Our History

Since 1987, Malibu Fish'n Tackle has been a fish and tackle leader of Ventura County. It was established in '87 by Mr. Wayne Caywood and has been dedicated to bringing quality fishing supplies to the community ever since. When Malibu Fish'n Tackle first began it was a part of Malibu Seafood until it broke off and became an independent business. In 2015 Tom Trainer took ownership, and strives to keep Wayne's foundation intact. We serve the fishing community of Southern California by equipping our customers with the gear necessary to have a successful time out on the water. We are here to meet your fishing needs!


Our Mission

"Fisherman Leading Fisherman"

Malibu Fish'n Tackle was founded and built upon the idea of not only offering top of the line fishing supplies, but providing the knowledge to its customers in order for them to land the fish of a lifetime. Our staff is comprised of fisherman who are passionate and knowledgeable about their craft, and can offer various perspectives into different fishing styles. We are here to meet your fishing needs in any way possible, and to ensure your fishing experience is a memorable one. 

Take a course in good water and air; and in the eternal youth of Nature you may renew your own. Go quietly, alone; no harm will befall you.
— John Muir
