Wow its been a steamer the last week or so. The extreme heat has most fishing slowed way down. The fish are driven deep and hunkered down in the cooler water. Most anglers will be heading out to deeper water in search of cooler water temperatures. The majority of the fish  will be in deeper water offshore on points, humps, river bars and channel bends. Creative thinking time has arrived. Adapt, improvise and overcome – Stop sit and watch carefully what insects are around. Pick up rocks near or in water sift through the mud until you find bugs! Thats what the fish are feeding on.

We did finally get some much needed rain-not sure if it will affect the water level much but its definitely much cooler than the last few days.

Firearm Transfers

At this time, we are also able to process firearms transfers. This means that if you purchase a gun from an online gun dealer or for an in-person private transfer, we can accept the delivery and for a $25 fee, process the background check, do the paperwork and transfer the firearm into your name.

Currently, I am listed to accept transfers from the following online gun brokers and working on getting added to more sites. If you have a favorite gun dealer that is not listed just let me know and I will get in contact with them to get set up.



Transferring a gun to Maumee Tackle is a very easy operation.

Wherever you buy the gun they are going to need a copy of our Federal Firearms License in order to ship the gun to us.

If we are not currently listed with that particular gun broker we can mail, e-mail, or fax them a copy of our license. They will then send the gun to us for you to pick up.

They will need to include 2 things with the gun.

  1. A copy of their Federal Firearms License or a copy of their driver’s license if not a dealer.
  2. Your name and phone number.

After the gun has been processed into our system, we will call you to let you know that the gun is ready to be picked up. If you are tracking your transfer and it shows it has arrived that does not mean that it is ready to be picked up.

Please wait for us to call or you can come by 24 hours after your notification by the carrier.

To pick up the gun you will need a valid State photo ID/DL and will need to fill out a Federal Form 4473 for the background check. Once all of these are complete, and your background check is an approved, you can pay your transfer fee of $25 and take your gun home.


Maumee Tackle is always ready to help you transfer a gun. If you need us to send a copy of our FFL to another dealer or person, we can make a copy of our FFL to send to them. You can always call and talk to any of our salespeople if you have questions about this process



Can a gun be sent to my house?

No, all firearms must be sent to an FFL (federal firearms license) dealer.

Do I need to have a background check?

Yes, all firearms purchases require a federally mandated background check to be completed by the FFL dealer at the time the firearm is picked up, including in-store purchases.

Can I have the background check done before buying a gun?

No, the background check must be completed at the time the firearm is transferred from the FFL dealer to you.

Do I need to have a concealed carry permit?

No, you do not need a carry permit to purchase a gun.

Is it legal to buy a gun online?

Yes! It is entirely legal to purchase a firearm online, but the firearm must be shipped to a licensed FFL dealer.

Why does the firearm need to be shipped to an FFL?

The Gun Control Act of 1968 outlined new rules for selling and transferring firearms. As a result, it is now federal law to have all firearms shipped to an FFL dealer so the person the firearm is being transferred to can fill out the proper paperwork and complete the required background check.
