Convenient bait store if you want to drop a line and try fishing on your own. However, no fresh bait just frozen.

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 we think we can sell each day.

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. We also saw several boats come in with large amounts of fish that they caught. The Pass-A-Grille is a nice beach community so besides visiting the pier we wish we had time to spend at the beach and shops in town.

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.

My son and I wanted to try fishing while in Florida but didn't want to go out on an excursion or spend a lot of money. Went down and did the $3 pier rental to fish and rented two poles and got some bait and almost right away we were catching fish off the pier. Fun time without breaking the bank. Was fun to see some dolphins swim by as we fished. Will hit this place again if we ever go back to St. Pete.
