Squidnation, Inc and Pakula Tackle Australia, have entered into an agreement to distribute their respective products together. Squidnation will be distributing Pakula products in North and Central America and Pakula will distribute Squidnation Products in Australia—The agreement was established in principal in early December and the distribution channel has been opened and operating since Dec 20th.
Squidnation owner Bill Pino said,” the idea of offering Pakula products along with our Squidnation products was brewing for a few years. We specialize in teasers, squids and dredges. We have long been Pakula users and have had great success with their Wombat and Sprockets behind our Squidnation Flippy Floppy Things and teaser chains. Peter is an innovator in the industry. He was the first to add UV to his skirts and now is perfecting 3D printing of lure heads. We welcome that type of innovation and will look forward to working with Peter Pakula on some collaborative efforts in the near future. We met on the Gold Coast of Australia earlier this year and decided that a co-distribution would be a good idea for both companies”. Squidnation will be offering wholesale distribution of the entire Pakula Tackle line to retail shops throughout North and Central America.
Pakula Owner Peter Pakula said.” Dredge fishing in Australia is in its infancy. We kept hearing the name Squidnation come up when discussing artificial dredges and that Squidnation is at the forefront of dredge innovations. They also really put their name on the worldwide fishing map with the incredible success of their Flippy Floppy product. We like the idea of having a distribution channel in the United States and Central America again and also like the fact that Squidnation is a family run operation much like Pakula Tackle Australia. We look forward to working with Squidnation and distributing their products throughout Australia.
Pakula Tackle Australia offers innovative big game fishing tackle, including big game lures, big game hooks, trolling lure skirts, rigs, tools and accessories. Pakula Tackle introduced Lumo and UV additives to world of game fishing. In fact Lumo is a Pakula registered trade mark! All our lures both heads and skirts have our new UV2 additives. It is quite likely that out of all the lure makers Pakula Tackle has offered anglers far more than any other.
Squidnation was built out of a passion for offshore fishing. Squidnation is a thriving family owned and operated business providing products for fisherman worldwide. We pride ourselves on testing every single product we come out with and sell on the market. When we say “we” we mean the owners of the company. Our promise to you is that we will test it ourselves and if the product doesn’t work we will not release it. It is still our passion to fish as much as we can and to make products that we will use ourselves. Reach us at Squidnation@gmail.com or give Bill a call at 410-726-3582. Leave a message if he doesn’t answer he’s probably out product testing somewhere!

The call came over the radio. Chelita hooked up Blue Marlin. Capt/Mate Luis Wicho Ramirez had told us earlier that morning that all the fish were coming to the flippy flippy things. This one did too and its a big one!
The marlin bite was hot for the lure pullers today. We kept hearing report after report of marlin hooked up. But it was the little red center console that stole the show with a consistent performance of a marlin each day.
In the sailfish division Tranqulio caught fire mid day and ran away with the first place for an unprecedented 3rd straight year.
Tranquilo also won the Presidential Challenge of El Salvador and the Presidential Challenge Series along with the perpetual trophy in the Central America Billfish Series. Today was the final day for the series. Congrats to all the winners!

Reel Fantasy mate Luis “Wicho” Ramirez said,” Hey Pino, I gonna show you somting, watch dis”. He grabbed a Killer Pink and White Squidnation Flippy Floppy and a pair of scissors and snip, he cut my rig up. Then he rigged a purple lure and clipped it 4 feet behind a single Flippy squid and said,” Dis gonna get bit, watch”. 10 minutes later I saw a tail swish behind the left short. The seas were calm so it was very easy to see that it was a nice blue marlin. The 2nd pass he was angry and just crushed the purple lure. The fish started screaming away. Tackle failure at the rod tip broke the line and we lost the blue. Imagine our amusement when we got a call on the radio a minute later when a fishing buddy said hey Capt. a blue is going crazy off your bow and he gettin his butt beat by a flippy floppy.Read More »
