We do have live shrimp every day. Not sure why you thought we only sold frozen bait unless you came on a day when we sold out of live shrimp which sometimes happens late in the afternoon. In the summer months it is more difficult to keep the shrimp alive in the warm water so we don't order more than... More

Caught several small fish from the dock and had a great time fishing here. Later we learned that you should not jerk on the pole when the fish is on. Had we known that we would have caught more fish. Great way to spend a few hours if you like fishing and fishing supplies are right there at the store.... More

My husband fishes adjacent to this little place, so I've been there often. Very nice people, clean restrooms and great proximity to Pass-A-Grille beach. They offer bait, snacks, drinks and even sunset cruises. A great place in this tiny community.

Great place to watch the pelicans devour fish guts as the fishermen clean their fish. Great place to get the very best sunset cruise.

You can be put on their email list to be updated when fresh fish arrives. We did this and bought it while on vacation. It was very good. The service is friendly and efficient. Also, their fish spread (although pricey) is one on the best that we have ever had.Worth a visit when you're in Passe Grille on St Pete's... More

Not only did we have a great time fishing but we were also able to purchase fresh seafood on the other days we were in town and cook back at the condo. They sell there fresh catch and to find Black Grouper was a bonus.
