Our Story

Mayhem Tackle Company

 Mayhem Tackle Company LLC is owned by Nick and James. Catfishing is who they are. There were a lot of factors that led them to create Mayhem Tackle Company, but the driving force was their passion for the catfishing industry. You can’t buy the smile and joy on a kid or even an adult’s face when they latch into a good fish. Nick and James want to help make that more and more possible for years to come by providing quality products and giving back as much as they can. Nick and James are here to supply you with the catfishing products you need to get that next trophy fish in the net. Customer service is their number 1 priority. While the company goal is to grow as much as possible one of the company’s biggest goals is to get as many youths into the sport as possible.

We do it for the love of fishing
