    Bait Shops?

    Planning a trip for early/mid November after our September trip was 'postponed.'

    Any word on how the bait shops/marinas are faring around Cudjoe key? We'll be buying up a boat load of chum, shrimp, and everything frozen, just want to make sure they are up and running before we head down.

    Apologies if the situation is bad and this post comes across as insensitive, without being down there I'm not sure how bad things are.

    Thanks,

    The Tackle box in Marathon is open, haven't seen reports from Cudjoe.

    You can always stop in at the (Islamorada) Tackle Center and stock up, since you're looking for frozen stock, load up there and just carry it South a bit. Besides, how can you go wrong buying at the place where Wayne Lowery met his demise------before they totally ruined that show with a HORRIFIC last season..... (Bloodline)

    Cudjoe was one of the worse places hit in the storm. I do not know who might be open down there yet. Best to phone ahead to your regular bait shops. Big Pine hit pretty good also.
    Happiness is the journey, not the destination.

    Cudjoe sales and lower keys tackle are both open! Come on down and support these local businesses getting back on their feet

    That's exactly what we'd like to do.

    What's a good bar/restaurant that needs a little injection of 4 days of hungry fishermen eating and drinking?

    Square grouper second joint is open, I think they are working on the downstairs too. Also boondocks grill is rolling as well. All good spots
