A little bit about us…
Jonathan Pickett and his wife Mardi Pickett are the owners of Tailwater Marine & Tackle. They have been married for eleven years and have a 4 year old son named Ethan and a daughter named Addison who was born in April 2014. Jonathan and Mardi decided to pursue their dream of business ownership in 2008 after realizing the need for an honest, dedicated, and reliable marine dealership and service center in the Clarksville and surrounding Montgomery County area. After lots of hard work and sleepless nights, they finally made that dream a reality in February 2012.
Jonathan Pickett and his family moved to Clarksville in 1986. He is the son of David Pickett and Rosemary Griggs. Jonathan is a graduate of Austin Peay State University with a bachelor’s degree in business administration.
Prior to graduating from college Jonathan spent seven years serving in the U.S. Coast Guard performing search & rescue and law enforcement operations throughout the Great Lakes and Western Rivers. During his time in the Coast Guard he served on the Coast Guard cutter Cimarron out of Paris Landing Tennessee as well as Station Michigan City. Some of his duties included: 47’ Motor Life Boat Coxswain, Response Boat Tactical Coxswain, Federal Boarding Officer, Ice Rescue Team Leader, and EMT.
Jonathan is a licensed Captain as well as an avid fisherman and hunter, and he loves spending time on Kentucky and Barkley lakes. Stop in and see him and he will put you on the fish!
Mardi Pickett was born and raised in Clarksville. She is the daughter of Don Buck and Mary Jay Montgomery both of Clarksville. She is a graduate of Clarksville High School and received her bachelor’s degree in science of nursing in 2007 from Indiana University. Upon returning to Clarksville, Mardi was hired by Gateway Medical Center and worked in the ICU for almost five years. She is currently working for the Vein Care Center as a nurse manager as well as bookkeeper for Tailwater Marine which keeps her very busy, especially when you add on chasing around a four year old and new born to her resume. If she has any free time, she loves go fishing and hunting with her husband.
We would like to introduce you to our General Manager at Tailwater Marine & Tackle, Corey Myers. Corey and his family moved to Clarksville in 2009. Corey served in the U.S. Army for 20 plus years with multiple combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. He and his wife Julie have been married for 17 years and have two wonderful sons.
Corey is an avid hunter and fisherman and when not at the shop you can bet he is on the water or in the woods. Other than that, you may find him watching his sons play baseball for Northwest High School. We are so happy to have Corey bring his attention to detail, customer service skills, and great personality to work for you at Tailwater Marine.
