Lowcountry angler Robert Boodle was frustrated by the lack of affordable options in the marine electronics and retail tackle industry. So, in the fall of 2016, he did what came naturally and designed a solution.

Boodle, the owner of Palmetto Outdoorsman, is a problem solver by occupation. As a designer for an engineering firm, it’s his job to make complex systems seamless for consumers.

In the fall of 2016, Boodle had become dissatisfied by his lack of options. Spending 180 days on the road each year gave him ample opportunity to create an alternative.

“It started out that I needed something to do while I was out of town,” said Boodle. “I was looking for some kind of online business to get into, and I was frustrated by not being able to find the lures that I liked to fish with locally. The other thing I wanted to accomplish was to help the local 40-hour workweek angler buy quality tackle at affordable prices.”

The Walterboro native has fished the Tri-County waterways his entire life, and is a believer in supporting local businesses. As a businessman who uniquely understands his customers’ needs, Boodle is always on the lookout for local vendors to meet them.
