Heromu Akagi (aka Hi) started Hi's Tackle Box in 1981 in the Inner Richmond District of San Francisco on Geary Boulevard.  Hi's quickly developed a loyal clientele and catered not only to the local anglers, but also to the long range fisherman in Baja and San Diego.

In 1982, Hi took Jonah Li under his wing by teaching him the ins and outs of the fishing industry.  It wasn't long before Jonah's dedication to the job had him promoted to become the shop's manager.

Hi decided to retire in 1988 and he sold the shop to Jonah.  Upon taking over the shop, Jonah sought to hire Steven Lau (aka Hippo) to work in his new enterprise.  Since that time, Hi's has become the premier tackle shop in the San Francisco Bay Area.  There have been a number of employees that have come and gone from the shop and each of them has contributed to the body of knowledge and experience of the shop. 

In 1992 Hi's Tackle Box moved to Clement Street and continued to expand and serve the fishing community.  In December 2008, we decided to move the shop to our current location on the Peninsula. 

Within the tackle industry, Hi's has become the place for manufacturers to go to for innovative advice and design consultation.  Hi's has made its mark known in products such as line construction, and rod and reel design.

With the development of Hi's Tackle Box's online shop at <<histackleboxshop.com>> Hi's is now sharing its expertise with a nationwide audience.  We are a real brick and mortar shop and we welcome you to come visit us whenever you are in the area!  But even if you can't make it here to see us in person, just know that our friendly service is merely a phone call away.
