Dear Valued Customers,
It is with a heavy heart that we must announce that Hook, Line & Sinker LLC will be permanently closing in January 2024. Our decision to close has not been made lightly. Together, during the last 10 years, we have weathered some of the most difficult economic conditions our country has endured in quite some time. Skyrocketing operational costs as well as current and increasing state regulations have placed a stranglehold on small businesses like our own.
Our final day of operation will be on Monday, January 15th, 2024. Customers who still have a Gift Card can use the cards until January 15, 2024. Specific end dates for various store services will be announced in the coming days in-store and via social media.
We would like to thank all of our customers for their loyalty and support. Many of you have grown to become dear friends and family. We thank you for the opportunity to serve you these last 10 years. A tremendous thank you to our dedicated employees. You have helped to distinguish us from our competitors time and time again with your amazing service and compassion. Lastly, we would like to thank those in the community who have supported and encouraged our family in this business venture.
Located at 3100 Main Street #260 in Oakley, the store will announce several discounts in the coming weeks in an effort to move merchandise.

The store has been a fixture in East Contra Costa County for fishing and hunting needs for over 30-years—opening in 1993.
Back in 2016/17, the store nearly closed down before it was purchased by a local businessman who also worked to keep the local fishing tournaments going. However, the strict gun laws and regulations, increased taxes on merchandise and the recovery from COVID played an impact in the decision.
