Linc’s Tackle has been the heart and soul of Seattle’s urban fishing culture for generations. But that legacy almost didn’t exist when the Beppus, shop owners since the 1930s, were interned during World War II.
February 20, 2017, marked the 75th anniversary of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Executive Order 9066, which sent Japanese-Americans along the West Coast to internment camps for the duration of World War II. Tens of thousands of Seattleites were affected, and The Seattle Times published a package of stories looking back at the impact of internment and connecting it with current day events.
