Welcome to Key West Bait and Tackle


Key West's only bait and tackle shop is located at 241 Margaret Street in Old Town Key West, Florida. We are located in the historic seaport area of Key West just next to the Half Shell Raw Bar.
We offer a wide variety of Penn fishing tackle, Calcutta gear, quality frozen bait, Costa Del Mar and Smith Sun Glasses, Pelagic gear, and many artificial trolling lures, jigs and plugs for all types of fishing.

store100-0580.jpgWe also carry all the supplies that a tackle shop would have for Key West fishing. Live bait, frozen bait, beer, ice, Penn, Shimano, Diawa, Ugly Stik and Star rods and and reels, lures, hooks, plugs and all the supplies for fishing offshore, inshore or on the flats, plus our signature Key West Bait & Tackle t-shirts, hats,  coolie cups and Key West Beach Towels. We are out of stock, so we no longer offer Light Duty Spinning Rods and Reels for rent. So if you weren't able to bring your own rod and reel don't let that stop you from getting out and fishing the local Key West waters, you will just have to buy one.

We've been in business since 1986 meeting not only the needs of the charter fisherman but the tourist & local fisherman as well.

Come into our store and browse a wide variety of rods and reels as well as tackle and lures. We can meet all your bait needs at Key West Bait & Tackle. We can set up fishing charters for you and your family and friends. Our business hours are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. 7 day a week.
