Steven Markley and James Arcaro, two wild land firefighters from Florida, pitch Reely Hooked Fish Company, their smoked fish dip, in Shark Tank episode 907. The two co-workers share a love of fishing – and eating their catch. They use old family recipes to cook their fresh caught seafood and a favorite of friends and family alike is their smoked fish dip.
The Reely Hooked Seafood Company signature dip is made from amberjack and kingfish (king mackerel) the guys catch off their own boat in the waters off Fort Lauderdale. They use locally sourced ingredients and brine all their fish for 8 hours. After the fish is ready, it's smoked low and slow with native hardwoods. Once smoked, they add their “secret fruit” and a non-mayonnaise alternative that enhances the flavor of their fish. They call their finished product the “crack" of all appetizers.
Reely Hooked Fish Company dip is currently available in select locations throughout Florida and on the company website. One tub costs $12 and a three pack is $32. To maintain a fresh product, they only ship on Tuesdays. Since the guys are firefighters, they wanted to give back. 5% of every sale goes to a variety of firefighter foundations across the country.
Steven and James likely need help expanding their retail footprint. They want a Shark's help getting in front of grocery chains and national distributors. Will a Shark dip into their wallet and invest in this business?
