Why we did this
There’s a complex relationship between what tackle we need and the species, lake characteristics, season, style, and location of where we fish. We wanted to create a custom shopping experience online that you’d receive at the mom-and-pop bait shop. Omnia Fishing is the first e-commerce store that allows you to find, buy, and organize your fishing gear based on the specific bodies of water you fish. We make finding the right tackle easy by presenting a refined list of relevant tackle products based your specific needs starting with the lakes you fish, and we allow the community of anglers that fish that lake help each other discover what baits are working in real-time. Our vision for Omnia is a simple platform and better way to shop for fishing tackle that allows us to connect anglers with gear that is working on the lakes they fish or in another state with similar lake characteristics.
