A combination of the words Trolling and Tackle.
Forty years is a long time. And in that time they have grown to become the best place on the coast to get your gear. Why? Because they will not sell you gear you won’t use, they always make sure you know the right way to do a job, and they will help you find it if we don’t have it.
Trotac truly is a family business, there’s been three generations working in the store, and some of the staff for at least half that. Founded in 1972 by Pete Thomson, it started out with Pete and his wife supplying to the west coast commercial fishing fleet. All the kids helped in the store as well, with packaging and deliveries, and Campbell ended up partnering with his dad to help create the Trotac that exists today.
