  • The best bait shop on the island! We stopped in to check it out for rentals and ended up booking a fishing charter. We booked with Captain Patrick, the best ever! and had a great flats fishing trip. T...  more »
  • We wanted to go fishing while we were in Sanibel. We stopped here for bait, some gear, and a booking with a fishing guide. They have a nice selection of clothing, snorkeling, and fishing equipment. We...  more »
  • We stopped by just to have a look. Have all you need for fishing. Staff was not very friendly with the kids so we left.

  • It's a time tested fact you will catch more fish if you buy your shrimp here. The quintessential Sanibel island bait and tackle shop - everything you need, nothing you don't. While it may be a bit more expensive than a big box retailer - be a patriot and support your local fishing businesses!
  • The young men working the store are very friendly and helpful- great work guys! Would give 5 star if this was our entire experience. The older gentleman was rude to our young son. We came in every day and spent over $300 the first 4 days we were on Sanibel and he acted like he had not seen us before.
  • Awesome! Best advice, bait and rental rods! Had the best fishing trip ever!
  • Fish must love this place cause they ate all my bait.
  • I enjoyed this shop until they failed to inform me the Sanibel pier is under construction for months after I purchased $20 in live bait.
