Fishing Theme Park [UPDATE]



If you aren’t aware, part of our mission for 2025 is to establish and open a Family-Focused Fishing Theme Park!

It’s something that we think about every day but not something we get to speak about very often.

We are still some ways out but have been slowly putting together the pieces to bring our dream to fruition.

Just don’t do like one of the Big Bass stores has done. They used to be great, had great selections and prices and all of a sudden the way charge too dollars for everything they sell.

Hi Guys!
Grand ideas and plans coming towards fruition – That’s Awesome!
Something that jumped out at me at the 2:00ish mark was the mention of airboats. That is such a big red flag for me! Here in Texas – middle coast, those airboats create SO much noise/So Loud as to be a nuisance to visitors/fisherfolk for miles. Just a consideration for y’all to weigh into the plans. (Add it to the thousands of other considerations! 😉 )
My second batch of thoughts are about (an elephant in the room, I know!) hurricane protection/plans/insurance for the Theme Park / Aquarium etc. The park is a BIG investment for sure! Not asking for or expecting a response. Just putting it out there.
Thank you for creating the SaltStrong Nation and providing an open forum for us all to be able to pitch in our thoughts & ideas!

Something important and devastating to saltwater sport fishing is going on the the VA waters of the Chesapeake. Please check out the saga on Facebook at Menhaden – Little Fish, Big Deal. I would appreciate your feedback and any thoughts on how you might be able to help.
All the best!

I would be interested in having/running a FishStrong tackle store in the Houston/Galveston area.

I’d be interested in the tackle store as well in the FL. Panhandle area.

Exciting ideas, Joe & Luke. One thought concerning tackle shops … integrating education (including resource conservation), technology, and entertainment with tackle gear. Not too different from what you’re doing online except it would be more hands on. Take a quick glance at BigShots Golf as it may trigger some concepts that might carryover to what you guys are thinking … Tracking casting ability on radar to compete in “tournaments”, and any winnings converted into personal training with SS coach or maybe to apply to trips with affiliated guides.

I also think about how NASCAR has developed simulators that now help better train drivers. Of course these are extremely expensive but maybe creating a “range” where anglers gain casting experience and other learning experiences. Having the SS team thinking about what has made the large big box outdoor stores successful is worth a discussion … consider a diverse revenue stream while keeping the stores relative small. No need to create head to head competition with the big boys.

I like your idea of starting with one, fine tuning through continuous improvement, and then replicating in other locations. A smart business strategy.

You’ve got a lot on your plate but so long as it stays fun for you and your staff. SS should continue to thrive. Just don’t get overextended with debt as it accentuates the upside but also the downside too. Stay Strong!!
