Wacker Bait & Tackle is on a new path. After about 20 years of having a faint aroma of tutti-frutti/mulberry/pineapple/scopex surround me, I am stepping aside from the day-to-day operations of the company. Munenori "Mike" Kajiwara is taking over. He is an established presence in the fishing industry having brought the Marukyu line of baits to the USA and being a major supplier of Japanese bass lures. He is an exceptional angler and I know that he has plans to expand the reach of Wacker. I hope you will all support him. It has been an interesting time, one meets a lot cool people and a fair number of crazy ones in the carp business. I have a new house on a river and plan to continue fishing for carp (may even expand my repertoire and go for a few other species). The brick and mortar store is closing but the web site will remain and I hope it will be your source for all your carp gear. is owned and operated by ecommerce business unit of Kajiwara IT Consulting Inc.
