Welcome To Ted's Tackle Shop
Ted’s Tackle is located at 1189 Tamiami Trail, in front of the always popular Ingman Marine Port Charlotte location. ‘Ted’s’, as it is known to most of us, has that warm, welcoming feel; more than just a tackle shop, Ted’s is like a sanctuary. This place is a gathering spot, a classroom, a place to relax and just swap stories.

Ted's Has Everything You Need!
You can get just about anything you want at Ted’s, including the latest in high-end spinning reels, rods, excellent lures, cool shirts, hats, rod and reel repairs, advice on just about anything and of course, camaraderie. There are a few chairs at Ted’s where friends gather and talk just like in the good ole’ days. On almost any given day, you will find the locals in Ted’s talking about fishing, sports, boats or whatever else may be on their minds. The only thing missing at Ted’s Tackle is the cappuccino bar (it’s a bring-your-own kind of place). There are many places you can get tackle and most sell the same items at just about the same price, but most of those ‘well known’ places are lacking in ambiance and have the cold and sterile feel of corporate America and big business.
The Owner: Captain Jeff Kincaid.
Jeff Kincaid, the owner of Ted’s, has just about anything you desire in his store and if he doesn’t have it, then it is just not what you need. Jeff is so much more than just a store owner wearing a fishing shirt, he is a lifelong experienced angler with local knowledge and the pictures to prove his abilities (and trust us, he is more than willing to tell you about them)! He knows what works and what doesn’t, so if you want to catch fish and are not sure just how to do it, then Ted’s is a great place to start. It’s as easy as walking in, looking around and listening to the conversations. You might just learn a few things and make some great friends along the way.
