We want to thank some of our sponsor partners as we wind down 2018 and not forget to thank many that have been with us for over a decade.  The PROcise Outdoors mounts we ran all year were flawless and the Bob's Machine Shop Action Jac Gen II Series jackplate and accompanying swim ladder were equally flawless.  We look forward to the same long-standing relationships we have had with Mercury Marine, Smith RV and Marine, Abu Garcia, Trilene, PowerBait, Simms, Mack's Lure, Costa, and Genesis Signs. 




Bob's Machine Shop was founded in 1978, with the belief that quality creates its own demand. 

Our mission is simple: to provide the best products and service to our customers at the lowest prices possible. We take great pride in our company, our commitment to customer service and in the products we sell. Our online store is designed to provide you with a safe and secure environment to browse our product catalog.

We are proud to manufacture our own products in house, on our own machinery. 




ABQ Sportfishing is proud to be partnering with Procise Outdoors and running their Dek-It series of mounts in 2019.  Great company, great people.

Today’s locators are bigger and better than ever so PROcise Outdoors created a mount unlike all the rest! Stop watching your console mounted electronics bang and bounce around putting unneeded stress on wires and the locator it self. This durable mount is built to withstand anything mother nature can throw at you and puts all the information on the screens directly in front of you so you wont miss a thing!
