Ernie's Tackle Shop was established in 1938. It has been in our family for 3 generations since 1960 when it became Ernie's Tackle and Ski Shop. Owned and operated by John Logue pictured below with his Dad, Mike Logue the second generation owner.
Ken Willingham was working as a store supervisor for Alpha Beta Markets in southern California with a long career in retail sales. Ken's lifelong favorite leisure activity had been trout fishing, he and Louise and their kids would vacation in the Eastern High Sierra's camping and fishing every summer. In 1960, Louise learned of a Tackle and Gift shop that was for sale in June Lake. Wanting to ease the stress of their hectic Southern California lifestyle she suggested or rather gave the ultimatum that they make this move. After a few years of operating as a seasonal summer buisness, they decided to go year round and Ernie's Tackle and Gift Shop became Ernie's Tackle and Ski Shop. The Willingham's retired in 1975 selling the business to their daughter and son-in-law Mike & Elayne Logue.
