About Us

Our two South Florida stores offer a complete line of fishing tackle and marine supplies. Our flagship store is located at 1590 NW 27TH Avenue in Miami, and our second store is located at 13112 South Dixie Highway in Miami. Our two convenient locations offer local service to the areas near Downtown Miami. The Port of Miami, Miami International Airport, and the South Miami Dade area as well as easy access from the rest of South Florida.

El Capitan also proudly operates a rapidly growing wholesale export division though which we supply many retail outlets varying from small to large in size throughout Central and South America, the Caribbean Islands, Europe, and other parts of the world.

At El Capitan our goal is to offer the best merchandise at the lowest possible cost while maintaining the highest level of customer service and satisfaction. Our ability to meet our customers' needs in a timely and professional manner is what has made our in-store sales and shipping orders both domestically and internationally a success for almost 50 years!
