Pakenham Boating Camping Fishing Store
About Pakenham BCF
BCF Pakenham is stocked with all the outdoor adventure supplies you can imagine – including camping essentials, fishing gear and boating equipment. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned expert, our team behind the counter and throughout the shop can provide product recommendations, tips on catching local fish species and point you toward the best boating, camping or fishing locations in the area.
Sharing some of their knowledge here, the team at BCF Pakenham recommend Toorongo Falls in Noojee as a great camping location and suggest taking a good tent, some camp chairs, an icebox, camp lighting and cooking essentials. The campgrounds themselves provide designated firepits as well as toilet facilities.
If you’re keen to wet a line, Pakenham has a number of lakes and wetlands in the immediate area which are stocked year-round with rainbow trout and redfin. These fish are likely to be caught with a fishing combo ranging 1-4kg, hard-bodied lures, small soft plastic and powerbait. Any tassie devils and spinners would also do well to live in your tackle box for fishing throughout the Pakenham area.
It’s important to ensure when boating, you always have PFDs, flares and EPIRB on board. Pair your safety gear with a boat cover, rod holders and a sounder for the ultimate set-up. As for rods, popular brands are the old faithful Shimano, Daiwa and Savage Gear with terminal tackle including Mustad, BKK and Gamakatsu.
Providing more than just your boating, camping and fishing essentials, BCF Pakenham can also cater to your caravanning, four-wheel-drive and outdoor apparel needs. For the caravan, invest in a custom made Slumberest mattress and a portable toilet. Towing mirrors and wheel chocks wouldn’t go amiss either but be sure not to leave behind the recovery gear, battery box or solar panels if you’re going off track for some bush camping. During winter, pick up a range of base layers or thermals as well as rainwear and puffer jackets from Under Armour or Macpac. When you hit the trails, Merrell and Columbia are available to deliver high-performance men’s hiking boots and women’s hiking shoes that will help you combat the elements.
