  • Immediately upon entering you feel like you are at home here and where really friendly people anywhere will help with advice and action. Permits, food and bait, lures, rods etc. about but it is precisely the advice what this Baitbox so special. They regulate, if desired, a fishing guide and also not hesitate to to send you to the best hotspots. As a keen (extremely) Rod athlete I come here for years like and sometimes I take his customers (tourists) can spend a day on the boat or from the shore. Here do not be friends but you have friends. The vast knowledge they like with their customers and they are never too narrow-minded to not help.

  • When I'm vacationing on the island, I go to the Bait Box for all of my rental and licensing needs. I always catch a good number of small fish off of the pier, and have a fun time.  more »
  • Great guys! Very helpful. Have bought both bait here and fishing gear. Will not go Anywhere else on the island for our fishing needs.  more »

  • 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.
