. We will not ship without you having had a chance to review the invoice). Hawaii and Alaska shipping will be accomplished using USPS Priority service, and our standard shipping cost policy will apply unless the item ordered does not fit in their standard size boxes. If additional shipping fees are required we will contact you.)

Warning - the products sold here may contain lead and other substances that are known to the great State of California to cause cancer and birth defects and other reproductive harm. Do not place your hands in your mouth after handling these products. Do not place the products in your mouth. Wash your hands after handling these products. Do not use torpedo sinkers to plug up any orifice. Never sprinkle split shot on your pizza instead of crushed peppers, and never include them in chocolate chip cookies in place of chocolate chips. It's also a really good idea to brush your teeth at least twice a day, eat an apple every day or so, and make sure everything is put away before zipping up your trousers... Sorry, California tries to accommodate a lot of really stupid people, the majority of whom apparently "work" in Sacramento and have law degrees...
