Captain Hook’s purchased Taylor Fishing Tackle, a coCaptain Hook's Bait & Tackle and Lodging/Cabin in Genoa, WImpany with a 45 year history. The business passed into the Clements family’s hands in 1996. We moved the business into a new building several years later in Genoa, Wisconsin. Our new building contains a bait and tackle shop and our manufacturing business.

We combined the two companies but maintained the Taylor Fishing Tackle brand. Our most popular lure, the “Walleye Killer Jig,” has been used country wide for walleye and sauger. This lure has been much copied through the years but our original design continues on to this day. All of our manufactured products are made right here in the United States. Dealer pricing is available.

We are open year round seven days a week. We carry all Wisconsin hunting and fishing licenses. We sell snack foods, ice cream, beer, pop, coffee, ice and all accessories needed for a day of fishing. Besides live bait and tackle, we offer line spooling services, knife sharpening, rod and reel repair, Frogg Toggs, signature sweat shirts and t-shirts and 20 or 30 gallon LP exchange. Come check out our cabin!
