Sponsor Highlight of the Month

What do you get when you combine a passion for tournament angling, an in depth knowledge of trolling motors and electronics, and one of the best eyes for exclusive tackle in the game? Jacky Roberts, of course! As the owner of Fish Finders Marine, Jacky runs a little fishing oasis tucked away in an industrial segment in Round Rock.

Jacky is an avid tournament angler and knows our needs better than any. Offering authorized warranty and non-warranty repair and service for Minn Kota and MotorGuide trolling motors, complete electronics rigging and the latest and greatest in fishing tackle, Fish Finders Marine has you covered. We know there may be a couple of places to get your trolling motor serviced, but if you want it done right the first time you’d better take it to Jacky’s.

Although trolling motor repairs keep him busy throughout the year, Jacky also spends quite a bit of time rigging electronics like graphs and flashers. Additionally, he has a real passion for fish care and leads the charge in educating anglers in this critical piece of our sport. Anyone who has ever been in Jacky’s shop, or met him on the tournament trail, has heard what we endearingly call “the lecture”. Proper use of release products, attention to livewell temperature and use of a properly installed and maintained oxygen system are a must in Jacky’s book.

Jacky told us recently,

“As interest in the sport grew, so did the amount of space dedicated to tackle.”

As more and more local sticks began frequenting Fish Finders, Jacky quickly recognized the obsession for select tackle and really describes his shop better than we could.

“I saw an interest in enthusiast grade products and decided to focus on a combination of premium products and those specifically requested by tournament anglers. What I wanted to create with my tackle store is more of a boutique for the tournament angler, and not a superstore of bulk items carried in your large retail chains.”

Jacky knew anglers wanted a place they could go and buy proven fishing tackle from someone who knew what was working on a particular body of water at any given time, so he answered the call. With special run colors of Zoom plastics, up to 75 colors of Norman crank baits, several makes and models of both hard and soft swim baits and hard to find specialty items like the Aaron Martens Scrounger and Swarming Hornet Drop Shot Fish Heads, Jacky has what others don’t.

Fish Finders is also a favorite haunt of many local anglers and a place to hang out when you want to mingle with some of the best sticks in Central Texas. On our most recent visit we ran into Matt Hill and got the inside scoop from his trip down to Mexico. Matt and his partner Trey Webb finished second in overall AOY points in the 2009 Bass Champs Central Region and were invited to fish the International Challenge at Sugar Lake. They finished 5th out of 24 teams and helped to bring the cup back to the US with a two day total of 54.46 pounds!

So whether your trolling motor needs a tune up, you need a new graph installed, need to pick up some baits for your next tournament or just want to hang out and talk fishing, swing by Fish Finders Marine and talk to Jacky.
