Redneck jerk, seen 2 guys in my backyard yesterday looking for something and I asked, they said they were looking for an arrow, How did an arrow end up in my yard ?, They were sighting in a compound bow, I told them that was a deadly weapon that should be practiced at a range, His response was "It's not a weapon and I have a Hunting License, Huh , I live I a residential neighborhood in Orlando, told them my dogs come out side, "Oh we would not shoot your dog, I know they were shooting at the ducks in my yard. some people are just dumb and stupidity makes them dangerous...

I run a business and would never treat someone in distress as this person did. Attitudes play a big role in your business success. This will certainly hurt.

This is the kind of thing that makes us real anglers mad. There is absolutely no reason to treat someone like that. I can promise you that all my colleagues and I will be spreading this story all
Around Florida, we will not stop until there is a public apology or this business is put into the ground

I know the shop. It is a rundown converted old gas station. Parking is a big issue, it has none really, just a drive through area for the most part. I've read through the posts and let me say. The area is very close to the most run down part of town, HUD housing and such with a lot of questionable people. Not that I'm judging. I don't live to far off either. I will say this. People in Palm Bay are not "like" this Jordan, that must be, something in your mind, often we see in others what is within. There is no excuse for his behavior, true. However, "The people" of Palm Bay are not rude or hateful. This was an unfortunate event that happened at and to an unfortunate time and place and people. Nothing more. It was poor manners and a lack of gentlemanly-ness as well. By averting your business you will effect change. By expressing hatred you only become another part of the problem. BTW, there is a side street just twenty feet north where the repair could have been made without any interference at all with the said business. A single match will not start a fire when thrown into water. Sometimes it is important to watch where we choose to throw it. Either way there is no excuse for the owners lack of compassion.

well bud your a real ass. i as well will never buy anything from "Elite Anglers Bait and Tackles" in Palm Bay, Florida. and I'll be telling all of my family and friends what happen and to do the same. as we all know if your want to go fishing or have a rod repaird, you just wouldn't keep driving if one of two entrance were block. Looks like you screwed up, looks like you may lose alot more than 3 cars driving by, your not a very smart man. also i want you to know I will be contacting any and all of "Elite Anglers Bait and Tackles" Affiliates and sponsors which i would really dout that you have any, only cause i don't believe you have any busniess smarts at all. Hell I just might get a permit and a big sign and stand out in front between YOUR two entrances just to make YOUR day a little better. Have a great day asshole.

Elite Bait & Tackle in Ocala,FL. has no affiliation with Elite Anglers of Palm Bay,FL. Anyone who treats people like that should be exposed.Sadly there are people like that.

What a despicable man. Easy enough though, just put them out of business by doing business with the competition. So long Elite Anglers........

I appreciate the stand on this and I hope this spills over into political stands also. I will never buy anything where people are treated that way. Thank you.

I won't go back there either, ever. The owner is a selfish, rude, A**hole. Boycot Elite Anglers in Palm Bay FL. This guy doesn't deserve to have a business. He treats customers and others like we're beneath him. My wallet will remain above his dumb *ss, he'll never see another penny from me. AGAIN; Boycot Elite Anglers in Palm Bay FL.

Karma is an interesting thing.... seeing it at work like this is rather enjoyable. Unfortunately, this tool bag will 'stand his ground' and have 3 or 4 redneck family or friends tell him that he was justified in his behavior, instead of just owning up to his own poor judgement. The only way to affect a loudmouth arrogant loser like this is through his wallet. Enjoy "winning" your standoff pal.

Sadly, I am not at all surprised by what I see on this chain. My husband and I stopped at Elite to grab some bait last year on our anniversary trip. Whoever was working there at the time was both rude and insulting. I would never stop there again, and I will make sure all of my fishing friends in Brevard know not to shop there either.

What a truly terrible establishment. I will only be going to good Christian shops from now on. The owner needs to pray for salvation, bless his heart and soul.
