Old St Pete on 4th St!
Feb 2020
This is a classic bait shop where you can hours telling "fish stories" or just grab your bait and go! The Mastry family has been in St Pete for generations and the down home care and charm of the bait shop shows how mch they care about the community!

A Tiny Piece of Old Florida is Still Thriving at Mastry's
Jun 2019 • Solo
We recently moved to St. Petersburg. I finally began to think about fishing. I needed to gear up. At first I thought about going to Dick's. Then it occurred to me that what I needed more than anything was local knowledge. I had heard about Mastry's so I gave it a try.

One of the Mastry brothers greeted me when I arrived at the store. I began to pepper him with questions. He patiently and modestly answered every one. He got me set up with the right gear and a lot of great tips about where to fish. He didn't tell me what to do. He just explained what he did.

Rather than spend a fortune on new gear, I left my two favorite spin casting rods with Mastry's to have the tips replaced. I also left him with five reels to have new line put on.

But here's the thing I wasn't expecting: Mastry's is also the best seafood store in St. Petersburg. Don't expect stuffed flounder, smoked fish spreads or any fancy prepared seafood. What you will find is a floor full of big cooler chests filled with the freshest seafood that Tampa Bay has to offer. The grouper filet that we took home was out of this world. It could have been swimming in the morning and on our dinner table the same night. The seafood variety at Mastry's also is exceptional. If it is in season, they will have it.

If you don't fish and even if you don't eat seafood, go to Mastry's to soak up some old Florida flavor.

Great bait
Dec 2017 • Friends
The Mastrys are longtime people in the fishing world. When I lived down there I was in this store a couple of times a week. They had the lures I wanted. They had anything I needed. Now, a fishing guide, I get most of my gear from the companies and don't go into shops much. But I know my clients do. Anyone who lives in south St Pete and fishes, they need to make Mastry's a regular stop

The next time you want fresh seafood to cook you must go to mastrys. Pick from their coolers fresh off the boat snapper, grouper, mullet and jumbo pink shrimp

Fresh fish

Stopped to pick up fresh shrimp after a day of touring the area. Shrimp were fresh and made a good meal. Shop was also well stocked with tackle for salt water fisherman.

Old school tackle shop run by savvy anglers
Nov 2017 • Business
Mastry's isn't just a bait and tackle shop,if you want fresh fish but have no time to catch them yourself, they sell fresh fish. But if you want to catch them yourself they have everything you need, from sinkers and line to rods, reels, bait, and anything else. If you have some old reels or rods that just don't work right,they repair them at a modest cost. Looking for advice on where to go? They guys here keep tabs on what fish are where and can steer you in the right direction.It's a family-owned business that was established decades ago and stands the test of time.It's old school but run by the some of the best and most knowledgeable in the business.

Right Off the Boat Fresh
Mar 2018 • Couples
Whenever I am in the mood for home cooked fish or shrimp I go to Mastry's. They sell the freshest fish and shrimp, obtained daily from local fishermen. My favorite is grouper, premium priced but far less than you will pay in a restaurant. Although I am not a fisherman, all the bait and supplies any fisherman would need can be found at Mastry's. And check out all the shore birds out front!
