Our Products

We pride ourselves on quality, lively bait. Our live baits are kept in three filtered, temperature controlled bait wells.  All live baits are delivered daily. Our frozen bait are from the leading frozen bait supplier in the state.  We are committed to making sure you leave us prepared for an amazing day of fishing!

We carry the tackle that is time tested and proven for our area.  We carry artificial bait for all local species like Redfish, Snook, Tarpon, Trout and many more.  We also make our own rigs for both inshore and offshore fishing.  Beyond the gear, our team of fantastic fishermen are available to outfit your every need. Old salts or first timers alike will find our combination of products and our friendly, knowledgeable staff a winning combination!

Once you have the gear, count on us to rig it and spool it! We have every hook, line and sinker you will need to hit the fishing from Howard Park, Anclote Key or out to the middle grounds.

Although we don't provide charters ourselves, we have a few excellent local Captains that we have teamed up with.  Click to check them out.
