CHARLOTTESVILLE, VIRGINIA – Today, Tycoon Tackle, Inc. announced the addition of The Tackle Box, Inc. as a new Certified Agent in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The Tackle Box is owned by Jose Pazos and is a one-stop shop for all inshore and offshore angling needs. The Tackle Box can fill the needs of the offshore angler, specializing gear to catch Blue Marlin, White Marlin, Sailfish, and other blue-water species. In addition to fishing tackle, Pazos and his bilingual staff can recommend the proper baits, strategy, and the information needed for angling success in the waters of Puerto Rico.
Jose Pazos, a native of Puerto Rico and an experienced angler, opened The Tackle Box, after buying a small inventory that from his very good friend Till Brauer, in December 2003. Pazos had been in the construction business and entered the fishing tackle business as a “dream hobby.” However, very soon after opening the store, sales began growing quickly and Pazos realized the store was not only going to a hobby, but a calling in life. Today, more than 10 years later, Pazos is no longer in the construction business and his “dream hobby” has become his vocation. Pazos said, “I am very happy and enjoy the work a lot, I’m also very grateful to all my customers who have supported me from that first year until now.”
The Tackle Box is located at the following address:
Calle Doncellas #105
Punta Las Marías
San Juan, Puerto Rico 00913
Jose Pazos, owner of The Tackle Box said, “We are very happy to associated with Tycoon Tackle, this great brand was in the market since before I started fishing, selling the best rods in the history of fishing. I still have customers who have had their Tycoon Rods for more than 40 years and never want to change them, they only bring them in to be refurbished.”
Tim O’Brien, President of Tycoon Tackle said, “We are excited to have Jose and The Tackle Box as one of our family of Certified Agents. Their knowledge of fishing tackle and of the sport will be a tremendous asset to our company. I am looking forward to working with them in the coming years.”

The company was on the scene in the formative years of big-game angling and at one time more than 95% of all world record fish were caught on the company’s fishing rods. Tim O’Brien, owner and President the company, said, “The company began with little money but ‘a fortune in ideas’ and in time grew to become a leader in the angling world, by not only making the best and most desirable fishing rods but by being a leader in promoting the catch and release of gamefish.” The company is still family owned and committed to manufacturing products in the United States of America.
